In Far: Changing Tides, players control a hero who's trapped in a drowned landscape. Find an abandoned ship and journey to safety while seeking answers about what happened to their home.

Swapping sand dunes for sea waves, Far: Changing Tides expands on the inhospitable world created by developers, Okomotive, in their multi award-winning debut title, Far: Lone Sails. Players control Toe, a hero trapped in a drowned landscape with little chance of survival.

Finding an abandoned ship, the journey to safety will take players across the horizon in a desperate bid for freedom as Toe seeks answers about what happened to their home.

With the same captivating art style, meditative side-scrolling gameplay and haunting soundtrack from composer Joel Schoch as Far: Lone Sails, the next entry into the world created by Okomotive will present fans with a fresh experience as they sail the high seas and scour the deepest ocean floors.

Frontier Foundry announced the launch date for Far: Changing Tides is due to launch on 1st March, 2022.

Pre-orders have opened for Playstation, PC (Steam / Epic Gamers Store) , including Xbox, where the game will hit GamePass, day one.

Nintendo Switch pre-orders will be available in February.

To celebrate this, two new lo-fi soundtrack videos, Soundwaves, have been created using in-game assets. Across a two-hour runtime, these meditative videos invite listeners to lose themselves in the world created by Okomotive, from the gentle lapping of the waves to the rhythmic thump of the mighty engine that powers the ramshackle vehicle across a flooded world. Anyone who needs to relax and help ease into 2022, enjoy the first Soundwaves - "Above".

Key Features:

Carry their memories and don't give up hope.
    Captain Your Ship: Experience the thrill of captaining a unique seafaring vessel with a mind of its own. More than a ship, this is a friend. Together you'll brave high seas, navigate intense storms, and plumb the perils of a briny deep, growing as an inseparable partnership. Along the way you'll need to keep things functioning by unlocking parts and fixing faults. The farther you travel, the more you'll learn about your ship's fascinating complexities.
  • A Captivating World: Contend with both the fantastical and familiar in a richly detailed environment to charm and challenge. From bleak shorelines lapped by tides, to desolate basins in flooded forest valleys, to submerged enclaves frozen in time, each lovingly hand-painted location tells its own incredible story.

Set against exquisite and elegant scenery, and scored by a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack, this game transcends language to deliver an enthralling, warm-hearted, life-affirming experience that will stay with you.

Like the critically acclaimed first game, it encompasses ecstatic highs, mournful lows, and great mysteries to uncover. At the center of this evocative and poetic journey is the unforgettable tale of a boy and his ship, searching the world for answers.
