Get Ready to Explore the Frontiers of Outer Space in Astroneer – November 29, 2016 
Visit the Early Access page 

In Astroneer, you get a chance to strike it rich in a 25th-Century gold rush in outer space. Here, you will…explore procedurally generated environments that can be traversed and reshaped; research rare discoveries; extract valuable resources; survive the elements; and customize vehicles and base modules. Play alone or online drop-in/drop-out co-op with up to three friends.

Developer System Era Softworks would like to offer a few caveats concerning Early Access expectations. The following appears in the Astroneer blog

When Astroneer launches in December it will be an incomplete game.

The game’s core designs will be playable, but some will be fleshed out more than others.

There will be art that looks incomplete, very rough, or too simple.

The multiplayer will hitch and probably act weird (hilariously so).

Audio [can] be missing or trigger in the wrong spots. Or maybe the music playing isn’t appropriate for your moment.

You may even experience a game-breaking bug that will force you to start over from scratch.

Astroneer will be available on Steam Early Access, the Windows 10 Store and as an Xbox Play Anywhere Game Preview title beginning December 16, 2016.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
