Update will be live on all platforms Wednesday, September 15, 2021.

EXO F.A.R.M. Event

Grab your fellow Astroneers and use your expertise to assist EXO Dynamics in the Fuel Acquisition, Renewal & Maintenance event! Seasonal Sturdysquash have sprouted in the solar system and it’s up to you to cultivate and harvest them. Combine their valuable produce inside unique Cauldrangea plants to create valuable biofuel to send to EXO. 

EXO Dynamics rewards biofuel contributions with:  

Useful incremental rewards are included along the way to bolster your harvesting capabilities. Randomized recurring rewards are available after completing the event – including QT-RTGs & EXO Chips! – for those who want to continue to produce biofuels. 


Proximity Repeater 

A new activation item is available in the Catalog. Unlike other sensors and repeaters, the Proximity Repeater activates all items within its radius instead of requiring the use off segment pins. This makes it great for quick automation setups, or in cases where wired connections aren’t practical, such as planting seeds, scanning research items, or bulk packaging and unpackaging. 

Trade Platform Updates 

The Trade Platform has received an overhaul to expand its capabilities – it also has a new look! 

Tutorial Removal 

The tutorial is no longer available and cannot be accessed from the Main Menu. 

The Achievement/Trophy “EXO Dynamics Training Seal of Approval” is now rewarded on completion of the mission “Printing Up”. This has no effect on players who already earned this. 

Previously completing the “Printing Up” mission before this update will not unlock the Achievement/Trophy.  If you did not unlock the Achievement/Trophy for “EXO Dynamics Training Seal of Approval” by completing the tutorial, you would now need to complete the “Printing Up” mission to unlock it, even if you had previously done the mission before this update. This may require starting a new Adventure game. 

Astropedia Update 

A new Astropedia page has been added explaining Damage, Respawning, and Retrieving Supplies. 

Tether Toppers 

Fall harvest-themed decorations now automatically adorn your tether posts. Enjoy festive, glowing gourds as you trot across the landscape! 

Steam Cloud Saves 

Steam Cloud Saves have been enabled allowing users to back up 10,000 files or 1GB (Whichever occurs first) 

Due to how cloud saves are handled users must choose to upload or delete mismatch save data, there is currently no option to merge the cloud with your local saves if they differ. Saves with the same name could cause a conflict, we recommend giving each save a unique name prior to uploading files to the cloud. Check out the Steam Cloud FAQ here.

Save data will be checked upon launch and uploaded to the cloud after exiting the game 

Uploaded cloud saves can be viewed and downloaded online after signing into the Steam webpage and navigating to this address:
