After ROCKFISH Games landed a surprise hit on PC and consoles with its studio debut EVERSPACE, the independent developer from Hamburg has announced the official successor, EVERSPACE 2, at gamescom: Opening Night Live.
In contrast to the roguelike concept of its predecessor, EVERSPACE 2 is an open-world space shooter with classic RPG elements and persistent player progression, as well as many more player ships and significantly enhanced storytelling. EVERSPACE 2 has a planned Steam Early Access release in late 2020 with the full version arriving on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the end of 2021.
EVERSPACE 2 will clearly surpass and outperform its predecessor in terms of both audiovisual quality and scope, which is reflected in the significantly higher development budget. ROCKFISH Games plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign on September 9, 2019 with a funding goal of €450,000 for EVERSPACE 2.
After the world premiere at gamescom, ROCKFISH Games will present EVERSPACE 2 at Pax West in Seattle from August 29 to September 2 and at TwitchCon in San Diego from September 27 to 29.
