Developer Failbetter Games and publisher Digerati have announced that Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch between Q1 and Q2 2020. In January of this year, the game had been released for PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam. It was also announced that Sunless Sea: Zubmariner, which already released on PlayStation 4, will be coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in late 2020. Nephilim Game Studios have been tasked to handle the console ports.

Have you ever wanted to sail the stars? Betray your queen? How about murder a sun? This may be the game for you. Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition is a horror RPG that focuses on exploration and fascinating storytelling. You’ll have to get your star-faring engines ready as you traverse through the expanse filled with hostile factions, lurking deities, vast forbidden knowledge, endless amounts of fortune, and even some fates that are worse than death.

You will be able to explore four large regions, each one different from the last. Learn what’s going on in the mysterious Blue Kingdom; discover what secrets are hidden within the pagan midnight expanse; have your eyes captivated by the celestial wilderness, and test your grit in the impossible industrial empire. This is a narrative-heavy RPG that is set within the Fallen London universe. Fans who have enjoyed this universe will find themselves learning more and recognizing some aspects of it, while newcomers will find it easy to jump in and understand the new world they’ve entered.

Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition allows you to select who you want to be a part of your crew, thus solidifying your fate. You’ll be able to witness your captain’s skills and history, which will be changed by the world and the world changed by him. You can choose if you want to fight or run from various intergalactic threats. Dangerous entities lurk in the skies, beings such as sky beast, enemy ships, and you’ll have to balance between fuel, supplies, and hunger. It’s your job to manage it all and live to fly another day. The developers have stated that there are over 800,000+ words of intertwining narratives. The writing is so rich that the developers claim it’s unlike any other game available.

I’ve never played one of these games before, but this one definitely looks to be quite the experience. I’ll definitely keep my eye on this one.
