Astroneer is a space sandbox exploration game where players and friends land in a solar system with the task of surviving in the uncharted frontiers of space. 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 thriving on exciting planetary adventures!
Today, Astroneer is releasing its 1.0 version of the game after two years in Xbox Game Preview, with a completely new solar system, dozens of new items to craft, and a new mystery to unravel that will take players to all of the new planets!
Deform Entire Worlds
In Astroneer, players use their terrain tool to dig, collect, shape, and build anything they wish. Use this ability to dig to the center of the planet, build a ramp into the sky, or make megaliths just by using terrain! This tool is also the primary way Astroneers gather minerals to craft and upgrade while on their adventure.
Fully Traversable Planets
Astroneer’s vast solar system includes seven planets that players can travel between and explore every inch of, from the entire spherical surface, through treacherous layers of caves, all the way down to their mysterious cores. Each of those planets has unique and challenging surface and cave biomes that offer a multitude of challenges for players on their journey.
Craft & Customize
Items that Astroneers craft and find in the world can be snapped and connected together to create unique combinations for any situation. Customize and decorate your bases, vehicles, and Astroneer. Astroneer 1.0 includes six brand new suits that players can unlock, as well as unique emotes and palettes, all earnable just by playing the game.
Better with Space Friends
Surviving in space is better together! Group up with three other players and work together to create massive industrial bases or invent fun games in the extensive sandbox. Also, as an Xbox Play Anywhere title, players can cross-play with friends on Xbox or Windows 10!
