The Art Of EVERSPACE 2

EVERSPACE 2 is already shaping up to be a cracker of a space adventure, so it’s no surprise that the game already has a ton of killer art.

Rockfish’s latest adventure, which is currently in early access, is already shaping up real well. The roguelike nature of the original has been dropped for more of a traditional Privateer or Freelancer-style world. But EVERSPACE 2 has massively improved its combat and the manoeuvrability of its craft, and there’s a good little story afoot (or what’s been released, anyway).

But we’re not here to appreciate or evaluate the game’s early access state. This is all about appreciating the immense amount of art that goes into creating all the various worlds, planets, ships and environments that you’d come across.

A little bit of concept art has been teased in official EVERSPACE 2 posts and announcements, but today we’ve got a lot more straight from developers Rockfish Games. You can thank Tobais Frank, JC Jongwon Park, Alexander Preuss, Malte Stange  and Matthias Kummer, as well as Rockfish’s creative director, Uwe Wütherich.

This isn’t all of EVERSPACE 2‘s concept art, obviously. The game still has a year or more to go in early access, with more star systems, locations, companions, ship customisations, aliens and environments to be added. All of those will need their own environment/concept art as appropriate, of course. And if the quality of what we’ve already got is anything to go by, EVERSPACE 2‘s full launch will be an absolute blast.
