Independent developer Igloosoft confirmed that open-world sci-fi sandbox game 'Farworld Pioneers' will be available #DayOne on #XboxGamePass on May 30th. Check out the Xbox announcement trailer!
In this open-world galactic sandbox, how you play is up to you! Bring your friends into the frontier in your own private server, or make new friends (and enemies) in large public multiplayer servers. Play peacefully in cooperativ eplay, or use the dynamic multiplayer faction system to band together and split apart dynamically as allegiances change.
Build Ships from Scratch and Travel to New Planets
Your first planet is where youíll learn to survive, but thatís just the start. Build your very own starship and use it to colonise new worlds. It wonít be easy, and only the most successful colonies will be able to pool the resources and knowledge necessary to break orbit. Once you launch, the stars hold brand-new planets, new biomes, bosses, and challenges.
Craft, Research, Loot, and Exploit Your Environment
Youíll need to prepare to take on this hostile part of the galaxy. Get mining, farming, growing, developing, researching, and building hundreds of different items, from winter combat gear to advanced laboratories. Find something you canít work out for yourself. Strap on your handcrafted laser rifle and venture out into the unknown to explore dungeons, procedural bases, NPC stores, and much more.
Defend What Youíve Built, or Take on the Galaxy
Defend your colony with fast-paced combat that utilizes physics like bullet drop, projectile speed, and spread. Thwart enemy raids on your base with your stock of handcrafted grenades. Tired of just defending? Lay waste to enemy bases with destructible terrain as you wield everything from rusty old carbines to nuke launchers and energy weapons that harness the power of lightning!
Develop and Construct Advanced Bases for Protection
Grow from a tiny outpost into an advanced, nuclear-powered fortress. Manage resources carefully and choose research paths based on the items and challenges you encounter on each planet. Watch out, though: the bigger your colony gets, the more of a target it becomes for raiders (and jealous friends).
Automate Work and Train Up a Team
Even out here, youíre not alone. Save AI survivors and build a colony together. A range of unique stats, perks, and flaws mean every colonist has something different to contribute. As your AI colonists complete tasks theyíll level up and get smarter, stronger, and faster. Best of all, you can assign tasks and orders to NPCs to do the grunt work for you and prioritize their roles based on those skills. Want to take a break from mining to destroy an underground alien nest? Let your colonists handle that for you!
Your ship may be in ruins, your ammunition running low, and your teammates scattered across the surface, but remember this:
Youíre more than just another adventurous spirit.
Youíre a Farworld Pioneer.
Farworld Pioneers will be available for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on May 30th. Play it on Day One with Xbox Game Pass!
