If you’ve read our Syberia 3 review, or maybe you’ve been lucky enough to enter our sweepstake and win a key, then you’ll no doubt be very interested to know that the first Syberia 3 DLC called An Automaton With a Plan is due to be released on November 9th.
An Automaton with a Plan is a whole new chapter in Syberia 3, continuing the adventures of Kate Walker. However, before you run off and think about jumping straight in, it is advisable to have completed Syberia 3 before installing the DLC.
To refresh your memory, the story of Syberia 3 begins when a dying Kate Walker is rescued in the middle of Siberia by the Youkol tribe, nomads accompanying the ancient migration of their great snow ostriches to the sacred steppes, the ostriches’ mating ground. Feeling that she owes the Youkols her life, Kate decides to help them continue their journey. Together, they discover places that are as enchanting as they are dangerous, such as Valsembor, irradiated Baranour, and the mysterious lake, which some say is haunted, that separates the two cities.
The new chapter takes place after the events of Syberia 3. Kate Walker and the Youkol tribe come across the ruins of Olympia Stadium. Kate Walker has been kidnapped by a tenacious detective with the name Nic Cantin, who’s been asked to bring her back to New York by any means possible. You play as Oscar, an automaton who has set out to free her. Of course being a robot means he’s calculated a fool-proof way of rescuing her, but fate has her hand in making things a little more complicated than he had calculated.
So, in a little under two weeks, players will once again be able to dive into the enchanted world of Benoit Sokal with the Syberia 3 DLC “An Automaton with a Plan”. It’s free for everyone who already owns the game on PC, and for all on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
