An open-world adventure game from Prideful Sloth, a team made up of developers who previously worked on franchises like Batman: Arkham and The Elder Scrolls, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles is releasing on July 18 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
Taking you through eight environments of Gemea, Yonder allows you to farm, fish, craft, cook, brew, and more as you grow relationships with the locals and help save the island from an encroaching darkness. The description adds:
Developed by Prideful Sloth, a veteran team of former Rocksteady developers and an Activision producer, Yonder’s journey will follow a youth shipwrecked on the vibrant shores of Gemea, an expansive locale with eight different environments. Each location will offer its own wildlife and ecosystem, ranging from sunny sandy beaches to rolling grassy plains and steep snow-capped mountains.
Despite its lush climates, the isle and its kind-hearted inhabitants are enshrouded by an evil fog slowly destroying paradise. By supporting residents through talents including fishing, farming, crafting, brewing, and cooking, adventurers will build relationships with the locals and earn help with their journey to restore Gemea.
As the stranded protagonist traverses the island and contributes to its communities through quests, they will uncover Gemea’s secrets and become its champion. The hero will work with citizens to save the land and its people, while also uncovering their own mysterious past.
The European PlayStation Store reveals that Yonder will cost £18.99 (likely between $20 and $30 USD), and any PlayStation Plus member in Europe who pre-orders Yonder will save 20%.
