Space Sim Sequel 'Evochron Mercenary' Unveiled

BOOM widget 135442 One-man indie studio StarWraith 3D Games has revealed the latest instalment in its space sim series Evochron, with an "all new" graphics engine to make the series' famed seamless atmospheric entries all the more magical.

New features in Evochron Mercenary include player-built space stations in both singleplayer and multiplayer as well as dynamic music and deeper customisation options.

What does Evochron involve? Starwraith explains that "As you pilot your spacecraft through a vast seamless universe, you can perform many activities including buying, trading, negotiating, bribing, spying, racing, escorting, transporting, mining, exploring, cleaning equipment, clearing paths through asteroid fields, recruiting, protecting, hiring crew members, fuel harvesting, building stations, and designing/selling ships." Lovely.

Evochron Mercenary is scheduled for a downloadable release on PC this fall. Pricing has yet to be announced, though previous Evochron titles cost $24.95.
