Everspace 2 With Good Reviews and High Sales on Steam

Yesterday's debut of Everspace 2 in Early Access turned out to be a success. The game received very good reviews from users and hit the top spot on Steam's bestseller list, ahead of Cyberpunk 2077 and Red Dead Redemption 2, among others.

Yesterday evening, Everspace 2, the sequel to the space shooter by Rockfish Games, was released in early access. Several hours have passed since the launch, so it's worth to have a look at how the game's debut went. It turned out to be quite successful and bodes well for the future of the project.

Right after the launch, Everspace 2 hit the first place of Steam's global bestseller list and remains on this position at the time of writing this message. Thus, the game is currently selling better than such hits as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Operation Broken Fang, Rust, Cyberpunk 2077 or Red Dead Redemption 2.

Of course, this state of affairs won't last long, but the developers can be pleased with the initial sales results. At the hottest moment of the release day, Everspace 2 was played on Steam by 2,679 people at the same time. This is not a dizzying result, but it is worth noting that the activity record of the first part is almost half of this number - it's 1,448 and was set two years ago. So you can see that the sequel is doing much better.

Analyzing the above numbers, it should be remembered that they do not fully reflect the scale of the sequel's popularity, as it is sold not only on Steam, but also on GOG.com.

The reception of Everspace 2 is very good so far. 94% of the reviews by Steam users are positive. In turn, on GOG.com the average of note from the players is 4.6/5. Overall, it can be said that the game recorded a successful debut in early access.

Currently, Everspace 2 is only available on PC. Console editions are planned, but they will appear only with the release of version 1.0 of the PC edition, which should happen next year.
