Sunless Skies’ enhanced Sovereign Edition out next month on PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch

Failbetter Games’ superb interstellar narrative adventure Sunless Skies is finally coming to consoles next month, on 19th May, in the guise of the much-enhanced Sovereign Edition – which will arrive as a free update for existing PC players at the same time.
