About

In Planet Explorers, it is the year 2287, one of the first colony ships sent out by Earth arrives at the planet Maria, in the Epsilon Indi Star System. During its landing sequence, something appears in front of the massive ship that causes it to lose control and crash into the planet. Some of the colonists survive in lifeboats, but what they find is an unforgiving land filled with creatures ready to outlast the visitors from Earth. Now the survivors must explorer, gather, build, create, fight, and ultimately, build a new home.Game Modes
Planet Explorers features single and multiplayer modes.

In single player there are 3 distinct selections

  • Story Mode – Story mode is the main meat and bones of the game, it is the action-adventure-rpg-somewhat-4X segment, offering npcs, missions, colony building, farming, training, diplomacy, and of course, a storyline that you can follow or ignore. This story features a 17X8km world map with many unique character, landscapes, biomes, locations, and over 140 types of potential enemies. Even though we’ve made it seem like a very action oriented game in the trailers, in reality, players can choose to not fight so much as to just plant a farm, make some food, keep the colonists alive, negotiate with the sentient aliens, and defend the perimeter from the local life forms. That can still eventually arrive at the ending. And yes, there is an ending. Story mode also features coop with other players.

  • Adventure Mode – This mode is based on a procedural map generated from a seed. It comes in a 40X40 kilometer map. Players will be able to complete random missions, defeat bosses, dive through dungeons, and explore different landscapes. This mode also features survival and versus.

  • Build Mode – In this mode, there are no enemies and an infinite amount of building material. It also currently comes in a 40X40km map. Players will be able to build whatever they want in this mode, including everything in the Creations Editor. Think of this as the perfect testing ground to test everything you build. Or…it’s your place to build your garden without ever worrying about the pesky aliens.

Multiplayer allows Local Area Network and player hosted servers. We also have many official servers in the lobby.

  • Coop – Coop comes in many selections, such as adventure mode, story mode, build mode, etc. This is pretty much an open world sandbox.

  • Versus – This mode allows teams of up to 16 players to battle against 16 players from another team. We allow full terrain manipulation in this mode. It's a point based system where one team wins if they reach a certain point level based on kills, built objects, resources mined, etc.

Planet Explorers reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Early access review at the time I write this is online the game is in alpha 0752..., there is lot of possibility in this game, the objects that can be created by oneself gives an infinite level of possibility, although at the graphic level currently it's Asser bi in fact, but the program still requires a lot of work especially at the level of our character in the first person, in the third person everything works well, but if we put first person the majority of the commands no longer work, as by example, open a door or close it, so we have to go back to the third person, which quickly becomes annoying for a lover of the first person..., I have not tested this game enormously for now, but it is certain that on the side of the creation , this game gives us the perfect tool to create even in the course of game, the item that we want, and although the programs are easy to use, it is not always easy to build, especially if one is not thorough in our work, but it remains that the PR ograms of creation is one of the best I have seen in games, given the high number of things that can be built, manufactured and imagined, it does not take much time before being completely lost, because to manufactured an object you need this , but to manufacture the say "this" you need this and for fabricated the say "this" you need another item that requires another item for its creation..., but all this and it remains very logical and well done, so much that we do not know what we want to do, I have not tested the story mode, I tested the beginning only of the Adventure mode, which also seems very well done, we start in a very small camp with other AI, he lets us live in a House for a week then we will have to rent it and paid so much by SEM groin, or going to build his house..., unfortunately this game is only in English or Chinese, which makes that I do not understand almost anything, but I managed to manage a little bit for the test, according to what I read on the forums, the designer does not seem interested in FA IRE a French version of the game, to moin that volunteers want to do the translation for free..., although I recommend this game, there is some point that make me hesitated, like the problems in the first person, the hardware window that I find very small , my problem to understand English, ect... but as these are more personal choices, then I believe that the right choice is to give it a Yes in recomendation..., simply because the level of creativity is immense and that the game uses the system "voxel" which allows everything changed the décor , you can dig or dedicate yourself, build mountains where changed places, (if you have years before you HA HA HA), there is also the level of need for sleep and eat that is geerer, and it quickly realizes that a good bed would not do any wrong because the level of rest does not go back quickly if we only sleep... In short, I recommend this game but do not linger at an extreme quality, if you play the first person attender you to be forced to always pass to the 3 person to perform an action, but good good, let's not forget that this game is still only an Alph a, but for those who have a creative mind and who do not have too much difficulty with English, this game will be a bit your paradise for creation..., last point, this game tries to be as realistic as possible, the equipment this terriore with time and requires repair, and in some place we can repair our equipment with local machinne or recharge its batteries on solar sensor, ect..., a lot of action and interaction, and do not forget to recharged your battery, one feels a little stupid the next morning when you wake up when you see that you have not taken two days off and you don't forget to recharge these batteries before you leave HA HA HA
