There has been a glut of great first-person space based titles recently. Publisher Reverb Inc and developer Fenix Fire have today announced one of their very own.
Osiris: New Dawn is billed as a terrifying space survival title. The partnership have revealed that the title will release initially on Steam Early Access on the 28th of September and is also in development for consoles, meaning that you could soon be experiencing the full Sci-Fi survival experience.
This striking new game will combine inventive crafting, exploration and skillful combat as you explore an alien system. Colonise worlds filled to the brim with incredible wonders and unforgiving, deadly dangers.
Set in the year 2046, mankind have discovered the lightspeed ‘fold engine’ propulsion system and it has empowered the Osiris expeditionary missions to the Gliese 581 System. Players will form part of the second colonisation team sent by the U.N.E (United Nations of Earth) to study the potential of possible habitable planets. Inevitably, the spacecraft malfunctions and, hitting the brakes hard, the ship is forced into an emergency landing on the planet’s surface.
Overcome the dangers of unprecedented weather conditions by setting up a central base and use modular units to expand it and grow food, create research centres and more. Explore the world you’re stranded on and see what delights and terrors it holds.
Not only will you be able to battle the indigenous life-forms, but in some cases you’ll also be able to tame them. Explore the system alone for riches beyond your imagination in crafted vehicles or form a colony with your friends. The choice in Osiris: New Dawn will be yours.
