Atari Announces Asteroids: Outpost
Atari is bringing back to life one of the most iconic titles in its portfolio with the upcoming release of Asteroids: Outpost for PC, reinventing the classic game as an open world, sandbox-style, survival experience where players can mine, build and must defend their base as they grow theor fortunes.
“We’re looking forward to ushering the game into today’s digital gaming era,” said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. “We’re paying homage to the original Asteroids by incorporating classic features such as asteroid blasting capabilities, while introducing a completely new premise and gameplay. Asteroids: Outpost will appeal to both fans of the classic Asteroids as well as enthusiasts of immersive survival games and expansive MMOs.”
While on a harsh deep space environment set in the distant future, players face the challenges of exploring a massive asteroid, collecting resources, scavenging for ore, crafting equipment, and expanding their territory as they build highly customized bases - all while forming alliances and fighting off other players in challenging multiplayer gameplay.
Very little is know for the time being, but we'll definitely keep an eye on it. Stay tuned if you want to know more.
