The game hits Steam early access very soon.
Eleon Game Studios officially announces release date for their upcoming video game “Empyrion - Galactic Survival”: the game will hit Steam Early Access on August 5, 2015.
Empyrion is a 3D free roaming, space survival adventure in which you can fly across space and land on planets. Build, explore, fight and survive in a hostile galaxy full of hidden dangers. The game is unique because it combines elements from space simulations, construction games, survival games and ego-shooters. Empyrion is an innovative blend between Eve Online, Space Engineers, Minecraft, Rust and Halo – all in one package!
It's a fairly ambitious claim - if it achieves this it will surely be the best game of all time?!
