Farworld Pioneers, the open-world sci-fi sandbox from Igloosoft’s former Rimworld and Starbound developers in collaboration with publisher tinyBuild, is terraforming PlayStation 4|5 today.
After a not-so-successful crash landing on an alien planet, all that’s left is a sharp pickaxe and a helpful NPC as a best friend. Build a makeshift camp to survive the night and set out to build a new life: cultivate a self-sufficient space farm, craft weapons, recruit survivors and unlock blueprints to build a spaceship and conquer the galaxy.
Manage the colony by assigning tasks to fellow residents, meeting their needs and protecting valuable resources from enemy invaders lurking in the shadows. Choose to explore this open-world adventure solo or with up to 32 players per server: work together in co-op mode to build a thriving colony, or battle against different factions and each other in PVP mode.
Explore the galaxy and discover previously unknown biomes filled with new resources and adventures… and new enemies to stand in your way. Progress through the tech tree to unlock knowledge and tools to craft miniguns, laser weapons, and even more destructive equipment. From character movement to bullet trajectory to how grenades ricochet, experience a realistic combat system with real-time physics in 2D side-scrolling action gameplay.
The PlayStation version has received several updates, quality improvements, and bug fixes since its launch on Steam in May.
“We’re excited to finally introduce Farworld Pioneers to the PlayStation community,” said Roe Watson, founder and creative director of Igloosoft. “Collaborative open-world adventures in games like Rimworld, Starbound and Gonomoria have sparked interest in further exploration, leading us to create our vision of the ultimate sandbox experience in space.”
Farworld Pioneers launches today on PlayStation 4|5 for $14.99 It is also available on PC and PC via Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Steam. It supports English, Portuguese (Brazil), French, Italian, German, Spanish (Spain), Japanese, Korean, Russian and Simplified Chinese.
