The last season of The Expanse just premiered on Amazon Prime, and for fans who want more of this universe after these final six episodes (and the books and novellas by James S. A. Corey, the pen name of authors Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham), we have good news for you — there will soon be an Expanse video game.

Check out the trailer of the game here, which premiered last night during The Game Awards:

Telltale Games, Deck Nine, and Alcon Entertainment are behind the video game adaptation, which is appropriately called The Expanse: A Telltale Series. The game will take place before the events of the show, and will have players taking on the role of Belter Camina Drummer.

Expanse actor Cara Gee, who plays Drummer on the television show, is reprising her role and voicing the character for the video game. Throughout the series, players will lead a ragtag scavenging crew on a ship called The Artemis as they search for treasure on the edges of the Belt — the asteroid ring where the Belters come from.  Players will get entangled in a violent mutiny along the way, explore locations beyond the Belt, and make crucial decisions that will impact the survival of The Artemis  crew. 

“Working with a fantastic IP like The Expanse is both daunting and thrilling,” Deck Nine COO Jeff Litchford said in a statement. “We wanted to pick a character and story that hadn’t already been told — one that players could really influence but that also stayed true to the books and series for the fans. The collaboration with Telltale has enabled us to bounce around ideas and approach things from the different perspectives each company brings to the adventure genre as we work to tell the best story possible.”

The game has just started production so no news yet when it will be available on PC and leading consoles. In the meantime, you can watch Season 6 of The Expanse on Prime Video, with new episodes dropping on Fridays.
