Astroneer launched in Xbox Game Preview many months ago, and has since received a steady stream of updates. While many of them have introduced important features, gamers have been clamoring for the actual release. Luckily, the game will exit the program before you know it.
Today, developer System Era announced that "Astroneer 1.0" should launch on February 6, 2019. The team said, "The 1.0 update will debut a new exploration-focused adventure that will take you to seven brand new planets while facing challenges like dangerous flora, treacherous terrain and immense, mysterious structures."
The game was originally supposed to launch next month, but has been pushed back. The studio added, "Although we originally were slated to release in December, we made the tough decision to add six weeks to production to make sure we had adequate time to fix bugs and make sure performance met our standards! We can't wait to get the full game into your hands, but also want to ensure that experience is an amazing one that feels like a polished game."
Hopefully the move to February will be enough to polish up the experience. In Astroneer, you land on procedurally-generated alien worlds and craft all sorts of crazy facilities and vehicles in fully deformable terrain. Unlike traditional survival games, the focus here is on building and it's quite easy to acquire resources.
