Astroneer, the accessible interplanetary survival sandbox played by more than 2 million space explorers while in Early Access, will reshape the landscapes of Xbox One and Windows 10 when it officially launches on Feb. 6, 2019 with a solar system’s worth of new content.
Liftoff will debut a new exploration-focused adventure that will take you to seven brand new planets while facing challenges like dangerous flora, treacherous terrain and immense, mysterious structures. Increased character customization options empower every astronaut to showcase their personality as they explore new narrative elements. Dedicated servers will enable intrepid adventurers to build their bases asynchronously through Xbox One and PC cross-play, fulfilling the developer’s intended vision.
System Era Softworks is composed of senior AAA veterans from companies including Bungie, Ubisoft, Disney, Valve and many more. Through their collective vision of interplanetary exploration, the team has set out to develop an experience where creativity is the only limit.
Grab friends for online multiplayer and blast off to explore uncharted planets, unearth rare materials and unlock the mysteries of the universe. Reshape colorful terrain, molding the stylized minimalist landscape to create mountains or chasms all while immersed in the meditative sounds of the sci-fi synth soundtrack.
Gather resources to craft new tools and modules at fully customizable bases, then pack those bases onto vehicles and shuttles to fuel further forays into the unknown. Harness the ingenuity of an intrepid Astroneer to take on the final frontier as one of the forerunners of a new age of space expansion, propelling humanity into the future.
“Astroneer reflects on the legacy of human space exploration and imagines the future,” says System Era Softworks communications director Joe Tirado. “We want to inspire a sense of wonder and reverence for the beautiful universe we live in, while promoting ideals such as creativity, tackling adversity and outside-the-box thinking.”
Astroneer is currently available on Steam Early Access and Xbox One Game Preview for $19.99, but will rise to its final launch price of $29.99 on Nov. 16, 2018 and include a brand new “Retro” suit exclusively for Early Access supporters.
