Pre-order Aven Colony today to explore the treacherous badlands of Cerulean Vale. This additional sandbox map features the harshest environment yet, and the greatest rewards. Push yourself to the limit of extrasolar survival! Build a new home for humanity with Aven Colony. Discover Aven Prime – an alien planet of deserts, tundras, and jungles light years from earth. Aven Colony puts you in charge of humanity’s first extrasolar settlement, where you build and expand your small colonies into massive, sprawling cities while dealing with the challenges faced when settling on a new world.

COLONIZE AN ALIEN WORLD: Build a new home for humanity on a world with a low-oxygen atmosphere, extreme electrical storms, shard storms, dust devils, deadly toxic gas eruptions from geothermal vents, and days so long they have their own seasons. Explore a variety of biomes, from the lush wetlands environment to the much less habitable desert and arctic.

MEET THE LOCALS: Encounter a variety of alien life forms, including giant sandworms, deadly plague spores, and a vicious fungal infection known as “The Creep.”

SUPERVISE YOUR COLONISTS: Settling a new world can be stressful. As a new Colony Governor, you’ll need to work overtime to help your colonists deal with their new environment. Using the 12 distinct “”overlay”” modes, you can mange your colony’s Crops, Citizens, Happiness, Crime, Air, Electricity, Employment, Resources, Commute, Structures, Drones, and Water. Earn the respect of your colonists, and rise in rank from Colony Governor to Expedition President!

DISCOVER THE PAST: The world of Aven Prime holds many secrets. Play through a full single-player campaign and participate in a story that reveals some of the many secrets of this brave new world.

BUILD THE FUTURE: Use construction drones to build dozens of types of structures to house your colonists, establish trading routes, welcome immigrants and much more! Enhance your existing buildings through several upgrade tiers to push your colony to new heights!

EXPEDITION SYSTEM: Deploy your crack team of pioneers to explore alien ruins, recover artifacts, repair crashed vessels and rescue lost explorers. Get ready to take on plague and creep spore nests whilst fending off splinter groups, rebels and Aven Prime’s remaining robot guardians which threaten your new civilisation.

PREPARE FOR WINTER: A fully functional day/night and seasonal cycle. During the winter Aven Prime freezes over – farms will not grow food and solar panels will generate far less electricity. Take measures to survive this harsh climate!

In the year 2041 global corporations replaced countries and the neuro interface implant became a requirement to work – a requirement to survive… Everything, and everyone, is connected. Every move is tracked and there is no more space for individuality. We learned to live with it – we had to. The Eurasian V-Eye Corporation, owning 55 percent of the global resources, started to implant a new compulsory brain mod that was meant to improve the population’s productivity.

Syndrome

Xbox One Games Releasing the Week of July 24, 2017 Syndrome

Release Date: July 28, 2017
$19.99 USD

Syndrome is a survival horror game set in the future,  where the player controls a character who wakes up in a spaceship, with no memory of what happened.
The spaceship is adrift in space, and most of the crew is dead or insane. The rest is changed…
You’ll need to survive and find out what’s going on and what happened to the crew. Sometimes the hostiles can be taken out, but most of the times the best strategy is to run and hide.

The game is played in first person view. While exploring, the player can pick up and interact with objects like doors, keypads, computer consoles, drawers, machinery, etc and use weapons (both melee and long range).
The enemy units are powerful and numerous, which means that the player must be stealthy and evade combat when possible. There are weapons aboard the ship, but ammo is very limited.

● Claustrophobic horror: the action takes place inside a spaceship. There are countless horrors inside, both physical and psychological.
● Fight or hide: there are weapons on the ship, but not enough ammo to take everyone out. Use them wisely.
● Engaging storyline: nothing is what it seems. Something very bad happened aboard the ship, and it’s up to you to find out what’s really going on.
● Reactive enemies: they’ll follow noises and investigate any disturbances.
● Interactive scenario: there’s plenty of exploration to do inside the ship, and many things to discover.

There are plenty of Xbox One games to keep you busy this week and throughout the rest of Summer! Did you grab any of these new titles? Let us know down in the comments below!
