Empyrion - Galactic Survival is a 3D open world space sandbox survival adventure. Build mighty ships, menacing space stations and vast planetary settlements to explore, conquer or exploit a variety of different planets and the allegedly empty space! Fight human, alien and biological hazards and survive in a hostile galaxy full of hidden dangers - on your own or with your friends.

The game uniquely combines elements from space simulations, construction games, survival games and ego-shooters. Empyrion is currently under development by Eleon Game Studios.

Detailed Game Features:

Space and Planet Exploration:

An absolute free-roaming experience awaits you: warp between planets, fly from planet to moons, land on planets and freely walk around to explore your surroundings. Discover the secrets of the Aliens and tangle with the native fauna and flora. A sandbox full of different, vivid planets waiting for you to explore!



Solar System and Open World:

The solar system is procedurally generated and features several planets and POIs. Each planet has its own characteristics (planet type, gravity, atmosphere, number of moons, terrain, surface, vegetation, climate, and resources).


Building and Construction:

Build large capital vessels, small fighters or exceptional space and planetary bases by yourself - or download a blueprint from the Steam Workshop and customize it with your very own ideas of form and function!


Survival Mode:

Get out of your escape pod, grab what's left from your ship and prepare to survive in a hostile environment. Food and oxygen are rare, resources are scarce, ammo is low and dangers lurk around each and every corner. Keep your eyes open. You need to be well prepared if you want to survive more than a day on an alien planet far away from Earth.


Creative Mode:

Just build and make your crazy dreams come true, without having to bother with food, resources or enemies. Join the Creative Community and upload your creations to the Steam Workshop!


Singleplayer and Multiplayer

Play as a lone wolf in singleplayer or join the multiplayer community: Make yourself a comfortable home in a well-protected PvE area or pick up some friends, head out and beat the permanent dangers of PvP planets to ransack their riches or conquer the solar system with your faction.


Wildlife and Enemies:

Don't get mislead by the peaceful fauna of some planets and the silence in space. Most of the animal wildlife wants to snack on your leg - and aggressive robot drones, alien soldiers and their guardians will try to hunt you down as soon as you are within sight. Watch your six and deploy a range of weapons for your defence.

Mining and Resource Gathering:

For building and construction, you need to gather and mine resources. Dig down to the rich deposits of a planet or drill through an asteroid full of rare ore. You might also plunder alien buildings or scrap any structure you come across.


Extensive Crafting System:

Learn how to combine resources and building materials to craft your equipment. Craft your stuff in your base or while you are on the move and equip your buildings and vessels with a range of different devices, weapons and gadgets for different purposes.

Hunting, Farming and Food System:

Grow your own vegetables and fruits or hunt creatures for their meat to prepare yourself a delicious meal. Some plants help to create medical supplies while others can be picked up and consumed for first aid or to quickly settle your empty stomach.


Experience and Tech Tree:

Do whatever you want - and gain experience points for doing so! Scrap that old stuff and use the points to unlock those shiny new devices in the Techtree.


Terrain Deformation:

Each planet features a voxel-based terrain. You can entirely modify and deform the terrain: flatten it for your planetary station, dig holes to find resources or build a tunnel system to protect yourself. Empyrion is a true sandbox game!

Hi Galactic Survivalists,

Early December, we started our Feature Survey 2018 and now it is time to reveal the results!

Survey Statistics:
- We have received more than 11.000 completed surveys in about 2.5 weeks (the last survey in 2016 took more than 2 months for the same amount of replies!)
- We have received more than 8500 feedback comments with the survey (which we are still evaluating)

Global Gameplay / Group Preferences:
- The average player has played Empyrion for about 101-250 hours.
- Most of the multiplayer groups consist of 3 members.
- The average size of the default multiplayer "group of friends" is between 3 and 5
- Most players that participated in the survey prefer to play PvE, i.e. fight against the environment (combined single player and PvE players in multiplayer)

Thanks to your overwhelming participation, we now have a very good overview about the features we should prioritize when planning the Alpha 8 and 9 features for early next year.

Please find more stats and graphs below!

As you all know, we are monitoring our forums for feedback and we have started to add several major discussion topics in the last weeks - which we will continue on a regular basis.

These feedback threads are especially important since the results of the survey are manifold. So it is very important to make use of the forums and suggestion threads in the next weeks to add more context to these results!

The same applies to our Steam forums and of course the reviews on our Steam Store page:

If you enjoy playing Empyrion, please do not forget to add a Review - thumbs up or down. We will read your feedback and take it serious.

Said that, please enjoy the most recent update Alpha 7.5 and Happy Holidays from all of us at Empyrion Galactic Survival! :)

Empyrion is ok, I just wish the art in game did not look like mash up. I heard they got their textures off deviant art and that they do not have artists working on the game. That is a turn off for me.

I've gotten less sleep since discovering this game a few years ago, it's that good.

Wonderful game! Keep up the good work!


There is some procedural generation. With the current version, though, they're experimenting with image maps for planet surfaces. But it does sound like they plan to implement improved procedural generation down the road.

Excellent sci-fi survival that is quite polished and fun even at this stage of Early Access. I hope they will concentrate on single player aswell, since i have no interests in multiplayer.
