25 Upcoming PC Space Games in 2018 & 2019 ► Sci-fi, Open World, Simulation!

Space games set the stage for exploring the unknown, massive battles, intricate constructions, along with living and surviving in a vast hostile environment! Welcome to the 25 Upcoming PC Space Games in 2018 & 2019 list! Now, Space is a bit of a nebulous genre when it comes to gaming but it isn't just about a game set in space. It has to have space ingrained into the essence of the theme and gameplay, and the games listed here are thoroughly spacey! No one can promise that they will all turn out good but they're all interesting and have potential in their own rights, so let's get started!

    Extra bonus game! Starsector ( http://fractalsoftworks.com ) wasn't making that many waves but a lot of you seem to love it, so here's the mention! Empyrion: Galactic Survival is also a thing, but I listed it the last 2 years and it's still not out. As a policy right now I don't list the same game as upcoming 3 years in a row. Since many are asking, Astroneer is in the Simulation list for various reasons. Finally, Astrox Imperium is a single-player RPG set in space if you're into that. Then, look at all the competition for Space Games! Which ones are you most interested in? Which ones do you think will actually make it?

  • Hakan Karaağaç

    Lesson 1 dont pre orderLesson 2 dont buy early access

  • Eisberg 77

    The extreme lack of Single player games similar to Freespace, Wing Commander, Tie Fighter, Privateer 1 and 2, is very disappointing.

  • Dawei Tao

    Star Citizen definitely not coming out in 2018 or even 2019 but I think Squadron 42 might come at the end of next year. Dual Universe looks interesting buy also a long way out.

  • ZyZla

    X4 got straight on my wishlist

  • Zóar

    The game that I most expect: Star Citizen.The game that I want you to fix: Space Engineers.The game that catches my attention: Dual Universe.

  • yonderTheGreat

    Dude... as always your lists are amazingly impressive. I wish games journalism were half as credible as GZ! Keep up the quality!

  • Theseus Rahl

    I'm most excited about Star Citizen! Although, I could use one or two space games for the interim, thanks for the list!

  • Univoyager

    Thanks for including Univoyager! :)

  • AUTO6

    Dual Universe looks the most interesting.

  • nikolai iliev

    Where is the best space game , Beyond Good and Evil 2 ? And also Star Citizen will coming ... exactly never .

  • S K

    Star Citizen’s biggest and most significant update to date just launched in December: 3.0 - with planetary landings, cargo trading, etc etc

  • DrMerciless

    Still really excited for star citizen. X4 sounds cool and I'm keeping an eye out for dual universe

  • David Wessman

    Thanks for including Starfighter Inc., GamerZakh!

  • MrGrownman455

    Empyrion can't get a mention ?

  • John Grund

    Thank you for this review. There was quite a bit covered here, and it was done well. Kudos!

  • Michael Johnson

    I still looking forward to Limit Theory.

  • ElectroVeeDub

    All Angels Fall?I'm checking that one out on Steam. 🙂

  • Freeblade

    Yay! Avorion's here! I'll add that this game was originally created by only one talented programer, the team is still small BUT they are everything you ever wanted from developer. They listen to the community, the game is built on many ideas by the players, are friendly and are making the game because they want to. Forget about greedy companies, money is for them just a welcomed side effect.Game itself is well optimised and it has the BEST SHIP BUILDING I'VE SEEN SO FAR! The possibilities and tools allow you to build anything you can imagine, unlike all those block based games out there, ships in the trailer are just the simpliest beginner ships you will construct at your first try.

  • Igor Welkenbach

    On a side note : man, why does every space combat simulator game has to be a stupid trading sandbox game with no story, or some dumb class based MMO? Where are the sprawling epic campaigns, the Freespaces, The Tachyons, the Evochrons (its good but its a tiny budget and a tiny team), The Exoduses (another old indie gem)? That said i did like some mentioned, like the flower-like one where youre a pink ball and Univoyager

  • TheTechnicalNirl

    X4 will redeem us! Hopefully...

  • The Zanzibarbarian

    It has to be X4 for me. Got the others in the "X" series already!!However, I'd love it if someone could revamp a game from 1993.Frontier: Elite II by the genius that is/was David Braben.And when I mean revamp, I don't want the game play to change, just bring the graphics into the 21st Century will do fine. The game was great and one of the first game's I recall that just gave you a space ship and to go out and do your thing. You were not tied down to anything. It was just a free play game. No story line.

  • O Hayden

    It's kind of amazing to me how many of these games are super derivative of both Space Engineers (FIRST!) and Empyrion: Galactic Survival, both of whom refined the survival/build/voxel worlds game and now it's just being re-re-recreated. I'm curious how you'd compare Empyrion, specifically, to these "new" games.

  • RadimentriX

    most excited... probably x4, loved x2, x3 reunion and terran conflict and hopefully x4 will be as much fun. space engineers i still wait for some blocks to come into the main game and for it to finish so i can use mods without having to fear that they wont work a week or month later. well, and star citizen, having quite some fun with 3.0 atm and hope that they'll start patching and adding stuff soon

  • Star Citizen 890J

    STAR CITIZEN = 2021SQUADRON 42 = 2019

  • CSDigitalDesign

    @GamerZakh I get you are talking about games coming in 2018 and 2019 and Star Citizen (the MMO part) isn't expected to be released by then even by the most of optimistic fans. HOWEVER, you should of mentioned the single player game they are making, Squadron 42 . It is planned to come out by the end of 2018 . It should of been on the list and they recently showed a vertical slice of the game-play. Here's a link to the gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHR1aEdTA4M&t=1662s

  • Jakov Jurin

    Star contorl is so awsome well the sequl was while the third was junk

  • rebot449 seah

    The thing I like most about space games are the spaceship designs, the designs between universes are just really cool.

