Atari today announced Early Access availability for Asteroids: Outpost. The sandbox, open world, multiplayer shooter is a dramatic reboot of the 1979 arcade classic.
Set in the distant future, Asteroids: Outpost updates the asteroid-blasting action of the original by putting players in the role of deep-space miners, harvesting rare ore and expanding their bases, while protecting themselves from deadly asteroid showers and claim jumpers.
“This is part of our new strategy. We are going to be teaming up with young and innovative studios to take a refreshing look at each game from our extensive portfolio,” said Todd Shallbetter, Chief Operating Officer, Atari. “Releasing Asteroids: Outpost through the Early Access program will also help us get feedback from the community. Asteroids is the first of a long series of re-births, and we are considering doing the same for our other iconic games such as Warlords, Adventure, Tempest, Missile Command and many more.”
To commemorate the1979 arcade release of Asteroids, Asteroids: Outpost will be discounted 34% to just £16.49/$19.79 for a limited time. To find out more, visit the Asteroids: Outpost Steam page at: http://bit.ly/AsteroidsOutpostSteam.
