Microids' Syberia: The World Before Collector's Edition launches today for PlayStation 4, bundled with an artbook and digital soundtrack.

The fourth installment in the French publisher’s long-running graphic adventure series is currently available for, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows through Steam. The World Before marks the final, posthumous entry directed by Belgian comic artist Benoit Sokal.

The Syberia series finale recounts the story of Dana Roze, a 17-year-old girl embarking on a promising career as a pianist in the town of Vaghen, as the threat of fascism looms over Europe. Flashing forward, from 1937 to 2004, the graphic adventure continues the tale of series mainstay Kate Walker as she endures imprisonment in a salt mine in Taiga.

Music for the game is by Israeli-American composer Inon Zur, a veteran of the industry known for his scores for the Fallout series, Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age and Bethesda Softworks’ upcoming Starfield. The 27-track score clocks in at just under an hour, featuring Emily Bear on solo piano.

Decca Records' double vinyl soundtrack release ships from distributors Center Stage Classical and Play-Asia, enclosed in a gatefold jacket decorated with artwork by the creative director. The prologue script by Sokal and Lucas Lagravette is on Steam, while the digital edition of the soundtrack is streaming on Spotify and YouTube Music.
