Here is the latest patch notes, from reading the development map on the website (cause epic games store has absolutely no news sections grrr) looks like PC development has basically stopped so the team can put out a PS4 and Switch release. Only emergency patches will be made for the PC if it is necessary. Once that is done they will probably be working on a DLC and mod tools. 

Well least when this game is done it should be rock solid and have everything 😉

Maybe they are getting paid extra to put on Switch first? To me the gfx looked a bit different?

Bar game on the switch, boy I was hopping the PS4 version would be out by now, but it looking like it's going to be some time next year, might as well just wait for the steam release of the game.

Just looked the website and they mention that they are working on the trophies, so with some luck we may see a console release soon, knowing my luck I will look at in this in 6 months and the game will still not be out. 🤣 

Also was mentioned an Xbox version of the game, maybe that has accounted for the delay.

Not a release date more of a window, maybe? anyhow it might be March for the console versions of the game. They also mention that we should see the Steam version around August but unfortunately no mention of a GOG version of the game and dlc for all version sometime late 2020.

And I have no idea why that link post a picture link 

 

WHAT’S DONE: EGS Launch, Free Content Updates
The PC version of Rebel Galaxy Outlaw launched on the Epic Games Store August 13th, 2019. We’ve also added additional content, including ships and a new training mode that will also be found in the console version. Development on the PC version will continue once we’ve got the console versions out the door. Steam is still on track for around August 2020 — we’ll revisit this around July to begin nailing down a firm date. The Steam version will have achievements.

WHAT’S NEXT: Console Ports Nearly Here
We’re essentially feature complete on our PS4 and Switch versions of the game, and rapid work continues on the Xbox One version. Lotcheck and rating are coming next for all three versions, and we’re going to have separate news items on each for those unfamiliar with the process behind each of those. Broadly speaking, the absolute earliest the console versions will hit is March, but if we hit any snags in ratings or a failed lotcheck, it could be later. As soon as we have a firm release date, we’ll be shouting it loud and clear on our Discord, Twitter, and Facebook so be sure you’re following at least one of those!

Wait until it lands on GOG.

I second that. Funny that I have Rebel Galaxy installed for a couple of years now and never got around to playing it... though I'm getting hyped to fire it up now.

You would think that the Xbox port of the game would be the easiest to do since the xbox does run windows 10 🙂 but for some reason I hear this type of thing a lot about porting to Xbox.... It must be a hardware thing that is specific to the xbox.

I have Rebel Galaxy as well which I haven't played yet 😉 I been kicking around for years doing some youtube videos but never get the nerve to do it haha

I believe RG:O is still waiting on the mod tools as well, so that will probably help this game a lot when those come out and modders work their magic.

Looking on the steam forum for the first game and it looks like it's going to be next month before we see it.

And the game finally has a Steam page https://store.steampowered.com/app/910830/Rebel_Galaxy_Outlaw/ and a release date of the 22nd of Sept all being well, Not seen any mention of the console versions of the game.

And the whinging about the game has already started on the Steam forums.

I am about 15-20hrs into Rebel Galaxy and I am stupid for not playing it sooner, so far I like it a lot. So looking forward to trying Outlaw later this year. With Rebel Galaxy being a good base to build from I think this will be pretty successful if the Double Damage Games keeps up the support and keeps its promises of a good set of mod tools.

I found the the first game has an insane difficulty level once you get out of the first system.

Not see anything about a GOG release of the second game but they have updated their website  https://rebel-galaxy.com/rebel-galaxy-outlaw-console-and-steam-release-dates/ and all three of the console versions will be released at the same time as the Steam version of the game.

Still in the first system but will be leaving that shortly, I did do a little grinding to get up some money for a few better ships and modules so I think that helps a bit. But I will find out shortly the difficulty curve when I leave the system probably tonight 🙂 I do think it plays better with the controller instead of keyboard/mouse

And the game has dropped on Steam today and it's cheaper than I expected at least in my part of the world.

So I was just about to start playing this but the keyboard controls are really bad, seems to be some option for changing things but not looked at them yet as I dug out my 360 pad but it seems to has a problem as well as the game keeps resetting to the keyboard controls.

It maybe because the joypad a knock off one and not an official Microsoft pad but it work fine with the first game, anyone had this problem or can suggest a good joypad?.

Edit joypad worked all the time, turns out it was a faulty USB port.

Ok played about ten hours of the game sofar and only done a couple of the story missions and it a very well put together game and the joypad is the way to play it. Very much in the tradition of Elite, Privateer and Freelancer and it's probably the closest any one come to making a sequel to Privateer/Freelancer.

I would say that the only negative so far is that their is a certain deja vu to playing the game in that it does not contain a single original idea, but on the other hand they have made one of the best examples of a space trading combat game.

I totally fine no original ideas as long as they do what we expect well 🙂 after finishing Rebel Galaxy I will be looking forward to picking this up sometime and playing it. And as i experienced in the RG the controller was definitely the best method to play in that game too.

Thank you for the flight reports @Pinback.
And +1 with a well executed "good old space sim" but my gamepad died on me a while ago so I'm afraid that's a no go here 🙁

I found that the keyboard/mouse control a bit unresponsive and did not try the joystick at all.

The game is very playable, they have taken best ideas from older game and run with them, like the match target speed from Wing Commander, makes the combat a lot more playable and if you don't like it I think you can turn it off or just not use it.

Over 20 hours into the game and their are a couple of things which are starting to really irritate me, nothing major but even if I turn off the ignore distress beacon, it still rests itself back on.

Admittedly this is more a personal gripe but having to go through 10 jumpgate to get some where is just boring, why do they never do jumpgate right in games.
