Rockfish Games, developers of Everspace 2, have released the official roadmap for future development throughout 2021, and it shows new ship sub-classes, activities and fast travel will be coming to the early access game over the next 12 months.
There's also going to be new additions to the game's story, which is something that the team had previously ruled out. The first of these updates will drop in the spring and will feature a new light fighter that will be well suited to speed and maneuverability, along with a new heavy fighter-bomber that will feature missiles and mines.
That'll be followed up by the summer update, which will add a brand new system, new enemies, and increase the player level cap, before a third update in the fall adds yet two more fighters, another new region, and excitingly, a fast travel feature.
