Astroneer has been updated to Ver. (Breakdown Event). You can see the patch notes for this update below.

Trigger the Breakdown Event by completing the Battery Backup mission and claiming the mission reward at any Landing Pad. Next, open your compass and equip your drill as you make your way into the caves to uncover the mysteries below. Fulfill the requirements presented in the EXO Request Platform to begin mending the anomalies within the system.

But beware, the caves are like a maze, posing the risk of getting lost amidst their complex twists and turns. Prepare yourself for unique hazards, including toxic gas, aggressive flora, and treacherous terrain.

Dive into all three stages of the event for a triple dose of adventure!

  • Stage 1: Monday, January 29
  • Stage 2: Monday, February 5
  • Stage 3: Monday, February 12

Event Ends: Sunday, April 7

  • 2,619 Points: NEW “Baublegum” Visor
  • 111, 519 Points: NEW “Liminal Leak” Palette
