Osiris: New Dawn

 

Ever wonder what No Man's Sky could have been if they met all their promises? I understand that we are all weary of sandbox space games now but this one could be the one. Osiris: New Dawn is the newest space, early access game that became available on Steam yesterday. This game won PAX West 2016's Best Survival Game and PAX's Best Indie MMO awards. These accomplishments alone bring a lot of promise for Fenix Fire Entertainment's new title. 

Let's start with the best feature of this game and that is.. online multiplayer. But wait! How can they have multiplayer when NMS could not? It appears that Origin: New Dawn will be sacrificing the procedural generation of 18.4 quinitillion planets in order to make room for your friends. I'd much rather prefer to explore a single solar system with a close group of friends than spend an eternity with disfigured dinosaurs. 

Players will be able to build a thriving colony alongside their friends and defend their structures from alien species, environmental dangers and assaults from other players' colonies.

 

 

Now I would once again like to restate that this game is in early access, meaning the developers acknowledge that it is not finished yet and you will definitely be running into some bugs and glitches. If you are fine with playing an unfinished game then this looks like a great pick up. If you are expecting a polished experience then you may want to wait a while before getting this. I'd like to think of this as Rust in space and Rust does have a huge payer base. 

 

 

In regards to graphics, it is claimed to have a "light-year visual difference" with qualities being compared to AAA titles which means you will need to have some good gear. Here are the minimum and recommended requirements:

MINIMUM:
    • OS: Windows 7 | 64-bit OS
    • Processor: Intel i5 | 3.2GHz
    • Memory: 4 GB RAM
