The Evolution and Launch of Astroneer

The Evolution and Launch of Astroneer

System Era Softworks have announced that Astroneer will be released on Feb. 6, 2019 on Xbox and Windows 10 with an incredible video showing the evolution of the game, from it’s prototyping stage on towards the most recent patches.

I absolutely love this kind of stuff, and it’s great fun to not only see how things have changed over the game’s 4 year development history, but also to get a glimpse of how the design choices of the team have changed with time.


Explore and reshape distant worlds! Astroneer is set during the 25th century’s Intergalactic Age of Discovery, where Astroneers explore the frontiers of outer space, risking their lives in harsh environments to unearth rare discoveries and unlock the mysteries of the universe.

On this adventure, players can work together to build custom bases above or below ground, create vehicles to explore a vast solar system, and use terrain to create anything they can imagine. A player’s creativity and ingenuity are the key to seeking out and thriving while on exciting planetary adventures!

Astroneer is available now in Early Access on Steam.
