The sci-fi mystery game The Station has now been released on PC and consoles with a new launch trailer that shows off the deep space exploration.
A game that's available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam, The Station puts players aboard a fitting setting in a distant space station that originally housed a crew with the goal of studying a mysterious alien civilization. Communications with the crew went dark though, and it's up to the player to figure out what's happened in space and how the situation will be resolved.
"How would you react if we discovered a sentient alien civilization, challenging everything we know about biology, chemistry, physics, religion and answering the questions man has asked throughout history?" a description from the YouTube video read. "But what if this sentient alien civilization was discovered in a state of civil war? Determining that the rewards outweigh the risks, an undetectable space station with a small three-person crew deploys to research the alien culture in search of a means towards a peaceful relationship. Unable to contact the crew, a recon specialist is sent to uncover what happened. What players discover will challenge their view of surveillance, imperialism and moral law."
Over on the game's Steam page, a more detailed list of gameplay features was provided.
