New EVERSPACE 2 star system comes with new story
The first update, scheduled for spring, adds a third light fighter subclass, improved creation, trading and resource gathering/processing, new equipment, new story content, new perks and more challenges. This update will also include user interface and text language support for German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Czech, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese and Korean so the EVERSPACE 2 international community can join in the fun .
This summer, EVERSPACE 2 will receive its biggest update, adding the massive Drake Star System to the list of areas that daring pilots can explore. Set in a cluster full of natural extremes, three opposing factions struggle for dominance over the rich resources of the Drake system. Pilots will have to keep a low profile so that they don't get caught in the crossfire and, at the same time, don't become victims of the hostile environment. New planetary locations present new dangers – players will have to avoid lava geysers on Planet Mota and dive deep to find underwater treasures on water planet Gilbert, among other exciting and deadly locations to come.
The autumn update will also feature a lot of endgame content. Daring pilots will be able to venture into Ancient Rifts, where they will face new challenges while hunting for legendary gear. These cracks will feature high risk/reward mechanics known for popular marauder titles, but with a twist in space.
