EVERSPACE is probably one of my absolute favourite space shooters from the last few years, so I'm extremely excited to see EVERSPACE 2 be announced and confirmed for Linux.

For the Linux confirmation, I reached out on Twitter where the developer replied with "#Linux support scheduled for full release in 2021!".

It shall be continuing to use Unreal Engine, with a release on Steam first in Early Access next year. So while we won't be getting the early builds, we will at least see it at the final release which is awesome. Take a look at their trailer for it:

A key different between this and the first game, is that it's ditching the rogue-like die and repeat mechanics. Instead, it's going to be a full open-world exploration based story experience. Seems the combat it going to be very much like the original though, which makes me happy as it was intense!

Get ready to open your wallets, as they need a bit of funding. They're going to be heading to Kickstarter on September 9th.

Even though it's nowhere near finished, I think it looks pretty incredible.

You can now wishlist and follow it on the Steam page.

Nice! Still a long way away though. Even though the Linux port for this should be easier than the first one, I hope they leave it in for all that time. If they do, I'm there!

Awesome!
Though the game did get a bit stale after a while, before that it was a blast to play.
Might give it another go in a while.

It's nice to see Linux games with really nice graphics like this!

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I caution that this could become an Epic exclusive. I don't know if using the Unreal engine increases that potential or not.

Nice - this is much more appealing to me than the rouge-like element.
And given the first one still was fun to play, part two should be awesome ^^

Sure buy.

Very welcome change! Looking forward to DRM-free Linux release. I'll back it if they'll crowdfund it with GOG release pledge.
