Astrobase Command 0.4.9 Closed Beta Patch Notes

Hi everybody!

Here we go! The last beta update before launch!

It’s been a while since the last one so we’ve made a bunch of smaller changes and a couple of new features. The most important one allows those who need to, or just prefer to, use a different key layout to customize their key bindings.

As we mentioned in the release announcement blog post we have disabled sales of the game until release.

If you want to get the game, make sure that you have wishlisted Astrobase Command on Steam!
