Everspace gains hardcore mode, joystick support and more in new update
Rockfish Games has released a brand new update for Everspace, which adds hardcore more, fully customisable controls for HOTAS, joystick and gamepads and additional visual options.
In terms of new visual options, a spectator camera that can be activated during action freeze mode, basic colourblind mode, AA options, toggles for motion blur and chromatic aberration. Three new languages were also added: Chinese (Traditional), Japanese and Korean. Numerous tweaks and bug fixes were also addressed in the patch. You can read the full patch notes on the Everspace website.
For those wondering about how the hardcore modes works, Everspace’s press release gives the following details.
“The stand-alone Hardcore Mode offers a whole new level of challenge for veteran pilots. It is as demanding as hard difficulty, but players are not allowed to improve their starting conditions. Each new run starts out with the same fixed set of pilot perks and without any ship perks upgraded. Players can upgrade ship perks only at the end of each sector, provided they have collected enough credits. Hardcore Mode also introduces another nasty surprise: before entering a new sector, players must select from different “handicap” modifiers which have adverse effects on the overall gameplay, letting them choose between the frying pan or the fire.”
