Broken Sword: The Angel of Death is the fourth instalment in the Broken Sword line that follows George Stobbart in all of his unusual and Indiana Jones-like adventures.

The Angel of Death (not to be confused with the cruddy Tomb Raider game of the same name) starts after Stobbart's life finally settles down to a desk job with regular working hours. His life becomes very mundane, that is, until a mysterious girl appears and then disappears in his life. Now Stobbart must travel the world once again looking for artifacts and trying to uncover an ancient mystery.

With a complete rebuild, the game's engine not only allows for an unprecedented level of detail, but the Virtual Actor System allows the player to read character emotions almost as if they were the real thing.

Broken Sword 4 is scheduled for release this Fall and promises to be one of the best adventure titles to come out this year.
