Encounters is the first major expansion for EVERSPACE™, enriching the game world with new story characters and questlines, a brand-new player ship, freighter-loads of novel equipment, additional enemies, and much more. A NEW RIDE Impress your peers with the new Colonial Sentinel, a medium fighter craft, and make use of its powerful shield and advanced electronic warfare capabilities. Mileage may vary. NEW FRIENDS? Play five new quest lines and meet new characters, each with their own motivations and agendas. Ever met a robot bounty hunter with a French accent who would rather create than destroy? Of course not. Or an alien scientist who sends you on a hunt for space creatures? That's right. Creatures... in space. EXTRA FIREPOWER Six new primary and secondary weapons, such as Lightning Guns and Plasma Throwers, will ensure continued enjoyment when dispatching your opponents. Ever wanted to barrage multiple foes at once with projectiles? The Seeker Missile Battery aims to please. You deserve this. TOOLS OF THE TRADE EMP Generators? Decoy Holograms? Why, yes! More than ten additional devices and consumables will make surviving Cluster 34... as hard as before. But even more fun. THE FINAL TOUCH If you're not too busy dying, the new G&B factory stations are well worth a visit. Here you can upgrade your ship, refine resources, and delay your inevitable fate by means of repairs. WAIT... THERE'S MORE? If a simple paint job didn't do it for you, why not fly in style with one of the five new fashionable ship skins? And if your journey isn't challenging enough already, we've got you covered with even more achievements. Happy hunting, pilots. Try not to die.

Everspace: Encounters Reviews

Encounters makes this already great space shooter even better.

Everspace: Encounters is the best roguelike game in eighth generation and one of the prettiest "space games" ever. If you are a fan of Action roguelike (with RPG elements) or space combat games, you will definitely love this game. But I must mention that if you don't like to die too much, i don't recommend it because Everspace is one of the hardest games in this generation and challenge your patience and skills over and over again and reward you generously if you resist against difficulties.

The sum of these additions helps Everspace to feel more complete, but ultimately only offers more padding. That's okay, though, since this is such an affordable piece of DLC.
