Adventures fans get ready for Secrets of the Ark (named Broken Sword: The Angel of Death in the UK) for the PC. The Adventure Company also released some new screenshots for you to check out.

The Adventure Company, the leading publisher of PC adventure games, today announced that Secrets of the Ark, the North American release of ‘Broken Sword: The Angel of Death’ for Windows, is now shipping in North America. Secrets of the Ark will sell for a suggested retail price of $29.99 USD.

Players will enjoy several new game features such as the Virtual Actor System allowing players to build relationships with game heroes. Use your skill and intuition to interrogate these characters and solve challenging, yet logical, puzzles where all aspects of the game come in to play. You will be enthralled, challenged and drawn into a dark world of conspiracy theories, daring adventure and ancient societies as you unearth the blueprints to the world’s most deadly weapon hidden within the lost Ark.

After reluctantly battling dragons, Mayan gods and becoming a Knight of a long lost Holy Order, unwitting hero George Stobbart settles down to the life of a mundane 9 to 5 desk job. Who would have thought that a mysterious and beautiful woman would enter his life; a woman whose sudden disappearance draws him into a desperate search for a nefarious artifact of great and terrible power known as ‘The Angel of Death’ – its primitive blueprints hidden inside the Ark of the Covenant.

Moses was the last to unleash this deadly weapon on the ancient Egyptians during the Exodus with terrifying effect – it was the most horrific of the Great Plagues. Uncannily, it seemed to be able to kill selectively, leaving the Israelites unharmed. Later, when the Ark was stolen from the Israelites, the killing recommenced and continued until the Ark, along with the secrets of Moses’ awesome weapon, was lost…


* Built upon an entirely new engine, Secrets of the Ark promises a greater level of detail and realism to characters and game world
* Cutting-edge proprietary Virtual Actor System enables the player to read character emotions and develop close relationships with the heroes and diverse cast of characters
* Hollywood style globe-trotting featuring extremely rich and varied environments from around the world for players to explore

As the fourth installment of the Broken Sword franchise, ‘Broken Sword: The Angel of Death’ has been renamed to better appeal to the North American adventure gaming market, and to reflect the mystery at the heart of the adventure – the Ark of the Covenant. Developed by Revolution Software and Sumo Digital, Secrets of the Ark is rated ‘T’ for Teen by the ESRB. Please visit our website for further information at www.AdventureCompanyGames.com.
