SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Oct. 25, 2016 King’s Quest™ – Chapter 5: The Good Knight , the incredible finale of the new King’s Quest series from Sierra™ and developer The Odd Gentlemen, has arrived on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC via Steam. Drawing together the characters, conflicts and choices from five acts of adventure, King’s Quest – Chapter 5: The Good Knight finds King Graham near the end of his days, going on one last journey to save his beloved Daventry against a threat born from his very first days in the kingdom.

Sierra has also released a physical version of King’s Quest: The Complete Collection at select retailers for the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and Xbox 360. King’s Quest: The Complete Collection is a bundle* containing all five chapters of the game plus a bonus playable story epilogue, expected this fall.

Inspired by the curiosity and charm of one of adventure gaming’s most treasured names, the new King’s Quest has boldly reimagined the legend of King Graham for both longtime fans and newcomers to discover. Using an elderly Graham’s bedside stories to his inquisitive granddaughter Gwendolyn, the game transports players back to experience firsthand the most extraordinary puzzles, personalities and tales of his astonishing life.

King’s Quest: The Complete Collection and the King’s Quest™: Season Pass (a bundle containing Chapters 2-5) are available** now as digital purchases through the PlayStation®Store, Xbox Games Store and Steam.
