Astroneer's Rover Update Improves Vehicle Functionality

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
Astroneer's Rover Update is now live. As the name would imply, the addition of the small rover vehicle is the highlight of the new patch. With the launch of a new vehicle, it also made sense for developer System Era Softworks to overhaul the vehicle steering system in the new update.


There have also been performance improvements to the Play Anywhere title on both Xbox One and Windows 10, "particularly targeting very large save files and multiplayer games." According to the developer, the improvements should be especially noticeable for Xbox One players. Xbox One X and Xbox One S players can now also enjoy Astroneer in HDR.

There are a number of other fixes and changes, which are best viewed through the official patch notes.

The Rover Update is live now for all versions of Astroneer.
