Meeting the Locals in Aven Colony’s Latest Trailer

Mothership Entertainment have released a new trailer for their flagship game, Aven Colony, and in this one, we get to meet the locals.

Aside from odd balls of what appear to be plasma, the occasional floating brain, giant cell like creatures and a massive worm, you will also get to see the weather. From heavy snow storms, to sandstorms, even miasmatic green glow that can envelop your colony, so you will have to build the appropriate items to keep your citizens alive and well.

Now, I did mention the locals earlier, well, the worms are acid-spewing, the cell like creatures are Creep Spores that infect buildings, the plasma like ones are Plague Spores that infect your citizens once they get inside, so…you will need a few defensive turrets, cleaning sprays and a verbose medical facility at the very least.

Also in the news was that the sandbox version is being given some good ol’ love and attention, so we will hopefully see a huge set of customizations, and who knows, maybe a mission editor at some point (wishful, but can happen). If you are interested in RTS games, head on over and keep an eye out for the Steam release of Aven Colony sometime before July.

Official Press Release

UK – 6th April 2017 – Award-winning veteran games developer and international games label Team17 and Texas-based independent developer Mothership Entertainment have today released a new gameplay trailer for engrossing sci-fi city-building and management sim, Aven Colony, which is heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC soon.

A gripping, rich simulation of an alien colony, Aven Colony allows you to build, customise, and maintain your settlement within Aven Prime, a hostile extra-terrestrial world full of deserts, tundras, badlands, and wetlands light-years from earth.

Dive in to an extensive dedicated single-player campaign where you’ll need to brave Aven Prime’s harsh environments with freezing winters, lightning storms, ice storms, and toxic gas clouds. Prepare for attacks from the locals, including giant acid-spewing sandworms, “Creep spores” that infect your buildings, and “plague spores” that infiltrate your colony and infect your colonists with the plague. You must protect your colony from everything the planet has to throw at them, and shape the future of the survival of the human race. There’s even an immersive sandbox mode which features a variety of unique maps to choose from and a full suite of options to customize the game experience.

Will your plucky settlers survive and prosper on this exotic alien world, and uncover its many secrets? Find out later this year when Aven Colony launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in Q2 2017.
