Sunless Skies adventure RPG Albion update is now live for Linux, Mac and Windows. Which is the follow-up to indie hit Sunless Sea. Now adding a second region to its Early Access version.
Also this release is accompanied by a brand new trailer below. This illustrates the new region of Albion.
So set a course for the stars in your steam locomotive. Losing yourself in a changing universe where even time can be bought. Sunless Skies is an epic, Gothic space adventure. While told through “the most delicious words in all of gaming” and lush 2.5D art.
It is the dawn of the 20th century, and the British Empire has taken to the heavens. So the stars are alive. They are the Judgements: vast intelligences that govern all things. But they are also dying. One by one, something is snuffing them out. While leaving their thrones…empty.
Sunless Skies RPG Albion Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows)
Narrative Director Chris Gardiner says, “Albion is the heart of the British Empire’s territory in the High Wilderness. So the only place in the heavens you can reliably get a decent cup of tea. Its hub is London – your actual Victorian London. Which also has been flung into space by Her Majesty Queen Victoria. She rules it from the Throne of Hours. Which allows her some dominion over time itself. We’re excited to get to Albion and dig into the engines of the Empire and all its dirty secrets.”
“Albion includes writing by Failbetter collaborators Cassandra Khaw, Meg Jayanth, Harry Tuffs and Richard Cobbett. Expect to visit the Avid Horizon (the door through which Londoners entered the sky; now solemnly closed), the Clockwork Sun (greatest marvel of British Engineering), and Worlebury-juxta-Mare (a pleasant town on a sea of mist that definitely doesn’t squirm with noisome horrors).”
“This is the biggest change that will happen to the game during Early Access. Since this additional region brings the experience on leaps and bounds towards our final vision for the game.”
The game will leave Early Access and GOG Games in Development in late September 2018.
After this update, the game will also include roughly half of the stories and places. While you will get to visit them all in the finished version. Albion follows recent additions to the Early Access experience. This includes controller support and also improvements to movement and combat.
