'Jump Ship' Is A Spacefaring Co-Op PvE Game Coming To PC And Xbox Early Access In 2024 - Screens & Trailer

Jump Ship is a space exploration co-op FPS game where players work together to operate their very own spaceship, scour the galaxy for riches and engage in dynamic, often frantic combat.

Jump Ship is a co-op multiplayer game in which players will need to work together in order to survive as they operate and repair their ship, scour space debris for resources and battle enemy ships. Despite being a co-op first experience, solo play will also be encouraged and balanced accordingly. Transition seamlessly from crewing the ship to on-foot exploration and space walks. Engage in intense battles both on the ground and in space, and always keep your ship upgraded and intact.

Upgrade and customise your ship as you face off against the challenges of space exploration, and scavenge resources to ensure your survival. Reinforce your defences, adjust your energy output for speed or bolster your ship’s attack capabilities - the choice is yours.

Experience fluid gameplay as you switch from steering your ship out of an asteroid field to jetpacking towards an enemy vessel to sabotage its core. Seamlessly transition between exploration, combat and traversal.

Go on missions with your friends and take on roles, from piloting to engineering and field exploration. Work together to overcome enemy attacks, extinguish fires on the command deck or adjust your ship’s power grid on the fly. There are no set classes in Jump Ship, improvise and decide how you want to engage.

“We’re designing Jump Ship to carefully tread the balance between immersion and fun when it comes to space exploration.” Daniel Kaplan, CEO of Keepsake Games explains. “We feel the core gameplay is solid, but we also want to involve the players and make a game they will want to keep playing, which is why we will be entering Early Access on PC and Xbox.”

“No one adventure is the same, and things often turn into chaos out of nowhere.” says Filip Coulianos, Game Director at Keepsake Games. “One moment you’re chilling and scavenging for parts, the next you’re desperately trying to fix the fuel leak e on the outside of your ship as projectiles from enemy ships fly around your head and your captain is shouting to get strapped in as you try to escape the sector. We’ve tried to build a game that brings the best of the sci-fi space fantasy together in one co-op experience, and we can’t wait to see people jump in!”

Key features:

  • Modular Exploration - Each adventure is divided into multiple jumps, giving players a chance to dip in and out of handcrafted adventures with randomised events and modifiers. Whether it’s a solar flare, an asteroid shower or a pirate raid, no two runs will be the same.
  • Seamless Adventuring - Operating a space vessel requires crewmembers to be scrappy and flexible, which is why Jump Ship makes the experience seamless. Players can exit their ship to repair the outer deck, explore the surface of an asteroid or jetpack towards an enemy vessel seamlessly, without loading screens or transitions.
  • Build, Maintain and Pilot your Spaceship - Each adventure will yield materials and blueprints to upgrade the players’ jump ship for the next adventure. Crewmates work towards a common goal of making it out alive with as much loot as possible.
  • Fly with a crew, or go solo - Jump Ship is best enjoyed with friends, but solo adventurers are welcome too.

Jump Ship is in development for Xbox and PC (Steam).
