ROCKFISH CEO Lauds the Community
“We couldn’t be more grateful for the glowing support from our community. We’ve seen a lot of enthusiasm right from when we pitched the first EVERSPACE instalment as a new breed of space combat and exploration for PC and consoles during our first Kickstarter campaign in 2015.”Michael Schade, CEO & co-founder of ROCKFISH Games
“Thanks to EVERSPACE’s commercial success as a surprise hit with over two million copies sold, we were able to take a big leap forward and reach out again to our most loyal fans through Kickstarter to pitch EVERSPACE 2 as a full-blown open-world space looter shooter.
With today’s Early Access release, we’re delivering on that promise as a first taste of what we envision to create together with our fans over the next 12 to 18 months. Hands down, we couldn’t be more excited about getting feedback from avid space pilots all around the globe.”Michael Schade, CEO & co-founder of ROCKFISH Games
Become Adam Roslin
In EVERSPACE 2, players continue the story of Adam Roslin, a cloned military space pilot. Players will experience Adam’s journey as he learns what it means to transition from a clone with unlimited lives, yet persistent memories, and to become a unique individual where death has real consequences.
Adam’s journey will be shaped through meaningful relationships with interesting companions as he discovers that life is only worth-living if there is also something worth dying for.
Taking place a few years after the events of the original title, players will now be able to freely explore several star systems in the EVERSPACE universe.
Featuring new RPG-like levelling systems, quests, craftable equipment, and companion perks, EVERSPACE 2 is the open world looter shooter fans of the genre have been waiting for many years.
EVERSPACE 2 can be purchased on Steam here and on GOG here. The full version for PC, including Mac and native Linux support, will be released at a reasonably increased price in the first half of 2022 and come with UI and text language support for German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
