Team17 and Texas-based developer Mothership Entertainment just announced the launch date for their engrossing city-building and management simulator, Aven Colony. Unlike traditional simulators, this game takes place on exotic alien planets. Launching on July 25 on Xbox One and PC, Aven Colony is available to preorder now for $30 in both digital and physical formats from select retailers. Those who preorder will receive an additional sandbox map, Cerulean Vale, which allows players to explore its treacherous badlands and discover the remnants of an ancient seabed in this stunning new biome.
Aven Colony is a gripping, rich simulation of an alien colony. It allows you to build, customize, and maintain your settlement within Aven Prime, a hostile extraterrestrial world full of deserts, tundras, and wetlands light-years from Earth. Dive in to an extensive dedicated single-player campaign, where you’ll need to brave Aven Prime’s harsh environments with freezing winters, lightning storms, ice storms, and toxic gas clouds. Prepare for attacks from the local lifeforms, including giant acid-spewing sandworms, creep spores that infect your buildings, and plague spores that infiltrate your colony and infect your colonists with a deadly plague. You must protect your colony from everything the planet has to throw at them, and shape the future of the survival of the human race.
