Open-world space action sim EVERSPACE 2 from ROCKFISH Games has shown off plenty of new footage across multiple events recently and it looks seriously shiny.
This sequel is expanding on basically everything from the first game, including throwing out the roguelike gameplay loop in favour of the open-world approach to let you really get into deep ship customization and combat in planetary atmosphere as well as space itself. Funded on Kickstarter in 2019 with €503,478 in funding, it's entering Alpha next week with Early Access due at the end of the year and Linux support is due with the final release in 2021.
Check out the new trailer below, shown off during the PC Gaming Show 2020:
It might already be my most anticipated release for 2021.
I'm a massive fan of space, spaceships and of course lots of explosions so EVERSPACE 2 is going to be a must-buy for me. Tons of ships and different styles, masses of loot to find and equip with all sorts of customization options on offer. EVERSPACE 2 sounds like it's going to be an incredible action-focused space adventure.
After you watch the trailer, if you decide that's not enough for you, the developer actually did quite a long gameplay demo with commentary on June 12 which you can see below. Gameplay starts around 9:10.
