After a long wait, System Era Softworks’ game is finally available on all platforms (except mobile).
The time has finally arrived! The critically acclaimed interstellar sandbox adventure from System Era Softworks, Astroneer, is now available on Nintendo Switch. To commemorate this milestone, players can experience the new Xenobiology content update, which is accessible across all platforms and has already attracted over 8 million players.
Astroneer is a survival game, but because of the lesser pressure of its “survival” features, it has always seemed more like a sandbox. In adventure mode, you die if you run out of oxygen; a gauge on your backpack displays how much oxygen you have left. However, oxygen is readily replenished from buildings, vehicles, or manufacturing tethers that link players to an oxygen line.
As a result, Astroneer is suitable for those who like crafting and base management but want to do so in a relaxed setting. The game casts players in the role of an astronaut on a randomly created planet where they must gather resources, construct a base, and explore the vastness of space.
An updated version
This updated Switch edition provides the same gameplay experience as the original, with the extra benefit of being able to play portable or on TV, as well as 40+ content updates and four-player online co-op. This makes the Switch version of Astroneer the ultimate version for people who appreciate the adventure rather than the game’s base construction.
Astroneer is currently available for $29.99 on the Nintendo eShop. You can obtain the game’s “Power” pack, which contains a palette and a viewfinder modification package if you buy it today. Astroneer is only available for a short time, so don’t miss out if you want to have an exciting journey on other planets.
