August 1, 2014Written by Jason Dunning

Successfully Kickstarted earlier this year (and currently available through Early Access on computers), Habitat: A Thousand Generations in Orbit from indie developer 4gency was recently announced for release on PlayStation 4 in 2015, in addition to its already planned PC, Mac, Linux, and Xbox One versions.

A “real-time, physics-driven orbital strategy game where you build, fly, and fight with the unique space stations that you create out of space debris orbiting earth,” here’s the description for Habitat:

In Habitat gamers have to build and manage the future homes of humanity from orbital debris they find in space junkyards surrounding Earth’s orbit. Leading their team of engineers, they will have to build and fly space stations in a zero gravity setting, mastering physics driven flight simulation to explore space. In order to thrive and grow they have to manage their population and their population’s environment. In the event of a threat they will have to turn their space stations into deadly weapons using pieces of debris picked up such as rockets, lasers and particle accelerators to fight and ultimately survive against attacks from the enemy. This is a space survival game where crisis is guaranteed and the only chance for survival is to be creative and decisive in the face of disaster.

Addressing the PS4 announcement, 4gency Founder Charles Cox said, “Since development began on Habitat, it has always been our wish to bring our space survival simulation to as many platforms as technologically possible. We are incredibly excited to announce that Habitat will be launching on PlayStation 4 in 2015 and can’t wait to see how the creative PlayStation community reacts to Habitat’s gameplay mechanics.”
