Far From Home, a new studio headquartered in Wroclaw, Poland whose staff has previously worked on the Dying Light series, Outriders, and more, has announced Forever Skies, an action survival game for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC. It will launch first in Early Access for PC via Steam in 2022.
The Early Access version will feature “plenty of mechanics and activities to play within a vast world ready to be explored.” It will lack some features at launch, including four-player cooperative play, but those will be added “as quickly as possible.” The Early Access version currently offers “around 30 hours” of gameplay. The version 1.0 launch is planed for about a year after its Early Access launch.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Build and Control Your Airship
You will build and customize a high-tech airship. It will be your home, workshop, laboratory and more while flying above the surface of Earth. Control and steer it towards the ruins of our civilization and mysterious anomalies. Manage your airship hull and its integrity. Extract and gather resources to improve your airship and make it uniquely yours.
Utilize Science to Survive
Your scientific know-how will allow you to build and operate different machines. Analyze scanned items and reverse engineer lost technology. Research new ways of obtaining food and resources, discover new tools, and increase the chance of your survival.
Scavenge Ruined Skies
Explore and extract resources from the ruins that were built up high to escape the dust. Surrounded by drifting debris caused by a strange anomaly, harvest it into raw materials to help you survive. Explore and discover the remains of our civilization. Find out what happened and why Earth evolved to a place where we lost control of our previous position at the top. Discover secrets of our past.
Descend Below the Dust
After descending below the dust, you will discover a strange new world, the planet’s surface that changed in our absence. Face evolved fauna and flora and hunt for viral pathogens to cure a mysterious illness threatening your family.
Return to Earth
Forever Skies is an action survival game taking place on Earth, which was devastated by a global ecological disaster. This event caused the surface of the planet to be covered in a colossal layer of toxic dust. You’re returning to our planet hundreds of years later—will you recognize our world?
