Ever wanted to live the carefree life of a sky pirate? We did, ever since playing Final Fantasy XII, although that game is less about sky piracy than it is about epic, world-spanning melodrama. Black Skylands, which is currently in Early Access on Steam but is coming to PS5 and PS4 in the summer, looks like it might do a much better job of letting us live out that dream.

Set in a sprawling open world above, engage other airships as you explore the skies. You can disembark on floating islands and engage local wildlife with fully customisable firearms. It even has sidequests to undertake and secrets to uncover, which should keep you busy in between expeditions.

What do you think of Black Skylands? Let us know in the comments section below.
