Rogue-lite space sim is available along with Encounters DLC.
Rogue-lite arcade space sim Everspace has been making the rounds for a while on Xbox One and PC. It’s now available for PlayStation 4 though as Everspace Stellar Edition and costs $39.99. Along with the base game and Encounters DLC, it brings the soundtrack and a dynamic PS4 menu theme. Check out the launch trailer below.
Michael Schade, CEO of Rockfish Games, stated that, “We are incredibly proud of releasing our very first title for PlayStation, and we couldn’t be more excited that space game enthusiasts on PS4 can now join the ranks of over half a million space pilots already exploring the vastness of Everspace on PC and Xbox.
“Now PS4 players can experience the unique blend of roguelike game mechanics, exploration, storytelling, and fast-paced combat all set within a beautiful procedurally-generated fantasy sci-fi environment, too. And on PS4 Pro, they can even enjoy it in 4K or with improved visuals and at a higher framerate in Full HD”.
It’s also possible to pick up the base game for $29.99 and the Encounters DLC for $9.99 separately. Furthermore, Rockfish will be working with Limited Run Games to release Everspace Galactic Edition this Summer. Retailing for $39.99, it will include the Stellar Edition along with The Making of Everspace, a 28 page booklet.
Everspace isn’t your typically space sim title. Exploring space and various sectors, finding different factions to align with and new weapons to equip, the game will return to the beginning if you die. However, you can embark on a new “run” with some long-term upgrades that can be made. Encounters adds new questlines, factory space stations for upgrading mid-run and a new ship along with new devices and consumables.
