Aven Colony Turns 1 This Week!

Greetings, governors!

You might've been counting down the days as well, but just in case you missed it; Aven Colony is 1 year old this week! We're incredibly happy to have taken this journey with all of you, and hope you've had a lot of fun exploring and colonising Aven Prime!

It's been a busy year with a lot of free content made available since launch, and we hope you're all enjoying it. We've been pretty quiet for a while and you might be wondering what we've been up to in the last couple of months. Well, we're currently working on bringing the latest free content update - that you all on Steam have enjoyed for quite a while now - to our players on PS4 and Xbox One. Beyond that, though, we're not quite ready to talk about the future of Aven. Rest assured, however, that we're continuously keeping an eye on all of your feedback to help us shape whatever comes next!

As part of our celebration this week, we're currently doing a competition over on Twitter, where you could win a copy of Aven Colony on the platform of your choice - in case you want to check it out on consoles, or want to give a second Steam key to a friend. You can enter it right here!

We hope you've enjoyed all that Aven Colony has offered so far, and would love to know which part of the game you've enjoyed the most. What's been your favourite free update? What's your favourite feature or map? Where would you like to see things going next? Let us know in the comments below!

See you around the colony!

About This Game

Build a new home for humanity with Aven Colony.

Discover Aven Prime - an alien planet of deserts, tundras, and jungles light years from earth. Aven Colony puts you in charge of humanity's first extrasolar settlement, where you build and expand your small colonies into massive, sprawling cities while dealing with the challenges faced when settling on a new world.

Build your colony's infrastructure, look after the well-being of your citizens, manage your resources, and guide your colony to prosperity against the backdrop of the harsh and often dangerous realities of the exotic world of Aven Prime.


COLONIZE AN ALIEN WORLD: Build a new home for humanity on a world with a low-oxygen atmosphere, extreme electrical storms, shard storms, dust devils, deadly toxic gas eruptions from geothermal vents, and days so long they have their own seasons. Explore a variety of biomes, from the lush wetlands environment to the much less habitable desert and arctic.

MEET THE LOCALS: Encounter a variety of alien life forms, including giant sandworms, deadly plague spores, and a vicious fungal infection known as “The Creep.”

SUPERVISE YOUR COLONISTS: Settling a new world can be stressful. As a new Colony Governor, you’ll need to work overtime to help your colonists deal with their new environment. Using the 12 distinct "overlay" modes, you can mange your colony's Crops, Citizens, Happiness, Crime, Air, Electricity, Employment, Resources, Commute, Structures, Drones, and Water. Earn the respect of your colonists, and rise in rank from Colony Governor to Expedition President!

DISCOVER THE PAST: The world of Aven Prime holds many secrets. Play through a full single-player campaign and participate in a story that reveals some of the many secrets of this brave new world.

BUILD THE FUTURE: Use construction drones to build dozens of types of structures to house your colonists, establish trading routes, welcome immigrants and much more! Enhance your existing buildings through several upgrade tiers to push your colony to new heights!

EXPEDITION SYSTEM: Deploy your crack team of pioneers to explore alien ruins, recover artifacts, repair crashed vessels and rescue lost explorers. Get ready to take on plague and creep spore nests whilst fending off splinter groups, rebels and Aven Prime's remaining robot guardians which threaten your new civilisation.

PREPARE FOR WINTER: A fully functional day/night and seasonal cycle. During the winter Aven Prime freezes over - farms will not grow food and solar panels will generate far less electricity. Take measures to survive this harsh climate!
