'Astroneer' Gets Nintendo Switch Release Date, Available For Pre-Order - Trailer

Astroneer places players in a 25th century gold rush where they explore the frontiers of outer space, risking their lives and resources in harsh environments for the chance of striking it rich.

On this adventure, a player’s most useful tool is their ability to shape their world, altering the terrain and extracting valuable resources from planets, asteroids, and moons. Resources can be traded on the open market or crafted into new tools, vehicles, and modules to create everything from massive industrial bases to pop-up tents for overnight expeditions.

Astroneer is a game about exploration and creativity. The worlds in Astroneer are diverse, each combining careful artistry and procedural generation to create unique and beautiful experiences. Yet, each world can be reshaped by your tools. The entire volume of the world can be dug, sculpted, or added to at your whim. Every cubic inch of every world is accessible to you. Excavate vast underground tunnels or create megaliths on the surface; the world is your Play-Doh.

Players can digitally pre-order starting today to ensure they receive exclusive in-game rewards on day one.

Developer System Era Softworks also announced that a physical edition will be available at a later date via Gearbox Publishing in both North America and Europe, with exclusive rewards.

The Nintendo Switch version of Astroneer is the complete experience, including the brand-new Xenobiology update that will introduce mysterious creatures and new adventures. Embark on a narrative focused mission all over the solar system to discover the secrets behind these curious cephalopods. The game has been thoroughly reworked to ensure a great performing experience on Nintendo Switch, with support for pro controllers and local Switch to Switch play.

The sudden development of technology for rapid space travel enables fast and inexpensive journeys to the stars. Exo Dynamics, the dominant conglomerate in the new field, has opened flights to daring citizens of Earth. Like the Yukon gold rush of old, waves of adventurers sign up to launch themselves into a new frontier, risking everything to seek their fortune in the far reaches of the galaxy. These are the Astroneers.

As an Astroneer, you must find a way to dig out a life on one of a multitude of harsh new worlds. Blast through the terrain to uncover precious artifacts and materials you can use to fuel your quest to become a wealthy baron in the stars. Along the way, discover oddities, raise questions, and uncover mysteries.

Perhaps not all is as it seems.
