Adventurers can outfit the enclave with sails to travel the winds, uncovering new territories and collecting resources, technologies, and equipment upgrades.

To cleanse the nature of dangerous fungi that contaminate flora and corrupt wildlife, they must free and heal the ecosystem from harm. Through progress on their expedition through the sky, players will uncover secrets of a lost civilization while discovering their origins by soaring to high altitudes in this mysterious realm.
