Genesis Alpha One
PS4™ & XONE™ – US, EU & AU
Team 17 and Radiation Blue announced their unique first-person roguelike space exploration shooter, Genesis Alpha One, way back in 2017. After a year, Team 17 revealed that players can get their hands in the game in the summer of 2018. However, a few months after the announcement, Team 17 had to push back the release date of the upcoming game to January 2019.
Nevertheless, the developer had been very transparent about the cause of the delay. Here’s what they had to say:
We’re letting you know today that we’ve taken the decision to delay the release of Genesis: Alpha One to January 2019, to continue balancing, polishing and fine-tuning the game. We appreciate that many of you will be disappointed with this news, however, we believe that this is the right decision and will ultimately deliver a better game into the hands of our players.
Moreover, the company shared some of the few interesting features that their hardworking team is working on. See it below:
Extended Crew Features
You’ve asked for more options in the ways you can interact with your crew, and we’re very excited to confirm that we’re working on this. As captains, you will have more options on how you interact with and deploy your crew, giving you more gameplay options and greater tactical depth whilst you carry out your mission.
Improved Alien behaviours
Adding in different behaviours and characteristics for aliens in the game. Creating more challenges both on planets and with ship infestations requiring a more in-depth tactical approach.
There’s a lot to learn with Genesis, and we would not want to send you to quadrant Alpha One without any training!
A whole bunch more!
From ship customizations through to things to discover on Planets there are a raft of other features that we will be including.
In addition, the company released a video that shows the new release date of Genesis Alpha One. You can watch it below.

But, what is the game all about? Genesis Alpha One is a sci-fi roguelike first-person shooter that takes place in the decaying planet Earth ravaged by wars, corrupt regimes and global capitalism left unchecked that resulted in natural resource over-exploitation and pollution. Fortunately, there are still four remaining influential corporations on Earth who initiated the Genesis program. Follow the role of an interstellar pioneer who will act as the Captain of a Genesis starship.
Embark on a journey to the uncharted space and get yourself ready to succeed on your ultimate mission. “Find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction.” Build and manage a space vessel, farm resources, deal with terrifying alien infestations, clone creatures and explore a vast, randomly generated universe.
Build, battle, clone, and survive. Are you ready for your interstellar journey into the uncharted space, Captain?
Genesis Alpha One is coming out on January 29, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on the Epic Games Store. Pre-order for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game are available here at Playasia. Reserve your copies now!
Enjoy the trailer, features, and screenshots for the game below.
- Build – Gather necessary resources and upgrade your starship with crew quarters, workshops, hangers, clone labs and much more
- Battle – Combat alien infestations with an arsenal of weapons and defense systems
- Clone – Take DNA from aliens and splice them with members of your crew to create new clones with advanced abilities
- Survive – Should disaster fall upon the captain, a new crew member assumes the role. But each loss brings extinction one step closer
Genesis Alpha One looks like a hella cool upgraded Dead Space and I'm all for it.

Is Genesis Alpha One, from the #indiedev Radiaton Blue, the lighter version of #Doom and a more brutal version of #NoMansSky? 🤔🤔🤔
