2. Minimum Requirements


The minimum requirements for Skylight Freerange's PC version (currently unavailable) are as follows:


  • Graphics card capable of supporting Pixel Shader 2.0, Vertex Shader 2.0 and Shader Model 1.1

  • XNA Framework 3.1 (redistributable included with both demo and full game)

  • Minimum Screen Resolution of 1280x800

  • Windows XP/Vista/7 Operating System

  • .NET Framework 3.5 or higher

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 or Windows Vista Service Pack 1




3. Story


Skylight Freerange takes place in Canada in 2041, and focuses on the remains of the secret federal agency Severin, and the group's final, hidden chapter in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. You control the Ghosts, the department of Severin capable of infiltrating and combat among other things, as they try to put an end to the civil war started by their previous administration. The actions of your character, the Ghost Leader, will shape the storyline, and can cause the story to proceed in different ways.




4. Gameplay


The gameplay features:

  • Choose your path through the storyline with the character you create: Your actions in the main quest can lead to different storylines, quests, final battles and endings, while your choices in side quests can open up entirely different quests on completing them

  • Customize your characters and their weapons for numerous playstyles, including melee, long-range, stealth, traps and summoning, among others

  • Explore an open world, where dungeons can be explored for rare weapons and where order of completion for quests and social situations can change dialogue and cutscenes

  • Develop your character's life by getting them involved in various social circles and communities. Your actions with one group may cause you to be shunned, but you may also open up various rewards and benefits through your social interactions, including marriage, starting a business, going on survival skills campouts and more (most of this applies more towards PC version; Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita version have a social system altered to be more similar to Skylight Freerange 2: Gachduine)

  • Save files can be transferred from demo to full version for PC version only
