Aerospace industry and interplanetary exploration game Astroneer will leave Xbox Game Preview and Steam Early Access, and launch for Xbox One and PC on February 6, 2019, developer System Era Softworks announced.

The Early Access and Game Preview edition of Astroneer is currently $19.99, but will rise to its final launch price of $29.99 on November 16 and include the new “Retro” suit exclusively for Early Access supporters.

Here is an overview of the full release, via System Era Softworks:

Liftoff 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. Increased character customization options empower every astronaut to showcase their personality as they explore new narrative elements. Dedicated servers will enable intrepid adventurers to build their bases asynchronously through Xbox One and PC cross-play, fulfilling the developer’s intended vision.

System Era Softworks is composed of senior AAA veterans from companies including Bungie, Ubisoft, Disney, Valve, and many more. Through their collective vision of interplanetary exploration, the team has set out to develop an experience where the only limit is creativity.

Grab friends for online multiplayer and blast off to explore uncharted planets, unearth rare materials, and unlock the mysteries of the universe. Reshape colorful terrain, molding the stylized minimalist landscape to create mountains, or chasms all while immersed in the meditative sounds of the sci-fi synth soundtrack.

Gather resources to craft new tools and modules at fully customizable bases, then pack those bases onto vehicles and shuttles to fuel further forays into the unknown. Harness the ingenuity of an intrepid Astroneer to take on the final frontier as one of the forerunners of a new age of space expansion, propelling humanity into the future.
