FAR: Lone Sails

The haunting vehicle-based sidescroller FAR: Lone Sails is driving on to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 2.

The game’s publisher, Mixtvision, made the announcement alongside the launch of a new trailer (embedded below) highlighting some of the accolades the title has received.

In FAR: Lone Sails, players take the role of the pilot of a steampunk ship/train hybrid as they traverse a post-apocalyptic landscape. The journey is a meditative one without enemies, though players must still balance the necessities of driving the unique vessel.

FAR: Lone Sails launched on PC in May last year and has acquired a Metacritic average of 80. The title began life as a bachelor’s thesis before being expanded into a full game, in part because of the remarkable reception it received.

The game is now available for preorder on both PS4 and Xbox One.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

Published

 on

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain ability by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
