I'm in love with EVERSPACE [Steam] and the Beta is running really quite nicely, so the news of an expansion has me rather excited.

Reminder: The current release is still in an "unofficial" launch state, while they work on issues. So it has no SteamOS icon. Don't let that stop you buying it though — it's awesome.

If you haven't seen it, I wrote up some thoughts here: Blowing everyone up in EVERSPACE, my thoughts

Here's the teaser of the new expansion:

The new expansion named 'Encounters' will include a new player ship Colonial Sentinel which will feature some interesting electronic warfare capabilities and a special shield. That's not all! There will be new weapons, devices and consumables to fool, distract, and defeat enemies in new ways.

Further expanding the game, they will include new factory space stations to find which will enable you to get special on-the-fly services like: refining and converting resources, upgrading ship capabilities or minor repair jobs.

You will also be able to visit the Okkar Homeworld, which sounds like fun!

It's scheduled for release at the end of October. Hopefully the Linux version will get support for it with the release, or soon after.

I won't buy it until it officially released.

I hope it performs well with GTX 1050.

This Soundtrack :)

Iirc they said in the Linux thread on the steam discussion page, that they were able to have the ports in sync. So getting the expansion might by easy. If they don't encounter new technical difficulties.

The trailer looks again awesome! Space-flamethrower... nice. Also the new player ship looks quite nice.

Need to play more though, still haven't finished a complete run yet.

Just bought EverSpace. Hope it works with Mesa 17.2.2!

Quoting: LeopardI hope it performs well with GTX 1050.

GTX960 on an old i7-3770 here and it rocks at very high! The 1050 is in the same performance range and should not be a problem.

Edit: Tested it on an MSI Workstation with Quadro M2200 that should be performing under the 1050 and it was awesome too!

Raven 7 Oct, 2017 awesome!! Anyone on the fence about it, buy it now! Think FTL, but more brutal, and you get to fly and fight. Plus it's beautiful to boot! GOTY for me

It's such a beautiful game but be WARNED you will spend SO much time in it unaware! I clocked more than 120 hours already and it didn't feel like it! While this game is not officially released for Linux, it runs much better than some "officially" supported games. Truly amazing work!
