EVERSPACE Hits Steam Early Access & GOG; Will Debut on Xbox One & Windows 10 Game Preview Later This Month
Funded via Kickstarter and developed by German studio ROCKFISH Games (founded by the creators of the Galaxy on Fire mobile series), EVERSPACE will also be released on Xbox One & Windows 10 Game Preview later this month with support for the Xbox Play Anywhere program.
Michael Schade, CEO and co-founder of ROCKFISH Games, said:
We have been working closely with our fans since our Kickstarter in August 2015 and we are super excited to eventually launch EVERSPACE through Steam and GOG.com. It comes with over 300 new features, tweaks and bug fixes, largely based on community feedback since the initial Alpha release and we look forward to keep working closely with our fans to make EVERSPACE as exciting and long-lasting as we can.
The full release is scheduled for the end of Q1 2017 and it will add a non-linear, fully voice-acted story with several thoughtfully designed characters, situation-based events, as well as the Hardcore Mode (with permadeath) and full VR support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive; price will be increased to $/€ 39.99 at that point. The game will also get two additional player ships: The Colonial Scout, much smaller than the current Colonial Interceptor, will feature extreme maneuverability and a higher top speed but a weaker hull. The Colonial Scout also comes with a cloaking device and sniper weapons as starting gear. The upcoming Colonial Gunship will be the slowest of the three space ships but will compensate through a much stronger hull and an upgradable turret on top.
