Sky: Children of the Light is not quite the Journey sequel we’ve been looking for, but thatgamecompany is definitely taking us a bit closer to that destination when it finally hits PlayStation platforms on December 6th as a free to download title.
Offering gorgeous, stylish visuals and online crossplay with console and mobile platforms, one of the first events to take part in will be a virtual concert by musician AURORA on December 8th which will apparently connect 4,000 live players together. And for those who miss Journey as much as we do, they will be offering up a PlayStation exclusive Journey Pack for $24.99 that includes a bundle of Journey-inspired items such as a cape, hood and mask.
Check out the pair of trailers, screens and more below!
