Astroneer 1.0 Lifts Off from Early Access Today on Steam, Xbox One
SEATTLE – Feb. 6, 2019 – Astroneer, the interplanetary survival sandbox from System Era Softworks enjoyed by more than 2 million spacefarers, lifts off from Steam Early Access as well as Xbox One Game Preview, and safely lands with the launch of 1.0.
Developer System Era Softworks is composed of AAA veterans reaching for the stars with their hopeful vision for the future of human space exploration. The team, which includes senior staff from Bungie, Ubisoft, Disney, Valve and many more, usher in a new era of intrepid interplanetary escapades with 1.0’s bountiful expansion of new content.
Adventurous travelers harness their ingenuity to thrive on seven uncharted planets, unraveling the mysteries of abandoned structures strewn across their surfaces. Excavate, elevate and terraform through vibrant terrain in whimsical worlds teeming with unfamiliar oddities. Exploration takes exciting turns as astronauts encounter mysterious structures and dangerous obstacles, then engineer new technology to light the way.
Additions to character customization empowers astronauts to show their own personal tastes as they distinguish themselves from friends in four-player co-op. The first major post-launch update will bring dedicated servers and cross-play, enabling adventurers to build their bases and embark on journeys together regardless of platform and doubling the maximum number of players to eight.
Brave a vast and charmingly stylized frontier with exciting new recipes to craft and tools to tinker with. Mold Astroneer’s colorful terrain and get creative with the minimalist landscape to shift mountains and unearth rare resources. Piece together new modules in fully customizable bases before packing up and shuttling off into an unknown sunset. Not even the sky is the limit as bold, fearless explorers embark on a futuristic journey to change the galaxy.
“We’ve been on this adventure with our community for over two years now and it’s thanks to them that we’ve been able to polish Astroneer’s terraforming, crafting, and multiplayer,” says System Era Softworks communications director Joe Tirado. “With 1.0, we’re bringing more content so our veteran explorers have as much to look forward to as those just blasting off with us at launch.”
Astroneer is currently available on Steam and Xbox One for $29.99. Astroneer supports the English, French, Italian, Spanish (Spain), Dutch, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese and Turkish languages.
