Independent AA developer ROCKFISH Games is excited to share their critically successful space action RPG, EVERSPACE 2, is coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on August 15, 2023. After a successful PC launch earlier this year with an 81 Metacritic rating and 88% Very Positive rating on Steam totalling more than 350,000 copies sold so far, the massive single player open-world space action RPG will be available for $49.99 USD / £49.99 / €49.99 / ¥6930.

“With space adventure games getting more attention than ever, we’re excited to bring EVERSPACE 2 to whole new audiences on Xbox and PlayStation this August,” says ROCKFISH Games CEO Michael Schade. “The two years we spent in Early Access when developing for our PC launch has served us well in the lead up to our release on consoles and we’ve used the last few months well, polishing an already rock-solid foundation. Series X and PlayStation 5 players can look forward to exploring the star systems of EVERSPACE 2 supporting 60 FPS when we launch later this summer.”
