Everspace launches on Windows 10 with Xbox Play Anywhere

Space shooter Everspace, which launched into game preview on Xbox One in September, is now available on Windows 10 via the Windows Store (opens in new tab) as well. With its launch on a new platform, Everspace is also an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning you can buy it one and play on both your PC and Xbox One.

If you're unfamiliar with Everspace, the space shooter is an action-packed single-player game that puts your skills to the test as a pilot. The game is heavy on gorgeous visuals, and packs in plenty of interesting systems. Here's a taste of what to expect:

  • Fight! Dash into exciting dogfights and experience furious space combat using a wide range of weaponry and devices.
  • Craft! Use collected or mined resources to craft equipment and modifications for a much needed advantage or repair you ships systems. Your choice.
  • Loot! Collect blueprints for crafting and go on the hunt for exotic weaponry and equipment. You never know what drops next.
  • Explore! Travel through huge procedurally generated levels with lots of hidden treasure and danger. A game of risk and reward awaits.
  • Die! Giving in to the seductive embrace of death does not mean the end. Spend collected credits to unlock new perks and keep your blueprints to boost your chances for the next run.

The game is still a work in progress, but you can snag it at a discounted price of $29.99 while its in Game Preview. Once it launches in early 2017, the price will move on up to $39.99. If you want to test the waters, you can also try Everspace for free.

Are you planning to give Everspace a go now that it's available as an Xbox Play Anywhere title on both Windows 10 and Xbox One?

  • Appears we can toggle between first person and third person right? Just like in racing games like Forza motorsport?
  • Yep
  • Had high hopes for this game based on name alone. Then the preview/demo came out and I'm glad I had a chance to try it. I guess I was expecting more of singleplayer EVE Online or even a Freelancer. Oh well. Will be passing, thankyouverymuch.
  • Is this the game that a few months ago had an enormous amount of problems launching on PC?
  • No Man's Sky??
  • Ah, thanks. I knew the name didn't sound the same.
  • Do I need to rebuy it on Windows 10? I already purchased it on Xbox one awhile ago...
  • You shouldn't have to. Have you checked the listing in the store on your PC to see if it says "Owned"
  • Your question has been answered by the article bro.
  • This game is great.  Been waiting to fly around in new gen consoles for awhile.  Not a big fan of sim flying games, just want to soar around and this fits the bill nicely.  
  • OMG a DEMO!
  • How does this compare to Elite:Dangerous?
  • Less elite and/or dangerous.
  • Let's see iOS and Android play this game.
  • You cant play it on Windows tablets, cuz it has not any touch controll
  • You could play it on a Windows tablet with an Xbox controller connected.
  • They could add touch control support.. its on windows store
