RockFish Games' iconic space shooter Everspace is set to launch on PlayStation 4 this month, and players can now pre-order it. There are bonuses for those that do, from concept art to discounts. Pre-ordering the game will grant players an exclusive concept art theme, and for PS Plus subscribers, Everspace is discounted by 20%.

There's a base version, as well as a bundle which includes the game, the Encounters add-on, the Everspace soundtrack with over 60 tracks as well as the dynamic Everspace Menu and the pre-order exclusive Concept Art Theme. Both versions will launch May 22, 2018. The independent developer’s debut game and Kickstarter hit (€420,252 was raised) features a modern interpretation of popular roguelike game mechanics and fast-paced 3D space combat with tight shooter-style controls.

 
 

Encounters adds 10 hours of gameplay to the base game including five new questlines, all new factory space stations to augment play with on-the-fly services such as refining and converting resources, to ship upgrade capabilities and conduct crucial repairs. The Encounters DLC also provides access to a new player ship - bringing the total to four - a medium fighter class ship called the Colonial Sentinelpacked with sophisticated electronic weaponry.

Michael Schade, CEO of RockFish Games commented on the PS4 launch in a press release:

With over half a million space pilots already enjoying Everspace on PC and Xbox, we are super excited to eventually offer it to space game enthusiasts on PS4 as well. We believe that we have created a very special breed of space game that will keep players on the edge of their seat for hours with its unique blend of roguelike game mechanics, exploration, and easy-to-pick-up space shooter action set within a beautifully rendered fantasy sci-fi environment
The news comes alongside an all-new teaser trailer which you can watch below.
