Blast from the Past (Kinda) - Atari's Asteroids: Outpost

Fans of the old arcade classic "Asteroids" will be happy to hear that Atari is resurrecting the IP in a sense with the newly announced Asteroids: Outpost, an open world sandbox survival MMO for PC. The game will feature players gathering resources, staking claims, crafting equipment and protecting all their worldly (or otherworldly) goods.

Players are sent to our Solar System's asteroid belt to claim their rock in order to reap the mineral harvests the Earth colonies need.

“Asteroids is one of the most iconic titles in Atari’s portfolio of more than 200 games and franchises, and we’re looking forward to ushering the game into today’s digital gaming era,” said Fred Chesnais, Chief Executive Officer, Atari. “We’re paying homage to the original Asteroids by incorporating classic features such as asteroid blasting capabilities, while introducing a completely new premise and gameplay. Asteroids: Outpost will appeal to both fans of the classic Asteroids as well as enthusiasts of immersive survival games and expansive MMOs.”

According to the press release, PC early access is slated to begin soon. In the meantime, head to the Asteroids: Outpost site.
