Both areas will be ready for the early access launch in January 2021.
Rockfish Games’ Everspace 2 may have been delayed from its early access window (again) but it’s seemingly on course for January 2021. In the meantime, the developer has offered new details on some areas that players will explore. One of these is the Ruins of the Ancients, an end-game area with “extra hard challenges and the best loot in the game.”
Appearing in Everspace, the Ancients have unique structures on Cephas II, a moon in the Union system. The Ancients won’t appear in the early access release but there will be some of their ruins present. The developer even hints at the Ancients being “deeply connected to the established lore” of the game. We’ll have to see how that pans out in the sequel.
Another new area in Union is Prescott Starbase. Described as a “highly condensed version of an entire city floating in space,” players will encounter a shopping and entertainment area, a harbor district and a black market where freelancers ply their trade. Though it’s still a ways from being completed, Prescott Starbase can be explored when early access is live.
After its early access period, Everspace 2 will be available for PC players first with PS4 and Xbox One releases coming later. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
