Revolution Software's point-and-click adventure series Broken Sword is getting a new sequel with Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse. Revolution has just announced the release dates through their Kickstarter page.

The Serpent's Curse is split into two episodes, with the first being released on December 4th for PC, Mac and Linux. The second episode will be released next January. Versions for Android, iOS, and Playstation Vita are planned as well, though their release dates have yet to be announced.
