Starbound: new screens show new ice environment, armour colours

Starbound developer Chucklefish has released a new set of images into the wild, showing off more of its cosmic sandbox, including a new frozen biome and armour palette swaps.

The latest blog update from Chucklefish explains that armour can be dyed a wide range of colours, and discusses a new visual feature that sees other planets hanging in the sky off in the distance.

Shields have been given a lot of work at the studio, and can be equipped in either hand, and can be used to boost your armour stat, deflect projectiles and more. The team has also been working on new songs for the soundtrack, tweaking NPC behaviour and implementing new weapons.
