Delightful new cozy MMO launching on PC in April!

The warmly inviting MMO developed by the creators of Journey, Sky: Children of the Light, now has an official release date for PC.

It has been available in open beta since 2019, initially on mobile devices and later on consoles, but it hadn’t made its way to PC until now—despite the
“To be announced” message on the Steam page for the past year. Similar to Thatgamecompany’s other emotionally engaging flying adventure,
many have been eagerly awaiting its arrival on PC, and it seems the wait will soon be over. Sky will be launching as a free-to-play game on Steam on April 10.

Sky is among the cozy games that have been eagerly looked forward to this year because, confidentially, it has already been enjoyed on the Nintendo Switch for quite some time. It draws heavily from the success of Thatgamecompany’s acclaimed title, Journey, featuring flying exploration,
a captivating soundtrack, a subtle multiplayer experience, and enjoyable sand surfing. It offers a plethora of puzzles, secrets, and platforming challenges to discover, as well as ethereal spirits to befriend.
Additionally, similar to the meta-progression in subsequent playthroughs of Journey, Sky incorporates an ascendancy system that encourages continued engagement beyond the initial experience.

Initially, there were reservations about the idea of a live service version of Journey, but those concerns were unfounded. Thatgamecompany truly captured the essence of flight and exploration without overwhelming players with unnecessary MMO elements. While there are cosmetic items available for purchase, as well as premium currency and season passes, they haven’t detracted from the enjoyment of the game or deterred players from playing. Despite initially thinking that a Journey-inspired MMO wouldn’t hold interest, players have found themselves continuously engrossed in unlocking rewards for each spirit and spending countless hours immersed in the world of Sky.

For those eager to dive in, Sky actually offered a PC demo during the Steam Next Fest last October, which is still available for play. Although the demo’s graphical features are somewhat limited and it is recommended to use a gamepad, the transition to PC has been seamless overall.

In summary, it is encouraged for anyone with fond memories of Journey to set aside any apprehensions about live service games and give Sky a try.
It will be available on Steam starting April 10, with Thatgamecompany announcing various cosmetic purchases and in-game events to coincide with the Steam launch.
