Astroneer’s Exploration Update blasts off with jetpacks and glowsticks

We didn't travel the stars just to be stuck on solid ground. Gravity has kept a tight leash on chunky space adventure Astroneer for too long, but that stops now. Alien nasties can't you when you're 30 feet in the air, but gravity sure can. You packed enough fuel to get down safely, right? Last night's update for the adorably brutal space survivor is all…

Astroneer celebrates Apollo 11 with a time-limited lunar mission

To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar mission, space science 'em up Astroneer has turned its attention a little closer to home in a big update and time-limited event. Available now and running until August 31st, System Era Softworks are sending players to the barren moon of Desolo to search for the NASA lunar lander. Players who discover the old relic will…

Astroneer blasts off and out of early access today

Astroneer has finally escaped the gravitational pull of early access and launched in full. System Era Softworks's survival sandbox stands out from its often-bloody peers by being non-violent, cooperative and scientifically minded. Players aren't pioneers sent to tame foreign lands, but explorers, discovering new alien flora, fauna and environments. Launch has been accompanied by the game's biggest update yet, overhauling the entire seven-world solar system,…

Astroneer takes one giant leap out of early access on February 6th

Cute space survival sandbox Astroneer isn't far from the finish line, say developers System Era Softworks, it'll be bounding out of early access in just a few months - February 6th, specifically. The studio have some big plans for the release - the launch version will include a "new exploration-focused adventure", taking you to new planets full of interesting new things to poke around, or…

Astroneer parties like it’s Update 199

As the song goes, in space no-one can hear you party like it's one-hundred-and-ninety-nine. Which is a shame given update 199 for Astroneer [official site] contains a whole bundle of things. It's not content-heavy/content-at-all-y which I know is a source of frustration for people who are playing it through Early Access. For people like me who pop back in every few months it's fun to…

Astroneer devs prioritising dedicated servers

Astroneer's [official site] devs have published their game development roadmap. To be clear, there is no road and no map. It's actually a Trello board which explains they are prioritising things like dedicated servers for multiplayer and a new pass of the terrain in general. Fun fact: There is also no map and no road in Astroneer itself. Instead you drive your little rover over…

Astroneer makes explosive hydrazine change

I'm trying to do that thing of staying away from an Early Access game I'm really into so I don't burn out on it before it gets to actual release form. Subnautica is in that bucket, as is Astroneer [official site], although I'm sorely tempted by the latter now I'm writing about exploding hydrazine cans and looking at screenshots as I read the latest patch.…

Astroneer gets colourful with new painting tools

I did enjoy Pip's tour of her space base in Astroneer [official site] and I'm quite keen to see what she might do after the explore-a-craft-o-sandbox's recent bug early access update. It adds ways to paint terrain, see, along with new ways to shape it. And sure, I guess it overhauls the research system and fixes bugs and blah blah but the point is: spacepaints.…

Steam Charts: Do You Want Me To Dance For You?

It's the weekly Steam charts! These are the games which sold best on Steam last week. This week, it's the first true chart of 2017, as the last one covered the arse-end of 2016. All change, all change. I'm even going to do this one upside-down. New year, new rules! And I don't want to spoil the surprise right away.

Astroneer blasts into Early Access, December 16

Astroneer [official site] caught my eye at... GDC? Yes, it was GDC, earlier this year. It's a kind of planetary potterer where you bimble around doing space exploration and terrain reshaping as you search for crafting/trading resources. I remember I rather liked the polygonal art style and figured I'd probably end up with a bulging screenshot folder when I got to playing it. It looks…

Astroneer Early Access Touching Down In December

We have been cooing at Astroneer [official site] on and off for the past year, its colourful planets, bouncing astronauts and clicky base-building. And although we enjoyed footage of little men bounding across low-poly worlds together and carving out tunnels in the rock with some sort of futuristic matter displacer, we didn’t know exactly when it would come out. Well, we still don’t know. Not…

Astroneer Trailer Offers Details Of Planetary Survival

Curse my rush to share pretty things. It was only a few days ago that I wrote a post about the attractive GIFs of Astroneer [official site], a game about surviving on another planet by building a base and deforming terrain. Had I know that a trailer would arrive by the end of the week, I might have resisted. Watch it below -

Astroneer’s Planetary Survival Sure Looks Pretty

Sometimes game news is that a trailer came out. Sometimes game news is that a game came out. Sometimes game news is just look, look at it, look at the pretty thing, look, look it looks nice, I like how it looks. Hey look! It's Astroneer [Twitter page], a game about exploring big procedural planets with a dune buggy and a thing that deforms the…
