Sunless Skies is one of the best indie games to be released this year, and when we reviewed it back in Februrary we gave it a 9/10.
Now, the same amazing game is coming to consoles in the form of Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition, and it brings with it a bunch of new improvements and content.
Chris Gardiner, Narrative Director for Sunless Skies, had this to say about the Sovereign Edition on the official blog post that made the announcement.
“We’re overhauling the character progression user interface, and introducing a range of new Facets to define your captain’s past. Perhaps you lost your soul (and found it again), or attended a seance. Perhaps you have a hobby, or are close to rats, Devils, spies or Rubbery Men. Experienced captains will be able to continue to raise their stats even after reaching the level cap, extending the late game experience.”
The blog post also addresses a minor issue I had with the game: that stories and character dialogue would sometimes repeat over and over again especially when your crew was starving. Sovereign Edition will add new stories for this situation, and more probably.
You can read the whole blog post for yourself here.
You can also check out the official trailer for Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition below:
Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition is set for release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and the PC in the first half of 2020. No official release date has been announced yet.
Players who own the game on PC already will receive the Sovereign Edition update at no extra charge.
