Independent developer ROCKFISH Games is a new games studio based in Hamburg, Germany, which specializes in high-quality 3D video games for PC and console. Last year they launched the Kickstarter campaign for EVERSPACE, a roguelike space shooter and over 15,000 backers from all over the world supported them, making the game the most funded German video game on Kickstarter.
Recently they announced that EVERSPACE will hit Steam Early Access as well as the Preview Program for Xbox One and Windows 10 on September 14. The Unreal Engine 4-based space shooter will be the launch title for Xbox Preview Program on Windows 10. For the launch, a challenging showdown will be added to the final sector, which players can try to conquer after they have beaten the first six sectors. Later this year, two additional player ships with individual characteristics and different starting gear will be added, as well.
The full release is scheduled for Q1 2017 and will feature a fully voice-acted non-linear story with several thoughtfully designed characters and situation-based events, as well as the Hardcore Mode and full VR support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
EVERSPACE will launch for $29.99 / €27.99 / £22.99 and will cost $39.99 / €36.99 / £29.99 when it hits full release. For more information you can follow the official EVERSPACE pages on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
