Following a massive update to the Early Access version of the title, players will be able to dive into a new demo of ROCKFISH GAMES’ Everspace 2 starting today.
With this demo, players will be able to see a sizable portion of Everspace 2’s first star system. It will provide access to the first five main missions, two side missions and a number of random encounters. Every asteroid field and outlaw base in the first sector of the Ceto system will be included, and save games will carry over to the Early Access version. Note that the demo’s player level is capped to level five.
According to Michael Schade, CEO and co-founder of ROCKFISH Games:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“As a 100% self-funded veteran indie dev, maximum transparency with our fans has always been at the very center of our communication. As said many times before, we have a super strong vision about the game our team is passionate about making, and we’re fully committed to the promises we made in our Kickstarter campaign. However, we understand that making an arguably insanely pretty space game that borrows from various iconic space shooters as well as some of the most popular open-world ARPGs and looter-shooters might create expectations way beyond what’s within our budget and our capabilities as an indie studio of 20ish developers plus a handful of highly-talented external contractors. So, even though we have hosted over 90 weekly gamedev and community streams on our Twitch and YouTube channels where we always show the latest EVERSPACE 2 dev build live in action and answer all sorts of burning questions from our community, we understand that the space devil can be in the space details for some hardcore space sim aficionados. Hence, we’ve decided to release a new demo that is 100% based on the most recent Early Access version so that every space pilot on the fence about pulling the trigger can check out our work without any strings attached.”[/testimonials]
