By Kelly Packard, 13 days ago
Rockfish Games has teased a new spaceship, features and more for Everspace's upcoming "Encounters" expansion. Along with the announcement of the expansion, the developer has released a short video to show off the new content.


A Steam announcement from Rockfish describes the content in more detail:

A major expansion is approaching fast (scheduled for end of October [on Steam]). It will feature a new player ship, the Colonial Sentinel, a medium fighter class ship, which will impress with some sophisticated electronic warfare capabilities and a special shield, featuring twice as much capacity as the standard model. You will also be able to use a plethora of new weapons, devices and consumables to fool, distract, and defeat enemies in new ways.

All-new factory space stations add further gameplay mechanics to the game experience, by offering special on-the-fly services, like refining and converting resources, upgrading ship capabilities or minor repair jobs. Furthermore, you will even be able to pay the Okkar Homeworld a visit. Along your journey, you will also encounter new story characters, who will offer individual questlines.
v0.7 Screens

"Encounters" will makes it way to the Xbox version, which is also Play Anywhere with Windows 10, in February 2018. Pricing has not been announced yet.
