King's Quest 2015: Chapter 4 Release Date

What is the King’s Quest 2015: Chapter 4 release date? September 2016 most likely! Hints were given in a new Game Developers Conference 2016 interview with creator Matt Korba (interview quotes & video below) that leads us to believe we can expect a new downloadable episode every 4 months, in line with the previous two episode’s 4.5 months roll-out window, since they keep each episode in development until it’s great enough for even the biggest of King’s Quest fans; While all they would indirectly confirmed is that that will be in the last half of 2016, we think you can expect Chapter 4 to arrive sometime in August 2016 at the earliest on the now-confirmed date of September 27th, 2016.

  • Chapter 4 Release Info:

    Interview quotes: If the chapter releases are similar to how other episodic adventure games have a spread-out release, it could mean the 2 remaining chapters will arrive over the next 8 months, around 1 new chapter being released every 4 to 4.5 months. But we won’t know for sure until Chapter 4 gets released… which hopefully happens by the end of August 2016. More on that below…

    The only solid release date information we have on Chapter 4 & 5 is directly from the source. In a brand new GamereactorTV interview from GDC 2016 in mid-April, one of the series’ creators, Matt Korba, President and Creative Director of developer The Odd Gentlemen said:

    “It’ll come out in a reasonable amount of time. Yeah [hopefully around the same timespan as previous episodes], it’ll be reasonable.” -Creative Director Matt Korba

    “Uhm, we haven’t announced [the release timeframe] yet. I mean, we sort of, we’ve had them all planned out from the start. We’re a small team and we’re working on a pretty big game. So every time we finish one [chapter] we roll out people and start the next one. We don’t have an A and B Team, we’re not a machine for cranking out episodic games. The fans have been very supportive of that, because they’d rather have something that’s good then something that’s rushed.”

    He continued: “So we haven’t announced when the next one is coming out yet, but again, you’re not gonna have to wait a year or a year and a half or anything like that. It’ll come out in a reasonable amount of time. Yeah [hopefully around the same timespan as previous episodes], it’ll be reasonable.”

    Official quotes: “*Subsequent chapters and epilogue may be downloaded in-game as available upon individual release throughout 2015 and 2016.”

    The King’s Quest Steam page also mentions how the upcoming chapters will be made available.

    The description reads: “Future chapters can be downloaded from in-game upon individual release throughout 2015 and 2016.” As seen in the Main Menu screencap at the top of this page.

    Note: The official King’s Quest website lists Chapters 4-5 as “Coming Soon!” 😮

    Chapter 4 Story Details:

    Synopsis: Unconfirmed as of yet, but as you can see in our “King’s Quest 2015: Chapter 3 Walkthrough“, the Chapter 3 ending suggests King Graham will continue telling his stories from his sickbed.

    The lead-in to Chapter 4 reveals the following artwork and screenshots:


    “Season 1” Info: Developed by The Odd Gentlemen, an independent studio with a talent for crafting fantastical tales, characters and worlds, the new King’s Quest rekindles the classic charm and curiosity that has captivated fans of this family-friendly series for over 30 years. As an aging King Graham looks back on a life of heroic adventure with his precocious granddaughter, Gwendolyn, players will be able to experience first-hand the unforgettable puzzles, places and personalities of his greatest untold stories. The first passage in a five-chapter journey, King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember unfolds on Graham’s early days as a bright-eyed teen in Daventry, competing in a contest of wit and valour for a knighthood in King Edward’s royal court.

    Players can purchase King’s Quest: The Complete Collection, which is a bundle containing all five chapters of the new King’s Quest along with an exclusive bonus playable story epilogue on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store and Steam. Alternately, those who buy King’s Quest: A Knight to Remember individually at launch can choose to purchase the King’s Quest Season Pass, securing their access to the remaining four chapters of the game once available, but not the bonus epilogue.

    Here’s an interview with the creators about the new King’s Quest:

    In this E3 2015 video The Odd Gentlemen founder & the game’s Creative Director Matt Korba as well as Producer Lindsey Rostal talk about the early parts of the new King’s Quest.

    Up next, PlayStation’s Meredith Molinari interviews Lindsey Rostal and the E3 2015 video ends (at 8:30 minutes in) with further Chapter story ideas, including a fun Season 2 idea for another princess with potentially more grandkids to tell stories to.

    Future Updates:

    This section is reserved for future updates. For whenever Sierra announces when the fourth chapter of the new King’s Quest is expected to arrive on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC via Steam.

    September 21 Update: The Odd Gentlemen finally came out of hibernation to announce that “King’s Quest Chapter 4: Snow Place Like Home will launch worldwide Sept. 27th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 & PC”. Here’s the first screenshot.

    Seriously Sierra has the WORST PR people! Who announces a release just days ahead of time after being quiet for 5 MONTHS!?! They game’s official website hasn’t even been updated in a year since Chapter 2 came out in 2015. 🙁

    What do you think will happen in the next chapter of King’s Quest?

      I have decided to no longer play or pay for this game. The fact that I have to wait weeks or months to purchase a game and play it chapter by chapter annoys the heck out of me. Several of my friends agreed with me. When games are released, the makers don’t sit there and go “ok, we’re going to release Halo but only the first 3 levels…..” or “Ok we’re going to release Diablo 3 but only up to this point..and then we’ll release the next section….3 months later….”.

      It’s a really downer. And I was excited to purchase and play chapter 4 and 5 but refuse to because of this now.

      Yeah it tricked me, Got a PS4 for Xmas and Kings Quest 1 was a free game of the month. Downloaded it and loved it, good length and great puzzles. Saw it was part 1 of 5 and was excited so I paid for the season pass. Waited for the second one and it was blah. Waited forever for the 3rd one and it was better than the second one but that didn’t take much, still didn’t live up to the first. Now I don’t really care about 4 or 5, I guess I’ll play em since they are paid for but my expectations are pretty low at this point.

      You are obviously a born lair, you will play it , you will do whatever they say and “pay for it”, and you sure will wait for it. So get back behind your computer and keep checking back.

    • irvin

      I paid for the season pass thinking all episodes were already out and it wasn’t loved the first 3 but hate waiting for the other 2 i don’t like having to wait for the game after these 2 release never again will I buy without knowing if the whole game is completed

    • OdontophiliacQueen

      I absolutely adore this game, and one of the reasons why i do is the incredible amount of detail in the artwork,the textures. It just drips with atmosphere, and the characters are lovable. I’d much rather wait extra time than have the dev team suffer burnout because they have to keep cranking out episodes at breakneck speed. I think they’re doing great.

    • Jenee

      Lovely concepts, art, voicework, and especially creative. What I loved most was the possibilities of different outcomes so that I was encouraged to play through more than twice to find out what could have happened if I’d tried something else. I’m glad there are carry-overs from earlier decisions so that the influence of my mistakes and such are referenced later.
