Remember Xbox Game Previews? Well, the early access program has officially come to Xbox Series X|S with the arrival of Spacebase Startopia, as announced by Kalypso Media and Realmforge Studios.

The space station management sim is available today and even comes with a free trial for anyone who wants to dip their toe in before committing. Alongside it being the first Game Preview game to come to the Xbox Series X|S, it's also available on Xbox One and PC for £44.99, with Kalypso Media offering a 10% discount if purchased through its store. Its full release is expected sometime in Spring 2021.

"SPACEBASE STARTOPIA captivates with its original mixture of economic simulation and empire building strategy paired with classic RTS skirmishes and a good dose of humor.

In addition to the challenging single player Campaign and the versatile battle mode, there are also competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes for up to four players. And as if maintaining the three Space Station Decks, entertaining the eight Alien races and defending against enemy invaders were not enough of a challenge, the dynamic narrator AI is not going to mince matters and commentates the events in a lovely but sharp-tongued manner."
