Yesterday, we got some really weird news from Atari.
They’ve announced a new game in the ancient Asteroids franchise that they started in 1979 titled Asteroids: Outpost, a title they’ve described as “an open world sandbox survival game”.
In this game, you’ll take on the role of a deep space miner, who stalks out the land to protect it from other players, and attempts to gain control of more land in search of more resources.
The announcement stated that crafting, customization, and equipment will be very important to the game. Salty Studios, the developers, have stated that the game could hit Steam Early Access as soon as March.
In the screenshots released for the game, it’s easy to compare the game’s design to Destiny.
