As announced by Rockfish Games, Everspace 2 will start its closed alpha on June 15th on Valve's gaming platform Steam. The ambitious Hamburg developers have thus reached a further milestone on the way to the release of the space shooter, which - after a postponement - is to start in Early Access in December of this year. The game is available for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. 


Hamburg has a lot to offer: fresh rolls, the Kiez, a modern music temple - and well-crafted space shooter. The latter are called “Everspace”. After the extremely successful first work, the North German developer studio Rockfish Games is working intensively on the successor, which will now gradually go through several access phases. The closed alpha for PC Steam will start on June 15th, the closed beta for August, and Early Access will probably start at the beginning of December.
Rockfish had adjusted the timing to not include Triple-A titles like September cyberpunk 2077 or to compete with the loot shooter Outsiders.

Everspace 2: Varied “Planetary Combat”

The ambitious developers have you Focus firmly on the goal, despite Corona and the associated adjustments, such as working in the home office. The plans of Rockfish Games are ambitious for Everspace 2, the success of the debut would like to surpass it. The screenshots, gameplay sequences and trailers published so far show that the space shooter will not only be visually more impressive and larger, but also that it will also be much more detailed in terms of the RPG elements.

A new trailer was recently shown as part of the IGN show, which presents “planetary combat”:

Promising, this is how one could aptly describe what has been seen so far. This also applies to the battles near the planet's surfaces. With the start of the closed alpha of Everspace 2, players who have supported the RPG space shooter via Kickstarter will have around ten hours of content at their disposal - including some story content and the opportunity to explore the world.

Exciting: Pilots will also be able to try out their first boss fight. Players can reach the maximum level cap of ten during the first alpha phase. Initially, only the English language version is available, but there are plans for localization.
