Black Skylands was a nice shock from IGN’s Summer season of Gaming showcase. It is a sandbox sim the place you construct and customise an airship and use it to discover an enormous open world, construct skybases, and craft new weapons. It jogs my memory a little bit of video games like Terraria, solely with a top-down view and not less than 200 % extra sky pirates.
The brand new gameplay trailer supplies a pleasant overview. The concept, it appears, is that you simply use an airship to find and discover completely different floating islands stuffed with nasty monsters after which use an arsenal of weapons to blow them up so you’ll be able to pilfer the island’s sources and use them to broaden your personal sky base. There’s even a grappling hook you should use to tug enemies out into the open sky to drop them into the abyss under.
