"The Last Express" to be Released on iOS

Posted on September 24, 2012 by

Developer and publisher DotEmu has recently announced that it will be releasing the 1997 classic game The Last Express on iOS systems.

The game takes place in July 1914 on the eve of World War I. The Orient Express is about to make a final journey from Paris to Constantinople and players are put into the shoes of Robert Cath. Robert is an American doctor on the run from the French police who has received an urgent telegram from a friend and has boarded the train only to be tossed into a web of intrigue.

The iOS release will be a faithful port of the original 1997 game. Players will be able to interact in real-time with over thirty characters. Players will need to find ways to stay alive as they eavesdrop on conversations, sneak into compartments, and engage in deadly activities such as fighting opponents or defusing explosives.

The Last Express is expected to be released on September 27th, 2012.
