Get your building skills and resource hands ready for the new PS4 game Astraea, coming early 2016! It is currently being developed by Northwind Interactive, known for their games Gem Sword: Unlimited, First Person Runner, and Battle Cubes.

 The Lead Developer, Brandyn Engbrecht, states that the game is an “open-ended multiplayer sandbox game that allows you to build a town, run a farm, and make lots of friends”.

In Astraea, players will be able to customize their houses and decorate their villages with buildings, objects, and structures. The villagers can be helpful with tending the crops, raising animals, and joining you for competitions as they are interacted with. It also seems like the villagers may give out quests to you, which can be completed at your own pace. Some of the activities are little mini games you can play against villagers or other players. These activities involve archery, racing and fishing contests.

"Astraea was designed to be an open ended game, so don’t feel rushed when creating your town and let your imagination soar!" - Brandyn Engbrecht, Lead Developer

If you can’t wait to try this game out, Northwind Interactive will be showing off the game at Central Canada Comic Con, which runs from October 30 to November 1, 2015. They will be located at Indie Gamer Alley in the BaseLAN section, showing off their new features. If you can’t wait that long, then you can purchase the alpha of the game for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and Consoles from the Northwind Interactive website for $9.99.
