Khaït Nebula: Stranger Skies update adds new ships, weapons, and mechanics to EVERSPACE 2 today

From Press Release:

Hamburg, Germany – November 3, 2021 – Hot off their EVERSPACE 2 launch on Xbox Game Pass for PC, independent AA studio ROCKFISH Games has released Khaït Nebula: Stranger Skies, the third, major Early Access update for their acclaimed spacefaring looter shooter.

The Khaït Nebula is the strangest star system players have yet to discover in the EVERSPACE 2 universe. Filled with mysterious artifacts, bizarre creatures, and hints about the history of the precursor race known as The Ancients, there’s a lot to discover in space and on planetary locations.

Picking up where the last update’s story left off, EVERSPACE 2 players can now discover a new faction, alien life forms, and another companion in the latest star system. They’ll also gain access to a new player ship class, perks, puzzles, and more. The Khaït Nebula is filled with a whole host of space faring wildlife as well as The Redeemers, a cult of researchers turned to the worship of The Ancients.

Khala, the Navigator, joins the party after encountering her during the main quest line. She comes from a previously unmet alien species and brings special expertise to the crew, unlocking  additional details on the star map for completionists and jump nodes for shortcuts through space, namely: Fast Travel.

The new Vindicator Heavy Fighter type ship class switches it up with high mobility and a focus on using drones to deal damage. The Vindicator’s drone focus is supported by its expertise and abilities which increase drone hull hit points, synchronizes attacks, and reanimate destroyed enemies as new drones.

In the 2022 roadmap preview, ROCKFISH Games reveals that the next update is scheduled for spring, next year. It will feature another star system but no additional story content as the remaining third of the campaign is being saved for the full release. However, in the spring update space pilots will get a glimpse of the endgame as well as the third light fighter subclass, so there will be plenty of new content to explore.

Furthermore, UI and text language support for German, French, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Czech, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Korean will be added in this update per high demand from the international EVERSPACE 2 community.
