Everspace is a roguelike space combat game that released a few years ago (and which happens to be on sale for under $5 on Steam right now (opens in new tab)), and off the back of its success and a well-funded Kickstarter campaign, developer Rockfish Games is making an even bigger open-world space RPG with Everspace 2. We saw a new trailer earlier this year at the PC Gaming Show (opens in new tab).
If you've got any questions about Everspace 2, here's your chance to ask: The developers at Rockfish are directly responding to PC Gamer reader questions in an AMA forum thread (opens in new tab) this week.
The AMA is part of a series of Everspace 2 posts that you can find in the Studio Spotlight section of the PC Gamer forums (opens in new tab), where Rockfish has also posted a deep dive into the story of Everspace and Everspace 2 (opens in new tab) (with a bunch of concept art), an exclusive video (opens in new tab), and a giveaway you can enter (opens in new tab) for a chance to win an Aurora R10 Lunar Light gaming PC with a Ryzen 5 3500 and a Radeon RX 5600, plus accessories and a copy of Everspace 2 when it's out. That's a lot of space, folks.
The new video, which you can watch in this post (opens in new tab), gives us a look at the stuff we'll be doing outside of combat in Everspace 2, like sorting through weapons, customizing our ship, selecting perks, admiring our stats, and other things that take place in menus. The interface looks more-or-less streamlined, and I get the impression we'll be spending a good amount of time comparing laser stats.
Rockfish plans launch Everspace 2 in Early Access on Steam late this year.
