Sky: Children Of The Light Is Now Available For Free On Switch eShop

Includes a main story arc and online play.

The team at thatgamecompany is renowned by many console players for PlayStation titles like Flower and Journey, but since setting out on their own they’ve been making a mark on smart devices with Sky: Children of the Light. It’s now available to download on the Switch eShop, and it’s free-to-play with a decent amount of content to get you started at no cost.

The Switch version includes a “free main story arc and offers up the ability for eight players to explore and play socially at any one time”, though as it’s free-to-play there are paid options for more content. For Switch owners there’ll be a Starter Pack at £28.99 (with regional variations), which includes “two new capes, a vessel flute, new hairstyle, 75 candles and an extra surprise”. Pleasingly, whether you’re planning to just try out the free content or pay for more there’ll be cross-play with Apple and Android players; mobile players will also be able to carry progress across to the Switch port.
