What parents need to know

EVERSPACE 2 is an upcoming space action role-playing game for Windows PCs. Players take on the role of Adam, a space pilot that's taken a job as a wingman protecting space miners from raiding outlaws and other galactic threats. Unfortunately, during a seemingly routine patrol mission, he's captured by a squad of criminals and tossed into the brig with a fellow pilot named Dax. Fortunately, his sentence doesn't last very long, because his captors are quickly attacked by the colonial military. Adam and Dax take the opportunity in the ensuing chaos to escape, and take shelter in an abandoned asteroid base. From here, the duo take off on a journey to explore space in an open world (or perhaps open galaxy is more appropriate), fending off space pirates, mining resources, and selling scavenged goods at trading posts. As players fly through each solar system, a range of alerts may pop up: it could be a sudden distress call from a freighter, a surprise attack from raiders, or the remains of a space station. You can choose to accept or dismiss these as you wish – the galaxy is frequently changing, and with the exception of large wrecks, areas will randomly repopulate with new points of interest. Completing these tasks will earn you experience and possible loot that can be used to craft new gear for your ship, or upgrade the skills of Adam and his companions, making them more useful in combat. Players will also have the option of changing gear, skills, and weapons to fit their playstyle, making their journey different than that for other gamers. There's a large focus on space combat in the game, with potentially dozens of enemies on screen firing missiles, energy weapons, mines, bombs, and other attacks. But while enemies explode, no blood or gore's shown. Otherwise, there should be no inappropriate content.
