14th March – A Star War

Hey everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your week. Here’s a look at some more things you’ll be seeing in the upcoming Starbound update!

In previous updates we’ve shown off how we’re expanding space travel so that it’s more than just a way to access planets, as well as adding space stations as a new type of location you’ll be able to visit. In fact, there’ll be many kinds of places to visit out in deep space, but unlike planets, getting to them isn’t as simple as teleporting to them. Luckily, the new mechs that are coming this update are perfect zero-gravity exploration vehicles!

Exploring space in Starbound can be as dangerous as exploring uncharted planets – which is to say you have to watch out for an assortment of weird and hostile creatures! Space combat in Starbound is quite a different experience to fighting on the surface of worlds, to say the least.

You’ll be well prepared to deal with this, however! You can outfit your mech with a variety of equipment, from gatling guns to deployable drones and energy swords.

This is shaping up to be our most ambitious post-release update for Starbound yet! We’ll share some more info soon enough. :)


What’s this?! As you may well have heard already, we here at Chucklefish have announced a new game! It’s called Wargroove, and you can watch the announcement trailer here. If you wait to the end of the trailer, you may see some familiar faces…

Starbound’s Floran race, commanded by none other than Nuru, feature in Wargroove! Does this take place in the world of Starbound? How did Nuru get there? Is this even canon?! To find out more you’ll have to follow progress for Wargroove on its very own development blog, just like Starbound! We’re so excited, and hope you all are too!

‘Til next time!
