Everspace 2 Heads to Early Access Later This Month

Everspace 2

It’s time to venture into the vastness of space once again.

Rockfish Games, the team behind the space shooter game Everspace, has announced that Everspace 2 is headed into Early Access on January 18th. It lands on both Steam and the GOG Games in Development Program.

The team at Rockfish is incredibly excited to launch its new game and have shared a handful of information to get players excited. The Early Access version of the game will have around 25 hours of story including side missions. Players will be able to get a feel for all of its main gameplay mechanics such as crafting, ship customisation, mining, exploration and much more. Additionally, four to six more star systems, in addition to the two available in Early Access, will become available when the full game launches in early 2022.

We absolutely loved the first Everspace when we reviewed it back in 2017 and, as you can see from the Early Access trailer below, Everspace 2 is looking like it may well follow suit

Everspace 2 will become available on January 18th for PC, Mac and Linux for $39.99/£31.99. Early Access will only be in English for now, though the full version will include an additional eleven languages. Its price will increase from that initial cost when the full release comes out. The Early Access version will also include configurable HOTAS support and presets for certain joystick hardware.

You can wishlist the game on Steam and GOG right now. And check out the gorgeous trailer below.

Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling her cat Usagi and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
