The team at ROCKFISH Games is partnering with Microsoft to bring EVERSPACE 2 to Game Preview on the Windows 10/11 Store through Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Michael Schade, CEO and co-founder of ROCKFISH Games, said the following:
“After our successful partnership launching the original EVERSPACE as an ID@Xbox title in Xbox Game Preview and bringing the game to Game Pass post full release, we’re thrilled to work again with our friends at Microsoft to bring even more fast-paced space shooter action to Windows 10 and Xbox platforms with EVERSPACE 2. The deal not only enables space pilots with Game Pass to jump in the cockpit early, but it also provides extra funding for our team to complete the story campaign as promised, really nail the endgame, and keep pushing the envelope on all platforms.”
Microsoft’s Chris Carla, Head of ID@Xbox, added:
“The ROCKFISH Games team has an exceptional track record of delivering visually stunning and addicting space shooters on all sorts of platforms for some fifteen years, and we’re excited to have their latest, highly-praised work coming to the Windows 10, 11 and Xbox platform. With best-in-class graphics, an engaging looter-shooter game loop, accessible space combat and exploration, tight controls for both keyboard + mouse and gamepad, plus the open development approach from a talented veteran team, EVERSPACE 2 is just a perfect fit for Xbox Game Preview and Xbox Game Pass.”
Khaït Nebula, the third major EVERSPACE 2 content update, will release on November 3 with an experimental release on Steam on October 22. The simultaneous full release on PC (Windows, Mac, Linux), Xbox, and PlayStation has been pushed to early 2023.
