Rockfish has just lifted the lid on the upcoming expansion to Everspace. Encounters adds a new ship (a medium class fighter called the Colonial Sentinel) that should change things up quite a bit from a gameplay perspective thanks to its extended shield capacity, and there'll be new NPC questlines built into the story set around the Okkar homeworld.

The Encounters expansion will land on PC in late October, and will follow on Xbox One in February, 2018. Now, before you go, here's some new gameplay:
