Sunless Skies: ‘Eleutheria’ region goes live today

Failbetter Games have today released the third region into their gothic horror RPG, Sunless Skies. The release is accompanied by a brand new trailer.

Sunless Skies was successfully Kickstarted in 2017 and has been in Early Access since August 2018. It’s available on Steam and GOG for PC, Mac and Linux. It was recently nominated for a Develop Award for Writing or Use of Narrative, which is the third nomination for Failbetter Games in that category.

Feedback from Early Access players and streamers has shaped development throughout, and Sunless Skies will now leave Early Access in January 2019.

“We’re very happy with how Eleutheria has turned out, and we think it’s important to bring the Reach up to the same standard,” says Deputy CEO Adam Myers.

“As the central region, you spend a lot of time there, so we really want to ensure the atmosphere, and the quality, variety and frequency of the experiences there reflect the lessons we’ve learned since. We also want to revisit some of the survival mechanics, which in their current form don’t always shape the experience in the ways we’d like.”

Players can expect an updated roadmap to launch on www.failbettergames.com soon.
