Broken Sword 4 to feature multiple control interfaces! - 5/4 2006
According to the game magazie "Gamesmaster" who made a Broken Sword 4 artice, Broken Sword 4 - The Angel of Death will have direct control system (Broken Sword 3 - The Sleeping Dragon) as an option and the classic point 'n' click (Broken Sword 1 and 2). Also theres a little hint on the storyline from the artice:
"Since Broken Sword 3, George has fallen on hard times, no one will hire him (presumably as a lawyer), except for a Bail-bond company in New York, where he currently works. It seems Anna Maria hires George to recover the manuscript, which leads him trying to make his way into the Meat Packing factory, tricking a worker to step outside for a few seconds while George takes his apron.
So maybe a lot of the story will be featured in USA rather than the "usual" Europe?
New Broken Sword 4 wallpaper! - 3/4 2006
A new Broken Sword 4 wallpaper have been released. Check out the wallpaper here. In the pictures George and the new character Anna-Maria is seen being shot at in an apartment, but the bullet hits a picture in a glass frame. Could it be George's apartment, or maybe at his work? If you look closley through the window in the apartment, it's probably the Brookly Bridge, which means this is New York. Another proof is the "New York times" magazine on the desk. Also, the girl on the picture looks like Nico (and who would it else be?). So it could definitley be George's apartment/work!

Broken Sword 4 to be point 'n' click!! - 3/2 2006
PC Gamer: "BS4 will be point and click controlled. Charles Cecil has confirmed that Revolution will be moving back into that style of game, after the third employed a rather clunky third-person movement style. See some developers are nice enough to listen to the fans and understand that there's certain strengths you have to play to."
Reported by captainbaseballbatboy and confirmed by Tony Warriner here.
Wow!! Sounds really exciting, dosen't it! Now people who wanted a 2D point 'n' click atleast gets 50% of what they wanted!

Broken Sword 4 climbing on hype-o-meter!!! - 1/10 2005
Adventure Gamers have updated their Hype-o-meter (top ten list of upcoming games). Last update, Broken Sword 4 was on the hype-o-meter for the first time, and it got on a nice 6th place. But now the game have climbed a good way and is on a decent 3rd place. Adventure Gamers says:
3. Broken Sword 4: "Also leaping three spots is the latest 3D installment in the now-ongoing saga of George and Nico. We'd rather not hype a game we know so little about, but, c'mon... It's Broken Sword, and we're stoked. The first person to say the word "crates" gets electro-shocked through cyberspace."
Broken Sword 4 on Hype-o-meter!! - 25/8 2005
Broken Sword has recieved a 6th place in Adventure Gamers Hype-o-meter (a top ten list with the most popular upcoming games). This is Adventure Gamers comments:
#6: Broken Sword 4. Yeah, that's the other game I was thinking of!! Indeed, the fourth part of the Broken Sword... um... trilogy is now official. I know, I KNOW we all got burned by BASS2 becoming vaporware right before our eyes (or, NOT right before our eyes, I guess), but BS4 comes with publisher backing from the get-go. Simple equation from Chinese fortune cookie say, "money in pocket mean game in hand". In any case, look for BS4 to climb the charts when actual development begins in earnest. The announcement alone gets it a very respectable sixth place.
