Developer Chucklefish has revealed a brand new trailer detailing all of the new features coming in their winter update for Starbound.

The space-based sandbox survival game, which is in many ways similar to Terraria, has been in Early Access on Steam since December 3rd, 2013, receiving several updates as it has progressed. With the winter update, Chucklefish plans to add to the game a variety of new features such as the Novakids playable race, new biomes, hundreds of items and much more. Combat will also see a complete overhaul that will include 360 degree melee attacks, parrying, shield breaking and the staves weapon class.

There is a ton of new information and content being packed into Starbound to make it an even better game and it still isn’t deemed “finished” yet in its Early Access state. Starbound presently does not have a set release window for its final version. You can check out the trailer detailing all of the improvements coming to the game soon in the video below.
