What You Need to Know:
- ROCKFISH Games released a pretty big update this past week for EVERSPACE™, adding the all-new Hardcore Mode, TrackIR, and fully customizable HOTAS (joystick) support. With this major update and the release of the original soundtrack and the official art book, the dev team have made sure to stick to their promises and delivered.
- Anyone who missed out on the soundtrack and the art book can now upgrade to the EVERSPACE™ Deluxe Edition for $9.99 on Steam. Hardcore Mode offers a whole new level of challenge for veteran pilots. It is as demanding as hard difficulty, but players are not allowed to improve their starting conditions. Each new run starts out with the same fixed set of pilot perks and without any ship perks upgraded.
- Hardcore Mode also introduces another nasty surprise: before entering a new sector, players must select from different “handicap” modifiers which have adverse effects on the overall gameplay, letting them choose between the frying pan or the fire. With this major patch, there are coming further features requested by the community, like options to toggle Motion Blur, Chromatic Aberration, different kinds of anti-aliasing, changing the screen percentage in non-VR Mode, Colorblind Mode, as well as mouse/keyboard controls and further improvements in VR. Look forward to more updates as they become available.
