Everspace 2 2022 Roadmap Now Available
The Everspace 2 2022 Roadmap is out now for fans to check out. The devs have some more work to do before the 2023 launch, but they have done a great job so far, and I’m excited to see what the game becomes this year.
Michael Schade, CEO and co-founder of Rockfish Games had this to say:
“After over three years of hard work, EVERSPACE 2 had a rocket launch Early Access release topping the global Steam charts in January, selling three times more copies than the predecessor within the first week. The game hit 91% positive reviews right out of the gate, and, after two major content packs, is now sitting at 93% positive reviews. But the best is yet to come! We’ll be pushing hard with an ambitious 2022 roadmap to maintain the top position within the space combat & exploration genre and deliver a rock-solid product at full release in early 2023.”
The first update scheduled for spring is set to bring a third light fighter subclass, improved crafting, trading, and resources gathering/processing, new equipment, new story content, new perks, and more challenges. This update will also include UI and text language support for German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Czech, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean so the international Everspace 2 community can join in the fun.
The summer update is set to be the largest update yet according to the Everspace 2 2022 Roadmap. It will add the massive star system Drake to the list of areas daring pilots can explore. Set in a cluster filled with natural extremes, three opposing factions fight for dominance over the rich resources of the Drake system.
Pilots will have to keep a low profile to not be caught in the crossfire while also not becoming a victim to the harsh environment. New planetary locations introduce new hazards—players will have to avoid lava geysers on Planet Mota and dive deep to find underwater treasures on the water planet Gilbert amongst other exciting, and deadly, locations that are to come.
The autumn update will bring about just a bit of the endgame. Daring pilots will be able to venture into Ancient Rifts where they’ll face all-new challenges as they hunt legendary equipment. These rifts will feature high-risk/reward mechanics known from popular looter titles, but with a twist in space.
