With the release of its most recent patch out of the way, Everspace 2 developers Rockfish Games have rolled out its roadmap for development of the Early Access space shooter in 2021. The new features in the pipe include new ship sub-classes for the player, as well as new activities in various parts of the game world. Further, the game's main story will be added to, which is something that the developers weren't previously planning to do.
The first update, this spring, will have a light fighter equipped for speed and defensive reconnaissance, as well as a heavy fighter-bomber specializing in missiles and mines. That will also have the new story missions. A summer update will include a new system with new enemies, as well as increase the player level cap. The fall update will introduce two more fighter types, as well as a new region and fast travel.
