Far from Home have announced that their sci-fi survival game, Forever Skies, will move its Early Access launch from Winter 2022 into the first half of 2023.
After 80000+ people played the Forever Skies demo in the span of a week, the team received a wave of positive and constructive feedback which they want to implement now before the launch of Early Access.
An extensive post going into the details of what the team is adding and why can be found below. The post also has a collection of new screenshots highlighting some of these additions including the never-before-seen under-the-dust section for the first time as well as a look at the extensive airship building and customization.
In summary, five key areas are being expanded on top of additional features for Early Access.
- Fundamentals of under the dust gameplay
- Deeper location variety
- Fundamentals of airship damage and repair
- More airship customization
- The scientific approach to survival
“The scope of what we want the final game to be hasn’t changed much. But what we want to add now for the start of Early Access vs what we planned to add as later updates have shifted notably. We were floored by the level of praise and attention we received for our demo and so now we want to deliver more content right out of the gate. The team collectively decided they want to create a stronger Early Access first impression but to do this comfortably, we need more time – Andrzej Blumenfeld, Gameplay Lead, Far From Home
We know the first half of 2023 is a little vague to some, but that is all we have agreed even amongst ourselves. Our development team will decide the exact date when they feel everyone is happy with what we have vs us putting out some arbitrary date that they would need to chase. – Pawel Jawor, Brand Manager, Far From Home
A new extended Steam demo was also recently added back to Steam with the team adding various features the players asked for along with an extended 40-minute timer on the open-world exploration section.
