Polish Studio, Far From Home (not to be confused with the Spider-Man movie) opened its doors two years ago and announced they were working on a “next-gen” AA+ game under the codename “Project Oxygen“. Fast forward two years and “next-gen” is now “now-gen”, even if most media still call it that and Far From Home has announced that Project Oxygen is now called Forever Skies – an ambitious new survival game set on a ruined planet Earth.
According to Far From Home, Forever Skies takes place on Earth a few years after the world collapsed due to a massive climate disaster. The game is expected to release in early access on PC this year and PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in the distant future.
While details aren’t aplenty for Forever Skies, we do know that the game is a mixture of Subnautica and Fallout. The tease trailer shows off a crumbled planet as the player explores the ruins from above. He can seemingly fly through the air using a giant balloon-like ship and dock it near buildings to explore them.
The world is also inhabited by poisonous clouds which makes it impossible to search the ground for resources. This airship not only acts as your means of transport but also your base. You can build new tech inside of it and craft new items. The game also features combat between whatever deadly creatures live on the ground.
Far From Home is comprised of some well-known industry developers. The team is built of a group of 23 devs who worked on games such as Dead Island, Divinity: Original Sin, Dying Light, The Medium and more.
Take a look at the trailer below. You can also visit the Steam page to add the game to your wishlist.
Welcome to Forever Skies! You are alone scientist returning to Earth long after a global ecological catastrophe destroyed the planet. Above the toxic clouds are the remnants of humanity’s last stand. Build, expand and control a high-tech airship that will act as your transport, shelter, laboratory and workshop for researching mysterious substances and crafting tools for survival. Scavenge, find ways of obtaining food and resources, and explore the ruins above and below the dust layer which now shrouds the Earth’s surface. Why is the dust there? What is it exactly? And perhaps more importantly, what lies beneath it?
