Astroneer, a game recently announced to be coming to Xbox One, is a co-op exploration game by System Era that places you within the expansive and isolated atmosphere of outer space. Thanks to an organization by the name of Exo Dynamics and the rapid advancement of technology, you can now conduct interplanetary exploration with ease, allowing you to become an enterprising pioneer of space.
Explore and Gather Resources
In Astroneer, it’s up to you to make a habitable place out of one of the many planets you’ll find within its far-reaching universe. Explore the varied surfaces and atmospheres of planets. Scavenge for resources, unearth artifacts, and uncover many of the strange and infinitely interesting items hidden within the folds of planetary debris.
Cooperative Base Building and Industrialization
With up to four astroneers to a squadron, you and your friends can work together to form a base and begin a settlement. Be the first to traverse across the beautiful galactic horizons in rovers and jetpacks. Band together and reap the monetary benefits of early aerospace industrialization.
Procedurally Generated and Non-Linear Gameplay
The Astroneer universe is procedurally generated ensuring every planet, every adventure, and every player experience is unique. Combine this with non-linear gameplay to get a dynamic and smart experience every time you play.
Relaxing Ambient Music and Vibrant Pastel Landscapes
Enjoy the pastel colored landscapes in Astroneer to a trickling and interactive ambient soundtrack composed by Rutger Zuydervelt. The developers expressed that they wanted music that would match the game’s artistic aesthetic, opting for a minimalistic yet striking soundtrack that creates the perfect atmosphere.
