Independent space explorers prospect the stars for fortune and glory in “Astroneer,” now available for Xbox One and Windows 10 in Game Preview.
“We chose to develop for a console in addition to PCs because we don’t want to shut anyone out. The two audiences can be very different and we want those perspectives,” writes Brendan Wilson, general manager of System Era, the game’s creators. “We chose Xbox specifically because Microsoft, unique among console manufacturers, offers the Game Preview program, allowing us to pursue our preferred strategy, along with the Xbox Play Anywhere program, which we love because it means if you buy the Xbox version of the game, you also get to have the PC experience via the Windows 10 store as well, at no extra cost (or vice versa). Pretty nifty.”
