Astroneer is an open-world game about exploring some of the coolest-looking low-polygon planets you’ve ever seen. It turned heads at PAX East in Boston, where we spoke to the game’s ex-AAA developers at System Era and secured some direct feed footage. Enjoy what may be the best-looking gaming footage you see today.


The video shows the PAX East demo build, which focused on single player exploration, but the game will also support multiplayer. As you’ll see, it’s not a very violent game. The challenge is more about finding resources to survive and braving violent storms than it is about fighting enemy aliens.

Astroneer will be out on Steam Early Access in late summer or early fall. It may hit other platforms beyond that. Between this and No Man’s Sky... what a year for big, beautiful space games. Please be fun!

Editor-in-Chief. Playing: AC Odyssey (need to get back to Ashen, Spider-Man, RDR2, Iconoclasts, Arkham Origins, Sushi Striker, Samus Returns, and Ghost Recon Breakpoint)
