A few days ago, Rockfish Games announced that it was working on an open-world space shooter. You may remember the team from the excellent Everspace. Luckily, the studio will reveal the title at Gamescom 2019, but that hasn't stopped it from releasing a few teasers about the project.
On the Everspace website, the follow excerpt was posted a few days ago.
The description seems promising and hopefully, the team will deliver just like it did with Everspace. You can check out a few of the screenshots the developer posted from the upcoming game below. It looks a lot like Everspace, but it appears to feature more human-like spacecrafts and structures. One image appears to show a satellite.

I had a hard time getting into Everspace but absolutely enjoyed the game play and the visuals. Pretty excited for this new project!
Same here... Took me quite a few times of playing it before I really got into it. Almost finished the main game now with just over 100 runs and I'm really enjoying it.
Couldnt play Everspace. Too hard. Dont really relish the "die hundred times to enjoy". Played dozens of space combat/sims - just didnt like the concept of "Dark Souls in Space". Rebel Galaxy/Outlaw is far more enjoyable
Try easy mode... After 50 attempts it was too easy. 😜
