2018’s Far: Lone Sails has a sequel and will arrive in just a few months. Far: Changing Tides made its debut at a PC game show. As the name implies, this time the player sails the sea, not the sand.
As a toe, you steer an abandoned ship across a flooded landscape looking for an answer about what happened to your home. Like your first game, a Jules Verne-style ship doubles as your home and can be upgraded to withstand heavy storms and other threats, just like your slap. You can also dig deeper in search of solutions for salvage, fuel, relics, and new types of obstacles.
“Changing Tides” maintains the lonely and meditative atmosphere of its predecessor. It extends to the soundtrack once again composed by Joel Schoch. Of course, fans of the first game can expect to grow up again with an attachment to their ship.
Far: Having enjoyed Lone Sails, the news of the sequel is a nice surprise. It wasn’t perfect, but it provided a memorable and novel experience that laid a great foundation for improving follow-up. As former GI editor Kyle Hilliard said in his review:
“Far: Lone Sails is a game that will remain in your mind even after seeing the credits. It’s a fascinating puzzle that brings a fascinating mystery to strange lands and brings it to players and their oversized mode of transportation Connect with relationships. Some areas were unsophisticated and some of the physics were felt here and there, but none of them stopped the story from fascinating me. “
Far: Changing Tides doesn’t have an exact release date, but Okomotive says it will be available in “late 2021” for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. I will.
