Getting the right  present for your loved ones this winter can be quite a stressful activity. The ideal situation would be to find the best present weeks before, but that’s kind of difficult since we all tend to leave things to the very last minute. We have a gift suggestion for you: Siberia 3, the long awaited game from Microïds which lands on the Xbox One and Windows PCs at the right time, on December 1.

This is the third game in the series and comes 12 years after the previous one. Fans waited for quite a while, indeed.

Syberia 3 begins with Kate Walker adrift on a makeshift craft. Fortunately, a caravan of the Youkol people, whom she encountered in Syberia 2, finds her before her life slips away. Determined to evade their common enemies, Kate decides to help the nomads fulfill the oddest of their ancestral traditions: accompanying the transhumance of the snow ostriches to the holy steppes where they can reproduce. The journey unfolds through scenery that is by turn enchanting and laid to waste, where the young woman will experience her most dangerous and wonderful adventures, with her pursuers always right behind her…

The game developer already revealed the first two characters in the game: Ayawaska and Simon Steiner.

Ayawaska is only 1.10 meter-tall, but this little laughing lady has a lot of influence. She is the shaman of the Youkol tribe that Kate Walker left at the end of Syberia II. Ayawaska will offer Kate to accompany her in the snow ostrich’s transhumance, and throughout the journey, the shaman will offer precious advice to Kate. The only challenge is decrypting the mysterious form of her predictions.

Simon Steiner is a genius craftsman and owns the clockmaker’s shop in Valsembor, a city near the Youkol camp. As grumpy and suspicious as he may seem at first sight, this old man is very kind. Kate depends on him and she will have to gain his trust so that he accepts to build an essential element if her journey with the Youkol tribe is to continue.

Microïds also revealed screenshots of the game and judging by the images, this adventure game will definitely be extremely addictive.
