It’s been greater than 26 years since Revolution Software program launched their landmark journey recreation Beneath a Metal Sky on PC, and now it seems its long-awaited sequel is lastly nearing launch. It’s titled Past a Metal Sky, and funnily sufficient, it started life as a failed stretch aim through the Kickstarter marketing campaign for Damaged Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse ($4.99) again in 2012. Though they didn’t fairly hit the stretch aim quantity, Revolution was actually touched by the passion from the followers in the direction of the concept of a sequel to their 1994 cult basic, and they also promised that a sequel would become a reality someday sooner or later. When Apple initially introduced Apple Arcade again in March of final 12 months, Past a Metal Sky was one of many video games confirmed for the platform, which appeared becoming because it was about ten years prior that Revolution released an excellent remastered version of the original on the iOS platform referred to as Beneath a Metal Sky: Remastered ($2.99). As followers nonetheless wait in anticipation, at the moment Revolution has launched an superior new story trailer for Past a Metal Sky through IGN, test it out.
Clearly Past a Metal Sky takes on fairly a special kind than its 1994 predecessor. The visuals are all performed in full 3D with a comic book book-esque artwork fashion harking back to one thing just like the Borderlands video games. Nonetheless, the tone of the sport that skirts between comical and critical and your complete dystopian vibe of the sport are unmistakably in the identical vein as Beneath a Metal Sky, and it’ll positively be a visit to revisit Union Metropolis on this method greater than 20 years after the unique recreation. Most significantly of all is that this might be an story-driven journey recreation by and thru, a sequel greater than 1 / 4 century within the making. Unimaginable. Sadly there is no such thing as a particular launch date revealed simply but, because it often the case with Apple Arcade video games, however the truth that there’s a brand new trailer provides me hope that Past a Metal Sky received’t be too far off into the longer term.
