AGOS A Game of Space, With reveals like Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake and Immortals Fenyx Rising, a lot of Ubisoft’s Forward event on Thursday touched on stuff we’ve seen from the publisher before. But the company also had a couple of surprises up its sleeve. One of those was AGOS: A Game of Space.
Agos: A Game of Space casts players as the AI operating the very last ship to leave a condemned Earth in the year 2057, tasking them with carrying its crew of survivors on a centuries-long journey to find a new home.
That journey will span eight unique star systems, and players are able to explore each one using their own specially built probes that are governed by realistic physics. It’s a new VR space exploration title where you’ll play as an AI guiding survivors trying to find a new home away from Earth. Based on the trailer Ubisoft shared, much of the game involves piloting a probe. Think: SpaceX Crew Dragon simulator but in VR.

Along the way, you’ll be able to equip your probe with different components as you scavenge resources and find new technologies. It’s all set to music and cinematography that will remind you of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
You’ll have the chance to check out AGOS: A Game of Space on October 28th when it comes out on PC. Unlike most of Ubisoft’s recent titles, you’ll be able to grab this one on Steam since the Valve Index and HTC Vive are two of the VR headsets the game supports. It will also be available through the Oculus Rift Store.
Along the way, there are resources to harvest, ships to trade with, abandoned space stations to investigate and more, with progress unlocking new tools and technologies that will hopefully enable players to keep their human passengers alive.
Agos: A Game of Space could this be a heavily retooled version of Ubisoft’s presumed long-dead space exploration game Pioneer? – is preparing to launch on 28th October, and will be available on Steam, Uplay, and the Oculus Store.
