We’ve just received the news that the team behind the hotly anticipated space-faring Everspace 2 are set to bring this gorgeous trip into the outer limits to PC via Steam Early Access and the GoG Games in Development program. Landing at a cost of €37.99 / $39.99 / £31.99 across both storefronts, Everspace 2 will strap players in for even more action than they might have experienced through beta’s and preview events last year. The Early Access form of the game will blast off into around 25 hours of gameplay as players blast their way through a hand crafted series of central story missions and side quests allowing you to take on and take down everything from fighters to huge capital ships in a mesmerizing display of firepower.
Sat in the cockpit of an advanced space fighter, you’ll experience professional voice acting for the first 12+ hours of the story campaign and several side missions which take place in the first two star systems of the final game. While this means that you’ll need to be comfortable with the initial English language arrival, the full version for PC, including Mac and native Linux support, will be released at a reasonably increased price in the first half of 2022 and come with UI and text language support for German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
That’s not the only add on that’s still to come, as Michael Schade, CEO & co-founder of ROCKFISH Games, noted during the news.
“The game is far from being finished. 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.”
