Aven Colony Gameplay Trailer Details
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.

Earn the respect of your colonists, and rise in rank from Colony Governor to Expedition President!
Discover the Past: The world of Aven Prime holds many secrets. Play through a full single-player campaign and participate in a story that reveals some of the many secrets of this brave new world.
