If you, and ideally a few friends, are intrigued by what the wonders of space have to offer, the newly announced Astroneer
looks to be an ideal title to check out from System Era Softworks. Gamers will explore space with fellow adventurers on the hunt for fortune and adventure. As an Astroneer, players will need to use the tools in their inventory to build bases, discover resources and also find exotic and mysterious artifacts.
Astroneer is a game about exploration and creativity. 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.
