GOG.com is joining forces with Revolution Software’s Charles Cecil to bring the original version of Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars (a.k.a. The Circle of Blood) to its catalog of digitally-distributed DRM-free retro games. Players who purchase the high-resolution Broken Sword Director’s Cut will receive the acclaimed original as a free downloadable bonus. Anyone who has already purchased Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars Director’s Cut will receive the classic for free.
“Broken Sword is one of the best adventure games of all time,” said Guillaume Rambourg, Managing Director of GOG.com. “After releasing the Director’s Cut, many of our old-school gamers expressed an interest in bringing back the original Broken Sword, so with Charles Cecil’s approval, we have dusted off the original and added it to the Director’s Cut at no cost to our users. It just shows that no matter how much of a makeover you give a product, the classics will never go out of style!”
Broken Sword Director’s Cut with the original version of the game is exclusively available at GOG.com for $5.99.
