Arconauts is the name given to a select group of players in the Shattered Horizon community.

After the explosion on the Moon the survivors face a desperate fight for survival. Cut off from Earth by the countless fragments of debris in the Arc, only the strong will endure. As battle lines are drawn, the heroes of the ISS and MMC gather arms and go to war. Those who prove themselves the most skilled on this new and unfamiliar battle ground earn the title of Arconaut. Fearless, smart and deadly, Arconauts are renowned for their mastery of zero gravity combat and feared by all.

Arconauts are the most valued members of the Shattered Horizon community. Members get to play new levels and test new game features before they are made available to everyone else. Arconauts also have their own private forum to discuss upcoming plans for the game with the development team at Futuremark Games Studio. Arconaut membership is by invitation only and is currently limited to those who pre-ordered Shattered Horizon and selected "super-testers" from the beta.

Arconauts have access to an additional game through Steam called Shattered Horizon: Arconauts. This edition allows you to test new content and features.
