Official Press Release

Major Expansion EVERSPACE – Encounters Coming to PC and Xbox One, Free 4K Support for Xbox One X

ROCKFISH Games announce EVERSPACE™ – Encounters, a major expansion for their popular roguelike space shooter, coming to PC end of October 2017 and to Xbox One, together with a free update featuring 4K support and improved graphics at 1080p for Xbox One X early February 2018.

Hamburg, October 5, 2017 – Hamburg-based indie developer ROCKFISH Games announce the DLC EVERSPACE™ – Encounters for PC and Xbox. The major expansion will add over 10 hours of extra gameplay to the core game, and be released on Steam and GOG.com end of October, this year. As the project has to be migrated to UE4.17 to support Xbox One X, it will hit the Xbox One family in early February, 2018, together with a free update of the core game, supporting 4K and improved graphics at 1080p on Xbox One X.

The expansion will feature a new player ship, the Colonial Sentinel, a medium fighter class ship, which will impress with some serious electronic warfare capabilities and a special shield, featuring twice as much capacity as the standard model. Space pilots will also be able to use a plethora of new weapons, devices and consumables to fool, distract, and defeat enemies in new ways.

All-new factory space stations add further gameplay mechanics to the game experience, by offering special on-the-fly services, like refining and converting resources, upgrading ship capabilities or minor repair jobs. Furthermore, daring space pilots will even be able to pay the Okkar Homeworld a visit. Along their journey, they will also encounter new types of enemies and new story characters, who will offer individual questlines.

Thanks to the roguelike core game loop in EVERSPACE, all pilots will bump into them sooner or later, without having to finish the main story, first. Those who already beat the game entirely, will find a fresh motivation to get back into the game and find out about what these characters are up to and unveil further secrets in the galaxy.
