After Sky: Children of the Light‘s Season of Enchantment ended on Sunday, Thatgamecompany has announced that the next season will be the summery-themed Season of Sanctuary. The game’s sixth season since release, the event will add a brand new area as Enchantment did with the Forgotten Ark.
The new season trailer shows a “hidden island”, with a similar aesthetic to the Daylight Prairie world. With a season emblem resembling a manta, the trailer also prominently features a pair of white mantas.
As the clouds part to reveal hues of emerald and sapphire, new spirits beckon you to join them for a relaxing retreat on a hidden island.

While pre-orders for the new season opened on Monday, a bug caused both the season pendant and the bonus candles to appear as items for the previous season. The pre-order feature has now been disabled until a fix can be applied, but TGC has promised those who already made the purchase that the items will be updated to Season of Sanctuary items.
Players in the beta have already got a look at some of the new season’s cosmetics, which include a new call, unique outfits, and extra accessories. All the cosmetics for the new season can be seen in this video for those who want to check them out ahead of time.
The Season of Sanctuary doesn’t have a release date yet beyond July, though it’s expected to drop early in the month. Sky: Children of the Light is free to play on iOS and Android devices, with a Nintendo Switch edition planned to launch next.
