A new studio, Far From Home, have just emerged from the shadows and revealed their first game is in production under the code-name “Project Oxygen”. It’s expected to release on Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5 and PC, and when it does, you’ll be stepping out into a poisonous Earth.

While specific details of their first game, currently known as “Project Oxygen”, are still being kept under wraps, some elements have seen the light. Players will embody a lone scientist, exploring an ecologically ruined and evolved Earth after humanity failed to fight off their own demise. In a desperate bid to survive, people created monstrous, makeshift towers to rise above the inhospitable layer of toxic fumes. From here they would rebuild society, create a staging base for research and try to undo the disaster unfolding below. Inevitably, they failed.

Now, hundreds of years later a vicious and newly evolved ecosystem lives and flourishes in the toxic dust covering the Earth, while the empty towers of humanity’s last stand crumble above. To allow for a deeper immersion in this unique world, the game will place you in first person perspective and be built around a strong survival style game loop; one that will require regular ventures, taking you deep into the dangerous unknown.

Exploration, survival and success is to be tied to each player’s technologically advanced zeppelin air base that they will be able to pilot, upgrade and customise along the way. This zeppelin is vitally important, acting as the player’s main lifeline and refuge against the inhospitable world raging below and around them. It’s essentially a mobile air base that will act as your everything – transport, life support, storage, research laboratory, shelter and escape. 

The Far From Home crew each come from various corners of the AAA and indie game development world, having notably worked on titles such as Dying Light, Dying Light 2, Dead Island, The Medium, Chernobylite and Divinity Original Sin 1 and 2. “Project Oxygen” is being built in Unreal Engine and is currently intended for Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5 and PC. The game will be a single-player experience, with a co-op mode incorporated at a later stage. To put these ambitions into motion though, it’s going to take a huge effort by Far From Home and a big investment, so keep an eye out for future updates during its development.

Been gaming casually since the SNES as a youngster but found my true passion for games on the Playstation 1 (the forbidden word ooo). My addiction grew to its pinnacle with the purchase of an Xbox 360 & Xbox Live Service. A recovering GS hunter that will still play literally any game.
