The team behind planetary exploration game Astroneer have been hinting at its 1.0 update for a while, and now it's confirmed -- December 2018. So fans of the Minecraft-esque space adventure won't have to wait too much longer to experience the new planets, vehicles and climate events -- plus loads of other features -- that the team has been teasing in its development roadmap.

And that's not all. The announcement at E3 included details on post 1.0 content, too. The team is aiming to integrate complete crossplay via dedicated servers, so all players on all platforms (Xbox, Windows 10 and Steam) will be able to play together. And even though Astroneer is essentially a sandbox game, the team is also working on goal oriented gameplay, based on player feedback. More details on these extra features will be announced in the coming months.
