Starbound Will Soon Let You Travel Between The Stars
Starbound's upcoming-someday patch will let players travel through interstellar space, to explore regions that feel no star's warmth. New vehicles will also be introduced, but we don't have any details yet. It sounds neat:
Space isn’t just about stars and planets, it’s about the space between them, so you’ll now be able to fly freely around systems and explore all kinds of new locations, from space stations to traveling merchant ships to mysterious derelicts! Systems won’t just be static, either — moons orbit planets, planets orbit stars, and rich opportunities come and go, rewarding patient explorers with brand new perils and plunder! -Starbound Official Blog
The update, when it releases, will definitely get me back into Starbound. You can see a preview of the new navigation system in the GIF above.
No word on when the update will release just yet, but stay tuned and we'll let you know.
