Into the Stars has been exploring the cosmos since it first hit Steam Early Access back in July. While players have been scouring the galaxy for a new home for humanity for the past nine months, it's now time to do so in an official launch capacity, as Iceberg Interactive and Fugitive Games announced earlier this week that the game would exit the vacuum of Steam Early Access on March 4.

For those unfamiliar with Into the Stars, this is a space survival game created with Unreal Engine 4. The idea is to helm an inexperienced crew, searching for a safe place to call home. Various dangers lurk across each of the 90 zones in the star system. The journey is procedurally-generated, with new events popping up for each playthrough.

The game will also feature a soundtrack from Call of Duty and Mass Effect composer Jack Wall. This morning, iam8bit announced that a special vinyl soundtrack featuring Wall's music for Into the Stars would also release on March 4, which includes a 180-gram vinyl record and a digital soundtrack.

To get a better idea of what's coming, we've included the Early Access trailer and a second trailer pointing to some of the game's additions since July. Into the Stars launches on March 4, but those looking to get it a little early may want to do so now, since it's currently on sale over on Steam Early Access.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
