Rockfish Games unveils Everspace 2 at Gamescom 2019

Everspace 2 will release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in 2021 after it hits Steam Early Access next year.

German developer Rockfish Games surprised Gamescom opening night attendees with the debut trailer for Everspace 2, the sequel to the 2017 rogue-like space shooter.

The trailer features in-game footage from a pre-alpha build but already looks more polished and expansive than it’s predecessor. Judging from the trailer alone the sequel boasts a wider variety of ships, more diverse environments, mysterious space creatures, and the signature pulse-pounding dog-fighting that made the original game so engaging.

Rockfish Games promises more of the excellent story and gameplay elements from the first game while offering more expansive RPG-elements and an even more explorable open-world setting. There’s been no official word on multiplayer yet, but Rockfish seems adamant that this will be a single-player only experience.

Everspace flew under the radar in 2018 when it released on consoles, scoring a 9 out of 10 here at AiPT! for its intriguing narrative, rewarding life/death cycle, visually stunning procedurally generated environments, and absolutely exhilarating dogfights and flight sequences. It’s a rare gem of a game that will please fans of many genres and is a must-play for all sci-fi or space shooter fans.

Everspace 2 will release first on Steam Early Access in 2020 before it gets a full release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in 2021. For more information, check out this full Let’s Play demo from Gamescom 2019.
