Loved FAR: Lone Sails? You’re going to be in for a treat later this year when FAR: Changing Tides releases on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC.
Delivering a second adventure in Okomotive’s post-apocalyptic world and unveiled by Frontier Foundry in partnership with Okomotive, the FAR universe will soon be expanding with the launch of FAR: Changing Tides on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
Swapping sand dunes for sea waves, FAR: Changing Tides expands on the inhospitable world created by developers, Okomotive, in their multi award-winning debut title, FAR: Lone Sails as players control Toe, a hero trapped in a drowned landscape with little chance of survival. Finding an abandoned ship, the journey to safety will take players across the horizon in a desperate bid for freedom as Toe seeks answers about what happened to their home.
Okomotive Lead Designer and Co-Founder, Don Schmocker, said, “The reception to FAR: Lone Sails was humbling, to know that people felt the same passion as we do about that world inspired us to continue to build on it with Changing Tides. We knew we wanted to tell a different, but complimentary tale, one which would be familiar to fans but fresh and exciting.”
With the same captivating art style, meditative side scrolling gameplay and haunting soundtrack from composer Joel Schoch as FAR: Lone Sails, the next entry into the world created by Okomotive will present fans with a fresh experience as they sail the high seas and scour the deepest ocean floors, later this year.
Frontier’s Head of Publishing, Zac Antonaci, said, “Signing Okomotive to Foundry was a wonderful moment for the team here as there is a huge amount of love for FAR: Lone Sails in the studio. What Don and the rest of the developers have created with Changing Tides is a fantastic continuation of their brand and we’re delighted to be involved in bringing this to fans, leveraging Frontier’s legacy as a developer and publisher.”
FAR: Changing Tides is currently scheduled for launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch in late 2021. We’ll be sure to bring you more as and when we can. For now though, hit up the trailer.
