Team17, and Texas-based independent developer Mothership Entertainment, bring their sci-fi city-building and management sim Aven Colony to PS4 this July.

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, and wetlands light-years from earth.

The game features 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 local lifeforms, including giant acid-spewing sandworms, “creep spores” that infect your buildings, and “plague spores” that infiltrate your colony and infect your colonists with a deadly 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.

All the single player content can also be explored in sandbox mode which allows players to tailor a full suite of options to customise the game experience including editing the starting resources, environmental events, minerals, and a whole heap more.

Launching on the 25th July, Aven Colony is available to pre-order now for £24.99 / $29.99 / 29,99€ in both digital and physical formats. Those who pre-order will receive an additional sandbox map, Cerulean Vale, which allows players to explore its treacherous badlands and discover the remnants of an ancient seabed in this stunning new biome.

We’ll be releasing our preview soon!

The game also comes to Xbox One and PC.
