As promised, Sunless Skies: Sovereign Edition is now available to play on PC and consoles!
This is the game’s debut on PlayStation, Xbox and Switch, with many completely new features, fixes, and improvements. And if you already own Sunless Skies on PC, you can play it there now as a free update!
There are many, many changes, but here are a few highlights:
- Major changes to character progression. We’ve reworked the interface, and added new facets to define your captain – did you lose your soul (and find it again)? Do you have a special connection with spies, devils, talking rats, or Rubbery Men? And legendary captains can now continue to improve their ability even after reaching the cap of level 20.
- A reworked and expanded starvation system. As desperation grows, you can now attempt to eat an unprecedented selection of unwise, unpleasant, or tragic things.
- A new exotic engine. It’s very fast, but not very good at stopping…
- A complete rework of controller support and many improvements to interfaces, to make it as smooth and pleasant as possible on consoles.
There are literally hundreds of other improvements, bug fixes, and optimisations – you can read the full change log if you’re curious! And of course it includes everything we’ve added since the original launch in the Wayfarer, Vagabond, Horn, Hoarder and Urchin updates.
To mark the launch, we’ve partnered with Gametee to offer a High Wilderness Star Chart.
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank our excellent porting partners, BlitWorks, for doing such a fine job with the ports. And whether this will be your first visit, or a triumphant return, we warmly welcome you to the High Wilderness!
