EVERSPACE 2 from ROCKFISH Games is ready to properly blast off on April 6th and it's looking mighty fine. I've been quite excited about seeing this one completed and I'll be taking a good look around the release or shortly after.
They've also said they're planning to release a free content update in the second half of 2023, and their team is also working on a major expansion for mid-2024. See the new trailer below:
For those of you waiting on the Native Linux version they said this:
Linux (and Mac) support are still on track, with the aim to deliver this as close to the full release as possible.
From the press release:
“EVERSPACE 2 has been, by far, our biggest and most ambitious project at ROCKFISH Games and a true labour of love over the five years it’s been in development, the last two of which in Early Access,” says ROCKFISH Games CEO Michael Schade. “With our release date revealed, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel where our amazing community and players all over the world new to the series will get to experience this adventure full of exciting, white-knuckle space combat and beautiful handcrafted deep space and planetside locations to explore. We’ve invested a hefty eight-digits budget into creating the game we’ve always wanted to make, and the team is now hard at work finaling and polishing all of our launch day content to perfection. Beyond the final chapter of the EVERSPACE 2’s story, there’s still a lot to see!”
While it's currently in Early Access, they will be raising the price. So if you've been after it waiting for the full release keep in mind the price will go up to $49.99 / £44.99 / €49.99 on February 20th.
