Everspace 2 is a fast-paced single-player space shooter from Rockfish Games, launched via Kickstarter this month to raise the required €450,000 needed to take the sequel into production. As the name suggests the new game builds on the previous open world space shooter and will provide deep exploration, sophisticated RPG elements and an engaging sci-fi story. Check out the announcement trailer below as well as more details about the Kickstarter project.
The space RPG game will support Windows, Mac and Linux and will also be launched on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. “Set in a persistent open world, it is driven by a captivating sci-fi story, picking up shortly after the events of the predecessor. An approximately 20-hour-long campaign and various side missions will lead you into the endgame. Prepare yourself to beat the most vicious encounters, and master difficult challenges which will reward you with that juicy epic loot! “
The defendant team at Rockfish Games describe a little more about what you can expect from the open world space shooter. “Imagine a Hack & Slash Action-RPG with all the bells and whistles: classes, random loot, skills, talents, and more… but in space. Your ship is the hero in this adventure. Expand your private ship collection from a virtually endless supply of vessels composed of three main classes with several sub-classes and optimise your build to perfection. Cleverly combine modules, weapons, devices, and perks to fit your individual play-style and the current objective.”
Early bird pledges are now available from €5 and the game is expected to officially launch during September 2020.
