First-person post-apocalyptic survival game Forever Skies will launch in Early Access for PC via Steam on June 22, developer Far From Home announced. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions are planned for release alongside the game’s full launch.
The Early Access version of the game will ship with “plenty of mechanics and activities to play within a vast world ready to be explored.” It may lack some additional features at the start, such as cooperative play, which will be added “as quickly as possible” after launch. Additional modules to expand your airship and garden, locations to explore, and more are also planned via future updates. The game is expected to remain in Early Access for approximately one year.
