Everspace 2 is an open-world space combat game developed and published by Rockfish Games. A sequel to the 2017's Everspace, the game was successfully funded through a Kickstarter campaign. The game's story is set somewhere in the deep space. The player takes the controls of a spacecraft and explores the vast universe, encountering other spacefarers and trading with them or reducing them to paced dust with the player's superior firepower. No one said that building a position among the stars has to be done politely. Aside from the main story, Everspace 2 features a multitude of sidequests to complete.
Everspace 2 was praised for its stunning visuals and engaging gameplay mechanics.
ES 2 follows closely in its predecessor's footsteps while also introducing mechanics of its own to entice both the veteran spacefarers and the series' novices. The core gameplay mechanics remain the same - the player controls a spaceship, travelling across an open-world environment of the vast universe. The key feature of ES 2 is upgrading the player's vessel. During their interstellar adventures, the player will encounter various places to find new elements to make their spacecraft even stronger. Increasing their ship's firepower will be crucial for the player's success in the game - not all space travellers will be friendly, and some might be outright hostile. Overwhelming them with superior weaponry will be crucial to a safe journey.
A fleet of your own
Another feature of Everspace 2 is fleet building. While the player can control only one ship at a time, they can build a stable of available vessels. The player can choose from three classes - Light, Medium, and Heavy - further divided into subclasses. Each ship works the best in different scenarios - heavy gunships are perfect for intense battles due to their armored hulls and superior weaponry, while light patrol ships compensate for low fire resistance with impressive agility. The player will have to decide which ship to choose for the task at hand.
The loot from thousands of worlds
The universe of Everspace 2 is enormous, and so is the amount of resources the player can find within. Some of them can be found through the exploration of worlds or space wreckages. Others obtained through completing tasks. But a certain type of loot can only be gained by trading with other spacefarers. The player may use the items they have to offer to upgrade their ships or sell them to other traders, who offer pretty coin for unique items.
The story of ES 2 is set shortly after the events of the previous game in the series. The sole surviving clone of EVERSPACE is now wanted for his illegal existence by the authorities. The only way for them to survive is to lay low and avoid trouble. A mundane job at a mining colony seems like a perfect choice, but not for long. With his identity discovered, the pilot must escape into the deep space. There, among the countless stars, they will find the meaning of life.
Everspace 2 was met with a positive critical reception. The reviewers praised the game's complex gameplay, with many improvements compared to the previous installment of the series. They also praised the game's visuals, which brought the vastness of the universe to life with stunning detail.
