Starfield meets Sea Of Thieves in beautiful upcoming game

There are many wonderful things to love about video games, especially as they can provide us with lasting memories that we’ll not be able to live in the real world. Video games can also offer a level of immersion that no other form of media can provide.

Arguably, the best genre when it comes to player immersion is the RPG. Whether it’s embarking on epic quests in a mediaeval fantasy world fighting dragons as seen in The Elder Scrolls or exploring outer space in No Man’s Sky.

Check out the wonderful live action Starfield trailer below!

When Bethesda’s Starfield was released in September 2023, it was supposed to be the big Xbox Series X|S exclusive that fans have been waiting for. To be fair, with over 1000 planets and 100 solar systems to explore, Starfield is a very big game in that respect. However, in terms of quality and mass opinion, it’s been a mixed bag of tricks. Depending on who you ask, they might love Starfield or they might hate it. After all, it’s the difference of opinion that can make our world an interesting place.

In our review of Starfield, we said: “Every now and then, a new game comes along that changes our perception of what the industry is capable of. Starfield is that game. This is beyond what we’ve come to know an open-world to be. Bethesda has created a universe that, despite its vast scale, maintains interest and an impressive attention to detail throughout.”

There is plenty of fun to be had in Starfield, but hopefully, over time the game can be made into an even better experience, similar to what Hello Games did with No Man’s Sky and Rare with Sea of Thieves. Yet, until that time may or may not arrive, the upcoming Hyperspace from Swedish developers, Keepsake Games might fill that void. Just a heads up, there are a few games of a similar name on Steam, which can be a little confusing.

Hyperspace (working title) is a co-op PvE game where you and your three friends take the role of a crew of a spaceship. You’ll be flying the ship, firefighting, optimising energy flows, manning turrets, exploring derelict shipwrecks, and more!” reads the description of the game. If Hyperspace seems like it could be your cup of tea, you can sign up for updates via its official website, which also has some beautiful screenshots to check out.

Currently developed by just 11 people, Hyperspace will be the first game from the independent studio, which has helped with the development of games such as Minecraft, It Takes Two, A Way Out, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, so the studio does come with a lot of experience, especially when it comes to co-op games.

Unlike other space adventure games such as Starfield and No Man’s Sky, the galaxy of Hyperspace will be handcrafted and not procedurally generated, but will have randomised events to keep each playthrough feeling fresh.

At the time of writing, Hyperspace does not have a release date, but Keepsake Games intends to launch the game on Steam Early Access at some point during late 2024. Hopefully, in the coming months, the developers might release a gameplay trailer for us to see if Hyperspace looks as good as it seems.
