The episodic video game saga known as "King's Quest" has done a remarkable job rebooting the classic series from the 1980s. Successfully re-creating the magic, charm and adventure that made the original series so special for fans, old and new alike, have enjoyed reliving this nostalgic love letter. However, will the journey continue after "King's Quest Chapter 5: The Good Knight?" Or will this timeless story ultimately come to a final close?

According to iDigital Times, the developers of the reboot series, "The Odd Gentlemen," have officially announced the release date for "King's Quest Chapter 5: The Good Knight." The next chapter will follow suit on October 25 on all platforms; only one month after the release of Chapter 4. "King's Quest" fans should be excited and relieved to know that they will not have to wait long to unfold the next chapter of the story.

As reported by PC Gamer, the fifth chapter of the saga will be titled "The Good Knight." The basic premise of the chapter deals with a now elderly King Graham remembering his past journeys on his way to the throne. Matt Korba, the creative director of "King's Quest Chapter 5: The Good Knight," spoke in a press release recently and stated that it has been a surreal experience for him and his team of developers. Korba goes on to add that it is an extremely rare experience to cover a character's entire life in a single video game series.

So what happens to the Sierra Games-produced "King's Quest" series moving forward? "King's Quest Chapter 5: The Good Knight" will mark the final chapter in the series, with no continuations being planned. As Korba stated in the press release, "...as we approach the end, we are incredibly excited for players to experience the final pages of this vision of King Graham's journey."

"King's Quest Chapter 5: The Good Knight" will be available come October 25 to download. A physical copy of the game will also be available for purchase, with the complete collection of the King's Quest saga chapters 1-5. The physical version will be available for PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
