Everspace was one of the very first third-party Xbox Play Anywhere titles, and the first to launch in Game Preview at the same time. Game Preview allows games that are currently in development to be sold in either the Windows or Xbox stores, and participating titles will usually get large updates regularly.
Today’s update brings Everspace up to version 0.4, and it’s massive. It adds over 100 additions, improvements, and fixes to the game, including the brand new Colonial Gunship. It’s capable of ripping apart enemy ships with its fusion blaster, flak cannons, and automatic Gatling turret- plus, the improved front shield generator helps it to stay in the action even longer when it’s being fired upon.
Additionally, the perks system has been split up into both player and ship perks. All three ships have some exclusive perks – for example, while you’re able to improve the Colonial Gunship’s armor, you’ll end up improving the Scout’s sensor range. It’s a nice touch that will help out with replay value in the long run, and gives players a reason to try out different ships.
If you’d like to read the full changelog, you can check it out on Xbox Wire by going here, and find Everspace in the Windows Store by heading here. Since it’s an Xbox Play Anywhere title you’ll be able to hop into the action on both Xbox One and Windows 10 with just a single purchase, so there’s no worries about picking up the wrong version of the game.
