Starbound Is Finally Getting a Full Release

Wait… What? Starbound version 1.0 is launching on the 22nd of July.


When I think of things that are impossible, I have a few steps. The first step of course, are things that are ‘unlikely’, followed by ‘not possible’, and lastly, a ‘miracle’. The full release of Starbound has its own category beyond these tiers.

Its been almost 5 years since the game’s initial announcement, and it has been in Steam Early Access since December 2013. The road to launch has been a rocky one at best; community outrage, MIA developers -I honestly thought the game was never going to be released.

In an announcement on their website, Chucklefish have stated that:

“While Starbound will be finished in two weeks, this isn’t the end. We will continue to update and support Starbound for as long as we can. We’ve got loads of cool ideas we couldn’t fit into 1.0 but hope to put into future updates.”

So there you have it, I guess pigs can fly.
