Approaching the one year anniversary of its PC launch, FAR: Lone Sails will launch on PS4 and Xbox One on April 2. In a world where the oceans are now deserts, and the skies are cloudy all day, FAR: Lone Sails is a pretty, chill side-scroller that I haven't been able to shake off my radar. Just the imagery of the run-aground freighters, tankers, and submarines that used to rule the shipping lanes is enough to have kept my curiosity piqued after all these months.
In FAR: Lone Sails you pilot a steam- and wind-powered land cruising vessel. It looks like an enormous Model A Ford with the sails of, like, a Samurai-era bannerman. The ship's energy level bobbles in the tank with an oily neon glow. You've got to fuel, maintain, and upgrade your vessel, and follow in the footsteps of a lost and gone forever (?) civilization.
It looks like the transition from mouse-and-keyboard to console controller should be pretty smooth. I'm looking forward to finally getting my salvaging hands on this one.
