Developers Fugitive Games have confirmed that their space survival simulation title Into The Stars will leave early access and officially launch on March 4th 2016. You can see the game in action in the trailer below:

“We’ve been under attack for 10 years now. Every 6 months the Skorn arrive, set on destroying our planet, and now few of us remain to defend what’s left. The massive Ark ships we’ve built in hopes of escaping them have all gone, save one. You must take the role of Captain of our final vessel, the Ark 13, and guide a hand-picked, but inexperienced crew on a journey fraught with intrigue and danger. The fate of the Endurance Coalition is uncertain and you could well be our last hope. How will you fare once you set out Into the Stars?

Into the Stars is an open-world Space Survival Simulation built in Unreal Engine 4, featuring an original score from Jack Wall.

Take the role of Captain as you explore a massive star system in search of a new home for humanity. Outfit your ship, hand pick your crew and set off on a journey where you must scavenge resources, shelter civilians and either outrun, or outgun a hostile alien force, in order to survive.”

Into The Stars has been described as a ‘flasher FTL‘, which is pretty high praise when you consider how love FTL is. You can still play it on early access for now (click here for a link to the Steam page), but those who want the full experience don’t have too long to wait – Into The Stars launches on March 4th for PC.
