Frontier Foundry, the games imprint of Frontier Developments plc, today announces the release of FAR: Changing Tides. With FAR: Changing Tides, developer Okomotive is expanding the FAR universe, according to the associated press release. The game is available now for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and the Epic Store.

Back in 2018, Okomotive released the atmospheric indie adventure FAR: Lone Sails, at the time still in cooperation with publisher Mixtvision, which averages over 9,000 very positive reviews on Steam alone. While FAR: Lone Sails was about crossing a dry ocean, the new “Changing Tides” part is about a flooded landscape. Dubbed “Vehicle Adventure”, the game invites you to accompany a boy on his boat looking for a new home.

Today, Okimotive’s FAR universe expands with the release of FAR: Changing Tides. In the latest release from Frontier Foundry, players will traverse a flooded landscape on a meditative journey. The game is accompanied by a dynamic soundtrack, a painterly art style, and the added verticality provided by the immersive feature. As such, this post-apocalyptic adventure aims to provide an unforgettable experience for new players as well as those familiar with the critically acclaimed predecessor, ‘FAR: Lone Sails’.
