The unofficial Linux beta of space shooter EVERSPACE [Steam] has been updated again, this time it brings in an updated Unreal Engine 4.17 and bug fixes.

Sounds like getting this update out has been a bit of a pain for them dealing with SDL2 issues inside Unreal Engine, so it's really pleasing to see them not give up with it. 

On top of an upgraded Unreal Engine 4.17, they also put in "fixes for the collisions for station turrets, the ancient warden teleportation, an issue with operating the gunship turret after cutscene playback, a fix for the blueprint progression in hardcore mode and a fix for the admiral mission".

You can see their post about it here on Steam.

Hopefully there's not much left before they can advertise it officially, as it really does work quite nicely for me. Easily one of my favourite space shooters. Either way, it's a damn fun game and they're a developer worth supporting for their continued efforts to get the Linux version as good as possible.

Skimmed through the Linux "changelog" on Steam, it seems some people are experiencing control issues. I'll patiently wait until they polish it a bit more and release it on GOG, then it's party time.

Looks great. I will buy it, as soon as Linux support is officially there.

gustavoyaraujoIt stills use a lot of RAM here. Almost 8GB just for start the game.
I'm hoping they are going to fix this soon.

Is this still the case after a second game start?
On Deus Ex I always had the issue where the game exceeded my 8GB ram on the very first start.
After closing and starting it again, it took much less.

slaapliedjeDoes it work in VR yet? Pretty sure this one has VR support in Windows

Yes, at least the last time I tried it. I haven't gotten around to re-installing and trying it again with this new version after I reinstalled my system.

I'll try it and see if it still works, and report back.

I didn't have any luck getting it up and running in VR today, unfortunately (like beniwtv, I had success with previous builds).

Unfortunately, like @Cheeseness reported, the game seems to crash in VR with this version
Both in OpenGL and Vulkan modes.

I don't think there is a point to worry about VR, until OpenXR is ready anyway.
