SKY: CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT

 

 

Following the honor as Apple’s ‘iPhone Game of the Year’ and winning Mobile Game Awards’s ‘People’s Choice Award’, thatgamecompany kicks off 2020 in Sky with the unveiling of a new adventure season and in-game events that celebrate the best in winter season memories!

 

SEASON OF RHYTHM (Available Now!)

To ring in a new year, fans will be delighted by the release of the ‘Season of Rhythm’ narrative arc and mini in-game special events that dovetail the Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day.

 

The ice-themed season sees a traveling troupe of performers accidentally disbanded across the kingdom. Players need to team up with others to bring the troupe back together in time during this ten-week bumper season.
  • Explore through the kingdom’s six realms and tackle each quest to redeem this season’s visiting spirit ancestors and their memories. Can you bring the troupe together in time?

  • Based on a past limited season arc, this refreshed adventure will bring a mix of new and improved returning collectibles. Be sure to build friendships with the gang to collect: two winter capes, four masks, two new musical instruments (with three new music sheets), four pants, four hairstyles and the seasonal pendant.
  • Receive and learn six new expressions from the performers, such as: Welcome, Dance, Kiss, Juggle, Respect and Think. 
  • RARE SPIRITS: Ancestors of seasons past will now travel briefly back in the kingdom, offering players the occasion to discover them, build friendships and unlock items.
  • The ‘Home’ area has a snowy makeover and a fun-filled mini ice rink to skate around with friends.
  • Be sure to catch the special Lunar New Year event on January 24th-27th.
  • Functional improvements: Portals in social areas, Player checkpoints are situated at the beginning of each realm, Teleport button added, etc.  
  • Clearer directional flow for new players in the Isle realm.

Sky is free-to-start and currently available on the App Store (http://bit.ly/PlaySkyiOS), as well as on global pre-registration for Google Play (http://bit.ly/PreregisterSky). Look out for more multi-format release news from Sky (Apple TV, macOS, PC and Console) in the near future.

 

All features of 'Season of Rhythm' can be activated for purchase at US$9.99, or as a bundle for you and two additional friends for US$19.99 within the Sky app.
