'EverSpace 2' Reveals Drake: Gang Wars Early Access Update, Coming Soon - Trailer

by Rainier on June 24, 2022 @ 12:57 p.m. PDT

In contrast to the roguelike concept of its predecessor, EverSpace 2 is an open-world space shooter with classic RPG elements and persistent player progression, as well as a much larger number of player ships and significantly enhanced storytelling.

Set in a persistent open world, it is driven by a captivating sci-fi story that picks up shortly after the events of its predecessor, but instead of the previous roguelike game mechanics, the focus in EverSpace 2 will be on open world gameplay combined with classic RPG elements and extended storytelling. 

Thanks to the expanded perks and a brand new class-based player ship system with dozens of models, players can also fully customize their spaceship to their individual playing style with weapons, plating, and equipment, similar to classic RPG character development. Despite all the innovations, EverSpace 2 remains true to its space shooter core and presents fast-paced space action in the well-known EverSpace style.

The story of EverSpace 2 continues from its predecessor, as you continue the story of Adam Roslin, one of the surviving cloned military space pilot. The player is faced with the remnants of his past: the cloning program has been canceled, the colonial authorities have placed a bounty on him,

Players will experience Adam’s journey as he learns what it means to transition from a clone with unlimited lives, yet persistent memories, so now that dying means the ultimate death the search for the meaning of life suddenly takes on a whole new importance. Adam’s journey will be shaped through meaningful relationships with interesting companions as he discovers that life is only worth-living if there is also something worth dying for. Fate, however, has big plans and soon the player discovers what it means to evolve from a former military clone to a truly real person.

EverSpace 2 not only creates a powerful gaming experience, but also one that is visually impressive in the beautiful infinity of space where breathtaking cinematic scenery invites - encourages - exploration.

In celebration of this year’s Steam summer sale, ROCKFISH Games has shared a tease for the upcoming EverSpace 2 update — Drake: Gang Wars

“While we’re sitting close to fantastic 90% positive reviews on Steam even before hitting v1.0, we’re aware that there are several big-budget space games in production,“ says Rockfish CEO and Co-Founder Michael Schade. “Other iconic titles have also improved constantly over the years — to all of this we say: Challenge accepted!”

Drake: Gang Wars is the largest content update for EverSpace 2’s Early Access and, very soon, space genre enthusiasts and fans will get a look at new locations and a whole lot more via the full trailer. If they don’t already have Everspace 2, they can change that via the Summer Sale which runs to July 7th.

For any who want a sneak peak, Erik, ACE pilot and community ambassador, will be taking the first trip to one of the new locations in the all-new Drake ship. Tune in to YouTube or Twitch at 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm CEST / 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT / 11:00 am to 1:00 pm PDT.

EverSpace 2 is currently available through Steam Early Access, Xbox Game Pass for PC and GOG Games in Development for $39.99 / €37.99 / £31.99.

EverSpace 2 is coming to PC (Windows, Mac, Linux), Xbox and PlayStation in early 2023, and comes with UI and text language support for German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
