Starbound beta takes off with release of new trailer


Randomly generated sci-fi action/RPG beta starts NOW

Last night, on the eve of the Starbound beta's release, the developers at Chucklefish put out a new trailer commemorating the early access of this unique and ambitious title. For the uninitiated, Starbound is a randomly generated 2D action RPG title in the vein of Terraria, but features a sci-fi setting and a deeper level of customization for players to delve into.

The trailer does well to show off much the game's potential, as the element of randomization will continue to keep the game fresh for some time to come. As an early access title, this beta period will give fans a taste for what's to come, while also helping out the developers find bugs and other issues with the title.

Beta keys for those who preordered should be going out right now. For more information on Starbound, check out the official website for more trailers and plans for future updates.
