After two years, we are happy to announce that Oxygen Not Included is coming out of Early Access on May 28.

Features such as simulating disease, implementing a skill system, adding creature taming, logic gates, automation, duplicant scheduling, recreational facilities, as well as a menagerie of new creatures, biomes, official mod support, space travel, and more, have all been added to complete the experience.

Almost two million copies of the Early Access game has been sold since the game entered Early Access on May 18, 2017. The studio said they have “been amazed at how the community has taken the game and run with it.” The community indeed has been very active with creations such as AC/DC’s Thunderstruck opening built with logic gates, a 100-Duplicant challenge colony, and A Life in the Cycle short film that presents a retrospective of a 2000-cycle colony.

With the final Early Access update a host of new features are being introduced. There are three new biomes, new buildings, new creatures, and asteroid generation settings. Each playthrough will fresh and challenging. Managing the colonists and helping them dig, build, and maintain their subterranean asteroid base will be just as challenging as before as water, warmth, food, and oxygen are still needed to keep the colonists alive and more importantly happy.

Oxygen Not Included leaves Early Access May 28, 2019 on Steam. To celebrate this announcement the game is available at a 25% discount from April 16-18, 2019.
