Lightyear Frontier is an open-world farming exploration game with crafting, resource management and base building, wrapped in a mystery-driven narrative with a cosmic country soundtrack.

Lightyear Frontier invites you to grow a cornucopia of cosmic resources and use your fresh harvest to improve your mech equipment. As you become a seasoned farmer with a souped-up mech, you’ll soon be able to grow rare plants and further explore previously inaccessible environments… and maybe uncover a mystery on this new planet. 

Blending farming features with crafting, resource management, and base building, Lightyear Frontier’s alien planet is yours to transform and mould. While you’ll be safe on this new planet (thanks to the advice of PIP-3R, your trusty scanner satellite), your crops will need all the help they can get: from dealing with the ever-changing weather to keeping the local wildlife away, you will need to take a few precautions to safeguard your home on this new frontier.

Play 1-4 players in online co-op, discover and grow alien plants, domesticate wildlife, endure the elements and build your new home away from home.

Make use of the environment to craft and build your farm.  Find and grow new resources on your own.  Cultivate your crops with farming mechanics like you’ve never seen before. Use your harvest to improve your mech and venture further into the planet’s exotic ecosystem.

FRAME BREAK and Amplifier Game Invest unveiled a new gameplay session for Lightyear Frontier.

The video reveals how up to four players can come together, build and explore in a faraway land of mystery and wonder.

Also revealed was the launch window for the game, set to hit Early Access in Early 2024 (originally planned for Spring 2023) on Xbox Series S/X and PC.

Key Features:

  • Venture into the unknown, discover ancient ruins, and uncover the secrets of your planet to decipher a message that has waited for eons to be heard.
  • Customize and improve your very own tractor mech with an assortment of unique mech parts to overcome the planet’s obstacles and maintain your exofarm.
