Ubi Soft announces new adventure: Myst IV revelation

Montreal Studio Set to 'Reveal' the Next Title in the Myst Franchise
Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, today revealed the critically acclaimed and best-selling Myst franchise will launch its newest adventure, Myst IV Revelation, this fall. Peter Gabriel, world-renowned recording artist, composed an individual song to compliment the soundtrack of award-winning composer Jack Wall which creates the game's immersive and ambient soundtrack.

"Myst IV Revelation will be welcome addition to the Myst franchise, strengthening what is already a world-wide leader in the Adventure category," said Alain Corre, Ubisoft's Managing Director for Europe, Asia Pacific and South America. "We are now back to the roots with this new opus, in perfect line with the first trilogy of games Myst, Eiven and Myst III: Exile. Myst IV Revelation will be the first Myst game to be developed in our own Ubisoft Montreal studios, and we are extremely proud of this".

Within the visually awe-inspiring world of Myst, a gripping family drama will slowly unfold. Players are engaged in uncovering the mystery surrounding a little girl's disappearance, daring to venture deep inside the intense worlds of two evil, villainous brothers, Sirrus and Achenar. Understanding their motives will be the key to the investigation, which will lead to a true "revelation".

"Myst IV Revelation will take players into the twisted minds and worlds of two evil brothers, deep inside an intense family drama, and immerse them within a visually stunning environment,' said Genevieve Lord, producer at Ubisoft. "The game is simply a "must-have" for Myst fans and will also appeal to new players. The suspenseful storyline, compelling puzzles and the music, featuring a new track by Peter Gabriel, as well as score produced by Jack Wall, will create an unparalleled experience."
