ROCKFISH Games released its space action indie project, Everspace, on May 26, 2017 for PC—via Steam and GOG—and Xbox One alongside some details about the game’s future expansions.
After nine months of availability in Steam Early Access and Xbox Preview, Everspace has finally received a full release for PC and Xbox One. As the game gains momentum with the full release, ROCKFISH Games has confirmed the title will receive ongoing support in the form of extensions (expansions), as well as a release for PlayStation 4 in Q3 2017. With the PlayStation 4 release, all platforms will be given access to the Hardcore Mode—which features perma-death for players who like a challenge after having beaten the game repeatedly. In addition, ROCKFISH Games reports the team will be adding more ships, weapons, and devices for players to add to their arsenal. A story expansion featuring new characters will be added in the future as well.
