Those disappointed by No Man's Sky's lack of co-op play will likely be intrigued by the similarly procedurally-generated space exploration title Astroneer, which is coming to Steam Early Access and Xbox One's Game Preview Program on 16th December.


Astroneer allows players to explore procedurally-generated planets that can be terraformed and harvested for resources. According to developer System Era Softworks, players can "reshape terrain as though it were made of Play-Doh."

It's not just the landscapes that are malleable either, as players can craft their own custom-designed spaceships, vehicles and modules.

It won't necessarily be a lonely void out there either, as Astroneer will feature up to four-player drop-in/drop-out co-op, so you and your mates can form a new world together.

The developer noted that Astroneers will cost $19.99 (about 16) on all platforms.
