Gather in the Song of Season of AURORA

2022-10-13T00:46:37.925Z

Music echoes through the heart of the Sky experience. One voice calls to each Sky child in particular, past the ruins of Isle of Dawn and again beyond the storm of Eye of Eden. On October 17th, this voice returns with Season of AURORA. Journey through a story told in music and discover the song-filled memories of Spirits who carried hope through struggle and loss.

Sky’s newest Season features the acclaimed Norwegian singer known around the world for her hits such as “Runaway” and “Cure For Me,” and the ethereal vocals she lent to Frozen II’s “Into the Unknown.” Now AURORA returns to Sky once again, breathing characters and stories to life through her music.

Seek the four Seasonal Spirits who have gathered around the AURORA Season Guide in the Valley of Triumph’s Coliseum. Each brings a story written by AURORA, told through her voice in Seasonal Quests to weave the imagination of her best-known songs into the events that once unfolded in the realms. Complete these Seasonal Quests to reveal the colors and elements waiting to be restored and awaken a spirit of Light from the world’s distant past.

Alongside the story of the Season, offer Seasonal Candles to these four Spirits to receive themed items that represent them, including masks, capes, and music sheets featuring AURORA’s songs. Within the AURORA Guide Spirit’s Friendship Tree are other items especially designed for this Season, including music sheets, an outfit, and three extra emote expressions.

Ultimate Gifts require a Season Pass to unlock, but these additional items will become available as you progress through the Seasonal Quests and can be unlocked with Candles or Hearts—no Season Pass needed! This includes a specially themed mask and outfit from the song “Cure For Me” as well. These two items will be available after completing all Seasonal Quests until the end of the Season.

Each song through its quest will bring its color to the present-day world of Sky, and can be experienced multiple times by revisiting its starting locations in the levels. Season of AURORA debuts in the next 0.19.0 update, but much more is planned for the second half of the Season that will come in the 0.19.5 patch. Stay tuned for news about community events as well for everyone to take part in—follow us on Discord or our other social media channels to see our announcements in the coming weeks!

Seasonal content can be enjoyed by all players. Players with a Season Pass ($9.99, all prices USD) will also have the opportunity to unlock all items and Ultimate Gifts from the Season of AURORA Spirits’ Friendship Trees as well as the Ultimate Gifts offered by the Season Guide. The three-pack Gift Pack bundle will also be available for $19.99 and comes with two gift passes to give to friends within the game.

Passes become available for purchase when the Season begins at 00:00 on October 17 PDT (UTC -7), and all players with a Pass (whether purchased or gifted) receive 30 bonus Season Candles. Season of AURORA continues until 02:00 Monday January 2, 2023 PST (UTC -8).

Specially themed items created for this collaboration will also be offered as in-app purchases:

  • Runaway hairstyle: $2.99

  • Tiara We Can Touch head accessory: $4.99

  • Runaway outfit: $9.99

These will be available throughout the Season. We’re also working on a few more of these items for the second half of the Season coming in 0.19.5, which we’ll announce in the weeks to come as well! (Please note that since these are part of a limited collaboration, they are not scheduled to return in future years.)

Music has always helped to tell the story of Sky, and Season of AURORA will bring players even closer to the lives reflected in these stories. On October 17th, join others from across the world sharing these songs and memories as our newest adventure begins. See you in the skies!
