Astroneer Video Game
- genre: Adventure
- developer: System Era Softworks
- publisher: System Era Softworks
- platform: PC, XONE
Astroneer for PC and XONE is a sandbox action-adventure game about discovering new planets. It is the first production by System Era Softworks.
Astroneer is set in the 25th century, when humanity rapidly expands its influence in the galaxy. The technology allowing for fast and cheap interstellar travel resulted in a situation bearing all the features of the new gold rush. Enterprising explorers set out to the very borders of the known space, risking their lives for a chance to earn a fortune. You play as one of them.
All planets and moons in the game are procedurally generated, and their surfaces are made of voxels. The astronaut you play as is equipped with tools allowing them to change the shape of the environment by e.g. digging holes in order to search for resources, artifacts, or shipwrecks.
The items and resources you gather can be sold or used to create new items thanks to the crafting system. It allows to create not only tools and vehicles, but also bases, from simple on-use structures to miniature towns.
The procedurally generated world has an open structure and you use spaceships to travel between the celestial bodies. Of course, you can modify and build those vehicles. Most of the in-game time, however, you spend on the surface of moons and planets, where, apart from exploring, you also discover the secrets of extinct civilizations and face many dangers. Each world varies in terms of gravity, resources, and threats.
Astroneer for PC and XONE features both a singleplayer mode and a multiplayer mode.
