Can't believe I missed this and no one else has posted anything for it yet, looks promising. I played a lot of Rebel Galaxy, enjoyed it quite a bit, had no idea they were making this as a successor.

Loved the original, was just pure casual spaceship pewpew. Last I read it was going to be exclusive to Epic Games store or something? Not sure if anything changed. The fighter based combat was appealing, anything decent that reminds me of wing commander/tiexwing/freelancer ect is usually a buy from me.

Fucking SOLD. Got Rebel Galaxy as a free game with PS+ and I was still jonesing to play it during a period when my subscription had lapsed so I picked it up then. Totally worth it. Give these guys your money.

Also, I'm not the world's biggest blues/country fan but the original soundtrack is epic and totally captures the space cowboy feel. Worth it just for that.

I guess "Coming Soon" means 6 to 36 months for Epic.

just bought it, just turned it on and i'm hit with blues seraceno on the menu screen.

this game gets an A+ so far.

edit: after an hour or so of gameplay, it's great. it's a 2019 version of privateer/freelancer in all the right ways. if you've played rebel galaxy and liked it, you should probably like this too.

How is the combat versus the original? I hated the combat in the first one.

Yeah, looks awesome. I bet if Roberts had released something like this a couple of years ago and called it Star Citizen most people would have been as happy as a pig in shit.

Really makes me want to get it, if I had time to play.

rebel galaxy was all capital ships, this one is all fighters/small frieghters. combat takes a minute to adjust to the controls simply because there's no tutorial (which is fine, really) so the first couple rounds of combat you might have to pause to go to the control menu a couple times. but otherwise it feels good. the ship you start off with is a piece of junk, obviously but it doesn't control like as sluggishly as you'd expect it to, so i'm excited to get into the better fighters to see what they are like.

There's always fitgirl.
No reason not to, given how the Epic sellout deals work.

Shame, too. Rebel Galaxy sucked because of the 2D restrictions (and an overall lack of depth), and this one looked really interesting because they dumped that shit for a cockpit-view, 3D flight model. Still nothing close to real physics, but you don't have to be a full-on sim to be fun.
