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.

Easily the most annoying part of the otherwise super-high quality original. If the open world is done well (easily the hardest thing in all-space-dom), this will be a real gem. Absolutely will back.

That last scene... planetary battles? Now we're talking! Wishlisted, of course.
