New Content Available October 16th on Steam

Forever Skies is getting a major content update that makes its toxic, post-apocalyptic world, even more dangerous.

Forever Skies is centered around scientists on a one-way mission to a hostile, ecologically ruined Earth, looking for a cure to a viral infection that has hit the last remnants of humanity who fled into orbit.

The new update focuses on expanding gameplay around researching and dealing with viral threats that have evolved on Earth. These threats also come with reserachable cures and counter-measures. Gameplay balances have also been introduced to make dealing with these threats more accessible and part of the main gameplay loop. New content and changes from the Viral Evolution Update include:

New Poisonous Creatures

  • 4 Advanced Viruses
  • New Crafting Materials
  • Enhanced Viral Cures
  • New Story Missions
  • New Location: Infected Greenhouse Tower
  • New Medical Boosters
  • Medication Station Device
  • Immunity System Overhaul
  • Multiple Gameplay Balances
  • Additional bugfixes and QOL changes

These new features have been built alongside player feedback as the game has gained a strong community around it since launching in Early Access.

The “Viral Evolution Update” launches publicly on Monday, October 16th at 7:00 pm CET / 10:00 am PDT via Steam along with a 20% discount.
