Following its huge success on PC, EVERSPACE 2 has now touched down on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, garnering over 1,111,111 Game Pass players and selling tens of thousands of console copies in its launch month alone.

The launch isn’t just about the numbers. It’s a testimony to the love and dedication the developers have put into the game. Michael Schade, CEO of ROCKFISH Games, reflects on the success:

There is nothing quite like seeing the space game genre have a massive resurgence. Our intention was to create an accessible pick-up-and-play arcade-style space adventure game. It’s clear that EVERSPACE 2 is resonating with space pilots all over the globe.

EVERSPACE 2 updates and enhancements

But wait, there’s more. Today, the universe of EVERSPACE 2 is expanding with a massive free update. Players can look forward to new set items, perks, equipment modifiers, and a plethora of community-requested features. For those into aesthetics and sounds, the game now boasts new customization options, an updated music list, and, excitingly for Apple aficionados, macOS support.

Michael Schade continues,

This year has been the biggest ever in our genre, and EVERSPACE 2 is among the highest-rated space games released on all platforms within it. Today’s update is a great way to double-down on this success, with even more exciting content lined up for next year.
