Bounty Hunter Update Now Available for Starbound

Chucklefish have finally released a major new update to their popular survival crafting game, Starbound.

Update 1.4, dubbed Bounty Hunter, focuses primarily on the new bounty hunting system. You can check out a trailer for the new update above.

This includes procedurally generated quests offered by the Peacekeepers that involve traveling around the galaxy to track down criminals, many of which will be found in small micro-dungeons. There’s also new rare enemy variants, new furniture sets, and tons of new items, gear, and weapons. You can read the full patch notes here.

Starbound is available on Windows PC, Mac, Linux (all via Steam and GOG), PS4, Vita, and Xbox One. The update is currently only available on Steam and GOG.
