Stardew Valley…with Robots? Lightyear: Frontier is an Xbox Showcase highlight.
To infinity….make a pond!
Whilst we certainly had plenty to say during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase about what was and wasn’t there, one of the announcements that caught the eye of Kat and Rossko in particular was Lightyear: Frontier, an open world farming adventure game that looks a whole lot like a 3D Stardew Valley with big-ass mechanical robots. Honestly, what more could you ever need?
Start your home on a distant planet on the far edge of the galaxy, farming alien crops, building your own homestead and explore the wilderness with up to three friends.
CEO of Frame Break, Joakim Hedström said;
“We’re beyond excited to share what we feel is a fresh take on the farming genre, taking aspects from what’s normally quite hectic games like shooters and survival games and recontextualising them in a chill and peaceful experience. We can’t wait to get our game into players’ hands and see what they will create. ”
Amplifier Game Invest’s Head of Publishing Denis Ferrier;
“The vision that FRAME BREAK has for Lightyear Frontier is unique, and we are excited to support them on a project that breaks new, interstellar ground in the farming adventure genre. Stay tuned for Gamescom in August where we will be sharing even more exciting news about our plans for Lightyear Frontier”
Look out for the delightful Lightyear: Frontier in Spring 2023 on Xbox and PC, along with, of course, being available day one on Game Pass.
