Astroneer Announced

Developer System Era announces Astroneer, a voxel-powered game of interplanetary exploration coming to Windows PCs, though they are not yet committed to a release date. This reveal trailer offers a look, and you can keep up with the project on the official website and this blog. Here's word:

Astroneer, an upcoming PC game from developer System Era Softworks, places players in a 25th century gold rush where they explore the frontiers of outer space, risking their lives and resources in harsh environments for the chance of striking it rich. On this adventure, a player’s most useful tool is their ability to shape their world, altering the terrain and extracting valuable resources from planets, asteroids, and moons. Resources can be traded on the open market or crafted into new tools, vehicles, and modules to create everything from massive industrial bases to pop-up tents for overnight expeditions.

Environments are procedurally generated in a uniquely rendered voxel engine, featuring a textureless aesthetic that allows players to deform and shape the terrain as though it were made of Play-Doh. The expansive galaxy allows the player to explore a virtually infinite number of planets that are each unique, malleable, and traversable from pole to pole.

Astroneer is being assembled as a labor of love by a small team of veteran developers who have garnered experience at the likes of 343 Industries, Disney, Valve, and Ubisoft. For us, this game is a culmination of our deep passion and affection for the beauty of our universe. While we dream of space travel and colonization, it will be future generations who will finally realize that desire. We are creating Astroneer as a means to experience a piece of that journey ourselves and to inspire in others the wonderment of voyaging to the stars.
