Mech-Themed Farming Sim, Lightyear Frontier, Revealed At Xbox Games Showcase

Lightyear Frontier, an open-world farming game created by Frame Break and Amplifier Game Invest, was unveiled at Xbox and Bethesda’s 2022 Games Showcase. Set on an alien planet, Lightyear Frontier supports up to 4 players with online co-op. Players can grow crops using delightfully-futuristic methods while operating a giant mech, but farming isn’t the only activity available in Lightyear Frontier–the game encourages exploration and experimentation.

While traversing the game’s strange and beautiful homestead on an unnamed planet, players will stumble across a secret, implying the game has a story to tell. Still, the open-world farming sim is described as “peaceful” on its Steam page, so it’s unlikely that players will be using their mech suits to fight monsters in the middle of their freshly-watered marigold fields.

Though the game does not yet have a specific release date, it’s slated for a Spring 2023 launch, and will be available on Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on launch day. In the meantime, it can be added to Steam wishlists, and early access is expected to be announced soon.

This story is developing.
