Thirty-five years after its inception, Sierra has returned and with it, modern reimaginings of renowned series King's Quest and Geometry Wars. Introduced this week at Gamescom, Sierra will bring a new focus on indie game development of both new IP and revamped classic titles.

Beginning this holiday season, Lucid Games will breathe new life into Geometry Wars with Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions — a fully 3D incarnation of the arcade series that adds singleplayer, cooperative, and online competitive multiplayer gameplay. It will offer both dynamic and persistent progression and spans 50 missions and 10 battle modes, including old favorites like Pacifism and King, as well as five series firsts, like Claustrophobia, which places players in an ever-changing maze.


Then, next year, The Odd Gentleman studio will bring back King's Quest with a contemporary art style, new puzzles, and a new story. It centers around legendary adventurer King Graham as he recounts and relives his greatest adventures with his granddaughter Gwendolyn.


Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions arrives later this year on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC for $14.99. For more info on Sierra, check out
