Update: Asteroids: Outpost is officially available for Early Access on Steam. Atari temporarily priced the game at $ 19.79 to commemorate the year the original arcade hit was released (1979).
Trailblazing into new territory is rarely a peaceful process, and it’s foolish to think the expansion into space would be any less bloody. Atari has revealed the grisly premier trailer for developer Salty Games' first-person MMO space survival game, Asteroids: Outpost. Underwater in space, no one can hear your pet goldfish scream.
Check out the trailer below to see a stylish, slow-motion glimpse at the chaotic interstellar frontier. Be sure to also check out three new screenshots in the media gallery below this story.

For the unfamiliar, Asteroids: Outpost is all about building up your base on a resource-rich planetoid, blasting asteroids out of the space above, racing to collect the useful materials that shower to the surface, then collecting those scraps to upgrade your gear and build out your base. All the while, you’ll have to fend off other villainous players and cooperate with allies with the option to link your bases.
Asteroids: Outpost is available today for Early Access on Steam for $ 29.99. I haven't gotten my hands on the game yet, but to learn more about what has me excited read this preview based off a recent GDC 2015 presentation.
