Revealed at the Twitchgaming Showcase: ID@Xbox, Lightyear Frontier from FRAME BREAK and Amplifier Game Invest will see you given the opportunity to get in your mech and cultivate alien plants, domesticate wildlife, endure the elements, and build your new home away from home. And it’s coming to Xbox and PC pretty damn soon.
An open-world farming exploration game with a mystery-driven narrative and a cosmic country soundtrack, Lightyear Frontier is set to please farming and exploration/crafting fans alike. And if you don’t believe us, take in that reveal trailer below.
Inviting you (and your friends in up to 4-player co-op) to grow a cornucopia of cosmic resources and use your fresh harvest to improve your mech equipment, in Lightyear Frontier you will be given the chance to become a seasoned farmer; albeit one with a souped-up mech, as you go about growing rare plants and further exploring previously inaccessible environments. You never know, you might just be able to uncover a mystery on this new planet in the process.
Blending farming features with crafting, resource management, and base building, Lightyear Frontier’s alien planet is yours to transform and mould. While you’ll be safe on this new planet (thanks to the advice of PIP-3R, your trusty scanner satellite), your crops will need all the help they can get: from dealing with the ever-changing weather to keeping the local wildlife away, you will need to take a few precautions to safeguard your home on this new frontier.
The key features will include:
- CRAFT, BUILD, GROW – Make use of the environment to craft and build your farm. Find and grow new resources on your own. Cultivate your crops with farming mechanics like you’ve never seen before. Use your harvest to improve your mech and venture further into the planet’s exotic ecosystem.
- FARM AND EXPLORE ALONE OR AS A GROUP – Play solo or invite up to 3 other players to your planet. Whether you want to start a farm together with your friends or just give them a quick tour, you can open your planet up for visitors whenever you want!
- TAKE CARE OF YOUR HARVEST – Endure a multitude of weather conditions and other environmental hazards through four distinct seasons and take the necessary precautions to save your harvest.
- EXPLORE A PLANET WITH A PAST – Venture into the unknown, discover ancient ruins, and uncover the secrets of your planet to decipher a message that has waited for eons to be heard.
- CREATE YOUR NEW HOME ON THE LIGHTYEAR FRONTIER – You are free to build anywhere and customize your farm to your liking. A plethora of constructs and cosmetic tools allow you to build the exofarm of your dreams. Don’t forget to take a break between exploration and farmwork.
Give it a little look over on Steam, but be sure to stay tuned for further details surrounding the launch of Lightyear Frontier on Xbox and PC real soon.
