A new sci-fi sandbox FPS called Outpost Zero has been announced by tinyBuild. This new game will feature base building, resource management and everything you would expect from a typical survival title.
Players take on the role of an AI Overseer sent from Earth and tasked with securing humanity’s future by establishing a habitat on a strange alien world. Players will have to fend off attackers, take on enemy strongholds, build defenses and protect the colony.
Outpost Zero is expected to release this year and gamers can sign-up for an alpha test now. Here is the first trailer and there’s more details below.
This hostile planet can become a thriving colony with a fully functioning society of AI robots, under your direction. Harvest resources and build a stable economy, setup mining outposts and supply chains to your automated factories to create components essential for the operation of your outpost. Create a base for safe refuge and infrastructure to keep your AI outfitted, healthy, and happy. Make homes for your colonists, provide them with entertainment, and build defenses to keep out invaders.
At its core, Outpost Zero is a deep sandbox FPS. Fight against a variety of native alien creatures, and defend your base against roving bands of pirates and enemy raiders. Attack enemy strongholds to destroy their operations and loot their resources. The game will feature scaling combat with upgradeable weapons and armor, and group combat with AI squad mates to lead into battle against enemy bases.
Outfit your AI buddies and train them to defend your outpost. Upgrade them with improved weapons and armor, train them to be better at combat, crafting, and resource harvesting, and give them jobs to keep them busy and keep your outpost running at peak efficiency. Build them luxurious quarters and raise their morale by entertaining them and satisfying their needs. Lead them into battle, and set them up to defend your base from invaders. Build a society of happy, efficient, and powerful robot citizens.
