Hamburg, Germany – March 6, 2018 – Hamburg-based independent developer ROCKFISH Games announced the release of EVERSPACE™ and the add-on EVERSPACE™ – Encounters for PlayStation™ 4 and PlayStation™ 4 Pro.

The base game will be available for €/$29.99 and the DLC for €/$9.99 or bundled together for €/$34.99, respectively.
The boxed EVERSPACE™ Galactic Edition will be published by Madrid-based publisher BadLand Games for €/$39.99. It will include the base game, the add-on, the original EVERSPACE™ soundtrack as well as a color-printed booklet featuring the studio’s history and the making of the game.
EVERSPACE™ will hit the PlayStation™ Store and retailers on May 29, 2018.
“We are super excited about the PS4 release of EVERSPACE, and it is just awesome working with BadLand to bring the boxed Galactic Edition of EVERSPACE to retailers all across Europe and America,” said Michael Schade, CEO and co-founder of ROCKFISH Games. “Getting our console debut game out on PS4 and even onto the shelves of brick and mortar stores are two more fantastic achievements for our fairly new studio.”
“We are delighted to be working with ROCKFISH Games, to offer their addictive space shooter as an exclusive retail bundle for all space game enthusiasts on PlayStation 4”, adds Badland Games CEO Luis Quintans.
ROCKFISH Games raised €420,252 from 10,739 backers for EVERSPACE™ through a wildly successful Kickstarter in 2015, with another €250,000 coming from over 6,000 backers through the official game website. Since Early Access in September 2016, ROCKFISH Games have sold over 400,000 copies, which made EVERSPACE™ become one out of twelve Steam Early Access Platinum Graduates of 2017.
EVERSPACE™ takes daring space pilots on a challenging journey through six sectors, each featuring multiple procedurally-generated levels full of dangers and treasures. In each run, they will face entirely new situations, continuously testing their skills, experience, and talent for improvisation. Players will find three ships with different capabilities to choose from, plus a wide range of weapons, devices, and consumables at their disposal. Great piloting skills will be needed to stand a chance against various enemies, along with a keen eye for loot and mineable resources, which are used to repair damaged ship components or to craft new equipment and modifications, giving players an advantage in combat and a better chance of making it out of a sticky situation alive.
About EVERSPACE™ – Encounters
EVERSPACE™ – Encounters adds about 10 hours of new gameplay, featuring five new questlines that blend seamlessly into the base game, all-new factory space stations which add further gameplay mechanics by offering special on-the-fly services, like refining and converting resources, upgrading ship capabilities or minor repair jobs, and a new player ship coming with sophisticated electronic warfare as well as a plethora of new weapons, devices and consumables to fool, distract, and defeat enemies in new ways. Furthermore, daring space pilots can pay the Okkar Homeworld a visit, too.
