thatgamecompany, the award-winning studio behind Journey (2013 Game of the Year) and the highly-acclaimed Flower, has announced a new season and adventure for Sky: Children of the Light. Hot off the heels of the Season of Gratitude and Season of Lightseekers comes Sky’s third limited adventure arc in Season of Belonging. You can watch the trailer below.
The holiday-themed season circles the story of a family who are sadly separated in the sky, and hope to reunite in time to celebrate together. Players can anticipate helping these new characters and unlocking new gifts over the next seven weeks.
In Season of Belonging, you can team up to travel through six realms to solve the quests in order to uncover and reunite a family of the seven ancestors who have separated in the kingdom. You’ll discover the family’s origins and build friendships with each member.
You will unlock and learn six expressions from the family spirits, including Celebrate, LoopDance, Sparkler, Wise Stance, Don’t Go and Hair Tousle. Earn exotic new items to collect, such as: three new festive capes, guitar and ukulele instruments (two new music sheets), four masks, one pair of cozy pants, two new headwear, and an ultimate adventure season item.
The Hidden Forest and Vault of Knowledge have been expanded with new areas, they’ve added more Winged Light for increased player flight, and there are new kinds of Sky puzzles to solve. Also, look out for the “Days of Giving” event coming soon in the game.
Sky is free to start and currently available on the App Store, as well as on global pre-registration for Google Play. It was announced to be multi-format with Apple TV, macOS, PC and consoles to follow. All features of Season of Belonging can be activated for purchase at $9.99 and for gifting with the three-pack bundle at $14.99 within the Sky app.
Sky: Children of the Light is an ever-expanding “social adventure” world that will continue to evolve with new characters, adventures and collectibles. It is best described as a heartwarming experience designed for fans to share and play with friends and family, time and time again. The online series is highly accessible, beautifully-animated, and it marries a stunning soundtrack and emotionally-driven backstory to bring the world to life. Sky: Children of the Light is the first chapter in the Sky series, with more to follow in the future.
In Sky, we arrive as the Children of the Light, spreading hope through the desolate kingdom to return the fallen Stars to their constellations. Only by sharing light to awaken and redeem the perished ancestors and civilizations can the mysteries be uncovered, and the Stars be restored again. Hold hands to take flight as our adventure has just begun.
