Random Seed Games launched its open world Mars survival game Lacuna Passage on PC via Steam today. The game is launching as an Early Access title with a price tag of $14.99. In addition to the game launching today, we also received a new launch trailer for the game which can be seen below.
Lacuna Passage will be launching in two phases. The first phase, which was released today is the sandbox mode of the game. Phase two will introduce a proper story mode, which is still in development.
If this is your first time hearing about Lacuna Passage, here is a quick breakdown of the games premise and features:
You wake in an landing pod, check your equipment, and venture out onto the red Martian soil in search of a nearby habitat. With 25 square miles of the Red Planet to explore and survive, you must gather resources from randomized points-of-interest, supply caches, and other habitats in order to continue your mission. But survival is more than just tracking status bars. Maintaining your life-support equipment is just as important as maintaining your health. Lacuna Passage’s Survival Sandbox will allow you to test drive the core game mechanics in Steam Early Access ahead of the upcoming Story Mode.
