We're excited to announce the release of Starbound 1.4 - the 'Bounty Hunter' update!

In this update players can become bounty hunters, seeking out criminal gangs through missions and climb the ranks as they rebuild the Peacekeepers and restore law and order to the universe. There's also new elemental variants of many monsters, which have a rare chance to be encountered - if you see one be sure to capture it! In addition there's a ton of new furniture, objects, weapons, and fun new stuff - including drones, password keypad locks, a laser mining tool, and a sports car!

We've been working on this update for a long time, thanks so much for being patent while we took the time to get it just right! Here's an outline of all the changes;
