Incursions Update Release Date Announcement

EVERSPACE 2’s Spring update brings new legendaries, combat events, photo mode improvements, and more!

Greetings, Pilots!

We’ve been sharing details on our blog and livestream about our free Incursions update over the last few weeks, now it’s time to share the release date and some of the bigger features that will be included! With all the changes under the hood, this update may be one of our biggest yet. 

New Incursions Event and Revamped Rifts

Past a certain rift-related point in the EVERSPACE 2 story, beacons appear and unlock a new horde-mode style combat challenge. Pilots fend off incoming enemy ships to drain beacon shields and open up brief opportunities to strike. Defeating all the beacons in an area completes the Incursion and rewards players with a large loot drop including chances at new legendary gear and reliquary treasure chests.

Here’s a quick look at an Incursion:

There’s plenty more coming in Incursions:

New Legendaries and Reliquaries 
We’ve shared a few of the new legendaries coming in the update, but you’ll have to wait until release for the rest. Fifteen new pieces of legendary gear are being added, get set to collect them all! If you missed it, Catch up on our Radiant and Reliquaries blog for more details. 

Scout Ultimate Change
As shared in our last update, the Scout’s Shadow Strike Ultimate is being overhauled. In Incursions, Scouts gain an ability that grants additional cloaking time for each kill while the ship’s Ultimate is active. This change turns a slow buildup sniper one-shot into an invisible powerhouse that can shred squadrons. 

Improved Controller Support on PC and Consoles
Many EVERSPACE 2 players love their controllers and we want to ensure they have the best experience possible. Incursions adds native PlayStation 4 Dualshock and PlayStation 5 DualSense support for PC players on Steam, GOG, and the Microsoft Store. Console pilots will also soon have much-requested button mapping options similar to those available on PC. 

Photo Mode Improvements
Virtual photographers have done wonders with EVERSPACE 2, capturing incredible cosmic events and incredible space battles. The Incursions update provides some changes and improvements that make this feature easier to use. 

New Cosmetic Ship Modules
Longtime EVERSPACE 2 pilots have been asking for more ways to customize their ships and our designers have delivered. A selection of new ship front, rear, and cockpit modules will be found throughout the DMZ. Collect them all to ride in style!

That’s just a taste of what’s to come in Incursions. In addition to our migration to Unreal Engine 5, a full list of features, changes, and bug fixes will be available when the update goes live on all platforms April 29 at 10am PST / 1pm EST / 6pm BST / 7pm CET.

See you in the stars!
