Developer Okomotive and publisher Frontier Foundry have announced that puzzle adventure FAR: Changing Tides will launch on consoles and PC this March.
The game’s a sequel to 2018 adventure FAR: Lone Sails, but swaps out the dusty desert for the stormy seas. You’ll play as Toe, a boy who awakens to find himself alone in a flooded world. You’ll have to traverse the ruins of Toe’s former home, but luckily you do happen to have a ship made of scrap to help you navigate the hostile waters.
There’ll be environmental dangers and puzzles to overcome, and you’ll be responsible for all the sailing, including raising the mast and angling the sails. On top of this, you’ll also have to keep your vessel in ship-shape (pun intended.) You’ll do this by unlocking new parts, fixing any faults and searching the soggy wastes for more parts and fuel.
In addition, the game’s soundtrack will be dynamic and react to your actions in the game. So expect great crescendos when things start getting dicey, but mellow calm sounds when you get a moment’s peace. To illustrate this, Okomotive has also released a lo-fi ‘soundwave’ video to accompany the trailer. Lovely.
Check out both videos for yourself down below. FAR: Changing Tides arrives on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on March 1. The game will also be available from Day One via Xbox Game Pass.
