Astroneer Now in Xbox Game Preview Program
Astroneer has taken off form the launch pad and into Game Preview for the Xbox One and Windows Store.! Delivering on these platforms in a very short time with our very small team has been a hugely ambitious feat for those developing it. It was not originally built for the Xbox, but they saw the need for a game like this and have released the game as they continue to work on it.
Astroneer is a game about independent space explorers prospecting the stars for fortune and glory. This is a game about discovery and mystery, as you uncover rare artifacts and the resources you need to find, on vast worlds where every cubic inch of space can be explored. It’s a game about creativity, as you use your tools to dig, build, sculpt, and shape the very ground to serve your needs, whether utilitarian or aesthetic. It’s a game about solitude, as you enjoy the beauty of your surroundings as you might on a long hike or camping trip. It’s also a game about cooperation, as you invite your friends to share the experience with you in multiplayer co-op.
The dev-team has stated that the game is in preview, so it is incomplete, after all. With that in mind you can expect glitches. Lots of glitches. They have worked hard to ensure a stable experience without game-breaking bugs, but there definitely will be some they haven’t caught, along with many minor issues. Expect to see some incomplete content. The very first alpha release does not have the complete Astroneer experience that the 1.0 game will have, but it does have the building blocks, the scaffolding, and the essential nature of the gameplay that we want your feedback on. Expect that we might put out an update with changes so drastic that old saves could become incompatible.
