Goal dig­gers

EDGE - - HYPE -

Sys­tem Era is still fine­tun­ing one fi­nal layer of mo­ti­va­tion, the ul­ti­mate aim that drives each Astroneer. Play­ers will be able to share their dis­cov­er­ies with Earth, though the de­vel­oper has yet to work out ex­actly how to present that con­cept. “They’re sent out there be­cause there’s a gold rush go­ing on in space,” Bromell says. “And one Astroneer is go­ing to be bet­ter than an­other in terms of the value of the re­sources they’ve col­lected, but in terms of that over­all idea we haven’t nailed it down 100 per cent.” Mean­while, Pepera says the stu­dio is pre­pared to re­spond to player feed­back: “If there’s an ap­petite for a more hard­core ver­sion of the game, that’s some­thing we could up­date the game with.”
