Having been playing this build of the game for the better part of a week, I can confidently say you should be getting pretty amped over this new entry in the open-world survival genre. Overnight the team at Far From Home -- a studio made up of industry veterans -- shared the PC specs for the game alongside a new Early Access launch trailer.
In addition to the above trailer, you'll also find a video below showcasing the ship customisation options and features. Towards the end of my early access with the game I really started to go crazy with my airship and lament only one thing -- I have not found a blueprint for a deck chair to sit out on my ludicrously-sized catwalk I have jutting out the front of my ship. If it doesn't exist, Far From Home, please make it so. The office chairs are inside only!
We'll have some in-depth impressions up before the weekend if you're unsure about taking to the poisoned skies from June 22 when the game hits Steam Early Access, but for now here's the official word on the game followed by the new airship customisation trailer.
Forever Skies is a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi survival game that has players exploring an ecologically ruined Earth. Players will navigate the world in a high-tech, mobile airship that they will build, upgrade and customise. On top of exploring the skies, players will also venture beneath the toxic dust that blankets the Earth’s surface. Scavenge for rare resources, defend yourself against viruses and modify pathogens to boost your body. Discover what became of humanity before its downfall and be wary of what mother nature has allowed to evolve in this new, toxic environment under the dust.
Since being made playable with a public demo back in October 2022, the game has expanded immensely with the team adding new locations, revamped survival mechanics, multiple customisation options items and much more for the start of Early Access.
This is however only the start of the team’s journey and along the way the team will be adding up to 4-player coop, additional story chapters, more exploratory locations and location variants, more airship construction modules and equipment, additional artifacts and decorative elements, threats above the dust and combat in the under the dust locations. These additions will run in tandem with updates steered by what the game’s community will ask for.
Forever Skies is releasing on Steam Early Access and is also being developed for current gen consoles.
