The list for co-op games on Xbox One is growing everyday and in the last days of this year we’ll see another title added to the growing list. The team behind this game, System Era Softworks, are incredibly excited to announce that Astroneer will be released via Xbox Game Preview for Xbox One and Windows 10 in December of this year.
Astroneer is a game about wonder. Humanity has recently gained the ability to travel between the stars, prompting a gold rush of sorts in space. You play an Astroneer: a near-future prospector seeking fortune and adventure, deposited on far-flung worlds by your enigmatic outfitting company. Astroneers must use the tools available to them to build thriving bases, discover valuable resources, and uncover exotic and mysterious artifacts. The worlds in Astroneer are diverse, each combining careful artistry and procedural generation to create unique and beautiful experiences. Yet, each world can be reshaped by your tools. The entire volume of the world can be dug, sculpted, or added to at your whim. Every cubic inch of every world is accessible to you. Excavate vast underground tunnels or create megaliths on the surface; the world is your Play-Doh.
Astroneer is a game about cooperation. The game supports online co-op for up to four players, and exploring and sculpting the worlds with friends is an experience we’re absolutely committed to. We can’t wait to see what kinds of incredible creations gamers will make, especially with the help of their friends. There’s something special about playing the game in the living room and we’re happy to capture that magic. We’re so excited to bring Astroneer to the Xbox One. The Xbox Game Preview program lets us get our game in the hands of fans while we’re still in the early stages of development, giving you the opportunity to tell us what you think and watch the evolution of Astroneer over the coming year.
Stay tuned on Twitter at @astroneergame, or the Astroneer blog, and get ready for launch in December!
