Hamburg-based indie developer ROCKFISH Games announce the DLC EVERSPACE – Encounters. Since the expansion is coming to Linux, Ubuntu, Mac and Windows. Which is a major expansion, adding over 10 hours of extra gameplay to the core game. While set to release on Steam and GOG.com at the end of October 2017.
So the Encounters expansion will feature a new player ship. Hence the Colonial Sentinel, a medium fighter class ship. Which will impress with some serious electronic warfare capabilities and a special shield. Featuring twice as much capacity as the standard model. Space pilots will also be able to use a plethora of new weapons. As well as 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. Offering special on-the-fly services, like refining and converting resources. Upgrading ship capabilities or minor repair jobs. Therefore, daring space pilots will even be able to pay the Okkar Homeworld a visit. Along their journey, they will also encounter new types of enemies and new story characters. These will also offer individual questlines.
So these are some marked additions to EVERSPACE. I have to admit, I’m looking forward to the games Encounters expansion. Since this offers a great deal more to my Linux, aka Ubuntu gaming.
Thanks to the roguelike core game loop in EVERSPACE. All pilots will bump into them sooner or later. Without having to finish the main story, first. Those who already beat the game entirely, will find a fresh motivation to get back into the game. All to find out what these characters are up to and unveil further secrets in the galaxy.
The EVERSPACE – Encounters expansion is coming late October 2017. The release is expected to debut on Windows and Mac. Yet the games perfectly playble on Linux and Ubuntu, despite the lack of icon.
Also, there is no confirmation at this point on price. So here’s hoping we also see a day-one release for the expansion.
