Everspace 2 is a highly anticipated upcoming single-player looter shooter involving space combat and exploration. It will release as a Steam Early Access game and on GOG Games in the Development program on January 18, 2021.
Everspace 2 is the sequel to the 2017 hit by Rockfish Games, Everspace. It features space combat, exploration, mining, puzzle-solving, travelling, trading, itemization, crafting, ship customization, pilots, player and companion perks, and five different player ship subclasses.
The game will launch with over 25 hours of gameplay and professional voice acting in English. The early access version of Everspace 2 will also offer fully configurable HOTAS support and presets for popular Logitech and Thrustmaster joysticks hardware setups.
The game is currently priced at US$39.99 / £31.99 / A$59.00 and the team at Rockfish games plan to release the game in the first half of 2022 at an increased price. This will come with UI and text language support for German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
“Of course, the game is far from being finished,” says Michael Schade, CEO & co-founder of ROCKFISH Games. “On top of the two-star systems EVERSPACE 2 pilots will be able to explore in Early Access at launch, we plan to have four to six more as well as several additional player ship subclasses beyond the Interceptor, Sentinel, Striker, Gunship, and Scout at launch, to be gradually added on a quarterly basis.
In the final game, players will also be able to enjoy twice as much story content plus lots of worthwhile endgame activities. We look forward to working closely with our community over the course of the next 12 to 18 months to make an outstanding narrative-driven open-world space looter shooter.”
