What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We need your support and feedback! We are a very small development team and Empyrion – Galactic Survival is an ambitious project.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to be in Early Access during 2-3 years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Many of the core elements of Empyrion are already in place. The full version will have more planets, more diverse planetary biomes, more intelligent enemies, better physics, more functional blocks, quests, trade and a dynamic economy.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version of Empyrion - Galactic Survival is stable, absolutely playable and already features many elements of the full version (for more detail, see "About This Game" below):

- Building of spaceships and bases, extensive crafting system
- Survival and creative mode
- Mining & resource gathering, environmental hazards
- Hunting, farming and food system
- Experience and tech tree
- Single player, multiplayer and co-operative play
Of course, the current version is not yet feature-complete and we are planning to add many more awesome features to the game and refine the existing elements.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, we are planning to gradually increase the price during Early Access when we add new content to the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community involvement is very important for us. We are working closely together with our community, interact on the forums to gather ideas and suggestions, as well as conduct regular surveys to obtain specific feedback from the community.”

About This Game

Empyrion - Galactic Survival is a 3D open world space sandbox survival adventure. Build powerful ships, mighty space stations and vast planetary settlements to explore, conquer or exploit a variety of different planets and discover the mysteries of Empyrion!

Fight human, alien and biological hazards and survive in a hostile galaxy full of hidden dangers. Play as a lone wolf or team-up with your friends, build new friendships, create alliances or make war to conquer the solar system.

Empyrion uniquely combines elements from space simulations, construction games, survival games and ego-shooters. In Empyrion, you can forge your destiny in a galaxy with infinite possibilities!

Space and Planet Exploration:

An absolute free-roaming experience awaits you: warp between planets, fly from planet to moons, land on planets and freely walk around to explore your surroundings. Discover the secrets of different alien races and tangle with the native fauna and flora. A sandbox full of different, vivid planets is waiting for you to explore!

Solar System and Open World:

The solar system is procedurally generated and features several planets and interesting POIs. Each planet has its own characteristics (planet type, gravity, atmosphere, number of moons, terrain, surface, vegetation, climate, and resources).

Building and Construction:

Build large capital vessels, small fighters or mighty space stations and vast planetary settlements by yourself - or download a blueprint from the Steam Workshop and customize it with your very own ideas of form and function!

Survival Mode:

Get out of your escape pod, grab what's left from your ship and prepare to survive in a hostile environment. Food and oxygen are rare, resources are scarce, ammo is low and dangers lurk around each and every corner. Keep your eyes open. You need to be smart and well prepared if you want to survive more than a day on an alien planet far away from Earth.

Creative Mode:

Just build and make your craziest dreams come true, without having to bother with food, resources or enemies. Join the Creative Community and upload your creations to the Steam Workshop!

Singleplayer and Multiplayer

Play as a lone wolf in single player or join the multiplayer community: team-up with your friends, build new friendships, create alliances or make war. You can build yourself a comfortable home in a well-protected PvE area or face the permanent dangers of PvP planets to ransack their riches or conquer the solar system with your faction.

Wildlife and Enemies:

Don't get mislead by the peaceful animal wildlife of some planets and the silence in space. Most of the animal wildlife wants to snack on your leg - and aggressive robot drones, alien soldiers and their guardians will try to hunt you down as soon as you are within sight. Fight for your life and deploy a range of weapons against fierce and obscure alien creatures.

Mining and Resource Gathering:

For building and construction, you need to gather and mine resources. Dig down to the rich deposits of a planet or drill through an asteroid full of rare ore. You might also plunder alien buildings or scrap any structure you come across.

Extensive Crafting System:

Learn how to combine resources and building materials to craft your equipment. Craft your stuff in your base or while you are on the move and equip your buildings and vessels with a range of different devices, weapons and gadgets for different purposes.

Hunting, Farming and Food System:

Grow your own vegetables and fruits or hunt creatures for their meat to prepare yourself a delicious meal. Some plants help to create medical supplies while others can be picked up and consumed for first aid or to quickly settle your empty stomach.

Experience and Tech Tree:

Do whatever you want - and gain experience points for doing so! Scrap that old stuff and use the points to unlock those shiny new devices in the Techtree.

Terrain Deformation:

Each planet features a voxel-based terrain. You can entirely modify and deform the terrain: flatten it for your planetary station, dig holes to find resources or build a tunnel system to protect yourself. Empyrion is a true sandbox game!
