Beyond a Steel Sky Is A Sequel To 1994’s Cyberpunk Classic

During the Apple Arcade reveal event, Beyond a Steel Sky, sequel to 1994’s cyberpunk classic Beneath a Steel Sky, has been announced for PC, consoles, and iOS devices.

Beyond a Steel Sky is a thrilling story of loyalty and redemption set in an eerie and terrifying world of AI-driven social controls. It’s featuring 3D graphics in comparison with the original game.

As can be expected of a Revolution adventure, the tale is woven with the studio’s signature humor, supported by legendary comic book artist Dave Gibbons’ acclaimed artistic style.

The title gets described as “a unique, rich game experience in an bounded sandbox world, interwoven with a deep narrative.”

Beyond a Steel Sky is a hugely ambitious adventure in which intelligent, humorous emergent gameplay drives an edgy narrative. Very much an adventure, the game is set in a dynamic, bounded-sandbox world. A unique world that will respond to—and be subverted by—the player’s actions.

The game characters, driven by advanced AI tech, are willful and motivated: their intelligent responses allow interesting, emergent solutions to puzzles and obstacles. The culmination of Revolution’s 30 years of developing adventure games, Beyond a Steel Sky evolves and redefines the adventure genre.

More information about the game include:

  • A story that enables players to profoundly affect and subvert the game world and its characters.
  • Elegantly simple, intuitive controls that allow complex situations to emerge, offering a gameplay experience that will appeal to the novice as well as the experienced gamer.
  • Custom-written cutting-edge graphics technology delivers a beautiful, real time, comic-book-styled world in HDR, and 4K to complement the artwork of Dave Gibbons.
  • Original comic book vignette to be created by Dave Gibbons.
