has anyone been able to play it on windows 10?

I have been trying for the last hour to work out how to update to 1.0 on windows. Updated and played fine on xbox but windows still launches the last game preview version and does not seem to want to update.

Found the answer at least for me ( which I think is absurd ) Even though we have windows 10 looking at the game requirements it needs at least windows 10 ver 17763.0 which came out in October. Now for some reason even though I have windows set to auto update and also check every day to make sure windows is actually checking , looked when I powered on and saw the last check for updates message with todays date. No sign of any update for windows.

Maybe 15 presses of the check for updates button and suddenly it decides now to download an update. Finished that and opened the MS store to check for updates and finally its deciding to download as my windows version is now high enough.

Bonkers that it wont install on an almost up to date version of windows , when the steam version is happy no matter what.

I have the same issue.. I've had Astroneer on PC for ages but it's no longer showing as playable (but is showing as installed). Is there some sort of issue going on with the PC store version of it?

 

I can play it on the Xbox One X just fine (where the framerate struggles), but really want to crank it on PC.

Unfortunately, 1.0 requires the Windows October 2018 update. You have to be on version 1809.  If you update Windows to the latest version people have said the game installs and works.

I really hope this is just a store publishing error -- I'm not ready to install 1809.

I'm playing the game and I'm on windows 1803. I've not updated to 1809 yet. Game works fine for me.

And you're running 1.0 purchased from the Windows Store and not Steam?

Ah, my bad. Sorry. I purchased thru Steam. I'll shut up now.
