What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The EVERSPACE™ Beta is already fully playable, balanced, and generally free of bugs. Over 10,000 players have been enjoying it since our Kickstarter in August 2015 and we believe we got a pretty solid space shooter in place already, but it is still lacking a few elements that we originally envisioned. Now, we would like to give everyone the opportunity to join in and get their hands on the game to help us create the best possible space shooter for you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Featuring the scope that we promised in our Kickstarter, we plan to release the full version some time in Q2 2017. Still, unexpected hurdles might occur during ongoing development or some ideas we had in mind might turn out to be not so good after all making us change the direction, postpone promised features or even drop them entirely.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Over the next months, we will gather feedback from our community and work with you to improve EVERSPACE™ wherever reasonable based on the budget and the resources at our disposal. Bear in mind that we are a fairly small team of 10 developers. We have been working together on space shooters for over ten years but major additions like real-time multiplayer simply are out of scope, at least for the time being.

These are the features that we plan to add over the next few months:
  • Dynamic cockpit displays for all player ships
  • A captivating non-linear fully voice-acted story featuring interesting and thoughtfully designed characters
  • Hardcore Mode with permadeath for die-hard roguelike fans
  • VR-Support for oculus Rift and HTC Vive

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of EVERSPACE™ is based on the Beta which was released on July 29, 2016. Since then, we have fixed most of the bugs reported by our backers, did some tweaks and added a few new features. The most notable changes since Beta are a more challenging boss fight, introduction of some voice-acted events as well as improved overall balancing. You can find the complete changelog on our forums:

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have been working closely with our fans since our Kickstarter in August 2015 and we will continue to do so. Just to give you an idea, the Early Access version comes with over 250 new features, tweaks and and bug fixes, largely based on community feedback since the initial Alpha release. You can follow the discussions on our forums and we would like to invite you to contribute as well:

Unfortunately we are unable to offer this update on Mac due to several severe issues that popped up after migrating to Unreal Engine version 4.14.

Update v0.4 in the works!

Dear Pilots,

It's been a while since you’ve heard from us, but we’re breaking the radio silence now. We recharged our batteries over the holidays and we’re ready to tackle the last remaining challenges that lie ahead of us before the full release. Because we had a couple of moving targets on the technical side of things, it was hard for us to announce anything concrete earlier this year.

However, a major task has been completed: we migrated the whole project to Unreal Engine 4.14, which enables us to simultaneously release all upcoming patches and the full version across all current platforms. We’re still waiting for NVidia/Epic to fix the major graphical glitch under Linux, but we will keep you posted on that.

Releasing simultaneously on Steam, GOG, Xbox, and the Windows Store is quite a task, particularly for a small team like us. Plus, we got several parties involved at the same time which makes communication even more challenging. We ask for your understanding if we area little less responsive than usual during our last few Milestones.

With all of that being said, we would now like to give you a sneak peek of what you can look forward to in our next major update, which is not that far away.

Derelict Colonial station wrecks: You will be able to explore the large wrecks of Colonial stations. Some security mechanisms like turrets, laser barriers, sentry drones, and secure doors are still intact. There may also be dangerous plasma discharges that will harm your ship and push it away. As you might have expected, there is a new type of precious loot hidden inside these wrecks...

Enhancements: Enhancements can be found in Colonial station wrecks, and work like runes that can be equipped before a run. Some give small bonuses to various ship stats, while others can change the playing style completely and have both positive and negative effects, e.g. “All enemies and loot are visible on the radar, but alien forces and warships arrive twice as early.”

Ship Colors: Ship colors can be collected just like blueprints by shooting down powerful enemies. Colors can be applied to any ship in the hangar, and you can change the look of the ship’s body and markings. The more colors collected, the more variations possible.

Alternative loadouts: Can be unlocked for each ship by reaching new sectors. There are two additional loadouts for each ship to unlock, changing the starting equipment drastically and thus allowing new playing styles, especially in the beginning of a run.

Gunship balancing: The Front Shield Generator is now available and even exclusive for the Gunship. Furthermore, its armor and energy core recharge rate was increased and a new device slot was added.

Of course, there is much more coming with this update but we'd like to keep some surprises for you.

That's all for now and thanks for bearing with us.


PS: You can find some fresh screenshots coming along with this news on Kickstarter.