  • Hamed Shah

    My brain dosent work when I play RTS space games. Too many things going on in the same moment cant keep up with it.

  • snwboardn21

    As long as X4 is a real successor to X3:Reunion it should be good. They just need to scrap what XRebirth was altogether.

  • 910AM Superstation Funnies

    OSIRUS went from a great space game with a few bugs to fix, to now a totally revamp and horrible experience from where it all started! Run! Update: 4/1/2018

  • Dumb Comment

    Oh you think star citizen is taking too long? Well what about Space engineers

  • CReaper210

    I really wish we could get a space game that had a real focus on story and featured things like diplomacy and first contact and everything that entails. And with meaningful exploration as well. That's what I was hoping for Mass Effect Andromeda to be. But that game was disappointing in every way. They screwed up the exploration, the story, and even the first contact itself.Really hoping for something like this soon.

  • Erik S

    Pity you didn't include Limit Theory, which has had a troubled development but has been making a lot of progress in recent months.

  • João Águas

    Awesome post. :)Loved the reviews and you showed some games that I didn't know about, that seems awesome.Star Citizens is beginning to be a disappointment for me. I gave money in the kickstart phase at the same time that Elite: Dangerous appeared. Elite is already out and Star Citizens is... errrr... not! :-\ I hope they can develop something worthy for the time that they are taking.

  • UnleashedBanana

    No darkorbit, it was such an amazing game it's a sad story of how it was ruined with pay 2 win model ;(


    Excellent video.Really looking forward to x4 myself. If it's anything like x3 it's gonna be great.

  • CrispyMuffin

    something tells me that Sationeers is a replica of Space Engineers :\ who the hell knows.

  • Juan Luis Acosta

    star citizen, awesome progress but i cant play it XD crashing all the time

  • Rooster

    Some additions from the top of my head:PULSAR: Lost Colony, Rimworld, The Station, Helium Rain.

  • Check This Game

    Star citizen with conviction !

  • Kundason

    hey and thanks for this excellent video.can you please share what the music in the background name's is ? i really loved it .

  • TouchyHands

    I am excited to continue playing Kerbal and never ever stop.

  • TheRaptor1967

    Star Citizen still gets my juices running. Closely followed by Dual Universe. Hears hoping it gets released.

  • Noxxys

    This list is missing Starsector. It has the best 2D space ship combat IMO.

  • Mad Dog Murdoch

    This was genuinely insightful, you got a few gems in there I never heard of thanks

  • stealthyshiroean

    I actually forgot about Galactic Princess. Such a pity. I already own Space Engineers and Osiris: New Dawn. Haven'e played much of Space Engineers, but I can definitely vouch for Osiris. My wife and I have played a good chunk of Osiris earlier in the year and enjoyed our time with it. Stopped in order for new updates to come through, but would be willing to pick it back up. I was pretty excited about Planet Nomads, but after they announced not having anything to do with multiplayer I decided to hold off on a purchase. And the my favorite aspect of space games....hmmm, it really depends on the space game. I like commandeering a ship, but also like colony-building. I think above all would probably be exploration. Seeing alien worlds, or exploring a a new star system -- those are the kind of things that are my biggest take away in any space game.

  • Kissan PentuX

    Outreach and Hellion both seem like games I would play :D

  • Esper

    Looking at Flagship, would have been interesting to make it a coop experience, where each player is in command of their own fleet.

  • Ibike007

    Developer Flat Earth Games, that cracked me up man! 😜

  • StudentYaoi

    Nice vid, Zakh. We are looking for even more games!

  • Steve Lacy

    Limit Theory is one you should maybe look at.

  • Erin Dunn

    Hands down my fav, Space Engineers! I can't say enough.

  • Joa S

    what we really need is a Warhammer 40k version of planetside ;)

  • Lilac Streamer

    Star citizen might reach alpha 5.0 (maybe) by the end of 2019, but Squadron 42 Episode 1 will likely release in early 2019.

  • neutchain

    Rogue System. For those who like complex simulators like DCS.

  • Game4U2B

    Star citizen is now already fun to play, especially that the developers keep up with what backers give on info about the game itself. Anyhow, it's my favourite.

  • Texelion 3D prints

    I'm really waiting for Beyond Good and Evil 2.Probably in 2025 or something.

  • dark side nation

    Dual Universe seems the most promising for everyone I think.

  • Evan Lindsay

    Flagship must certainly take inspiration from Ender's Game.

  • Massimo Belloni

    A game like WoW in space is what i look for

  • Alianaberry's Gaming Channel

    Empyrion - Galactic Survival. I am so enjoying this one. :)

  • Just Gapas

    Thank you for existing!

  • Peter Francis

    Always appreciate time line links when seeing these type of videos, could you maybe add one ? Thanks anyway

  • Conan the Brobarian

    I'm excited about the next big update for Aurora 4X which is probably the best 4X game I ever played and it's completely free.

  • Solve Everything

    Cosmoteer looks insanely advanced. I love the idea behind it. Imagine if Star Citizen would let you build a starship with a npc crew like this.

  • Luka Bajic

    I played Hellion pre-alpha (before it was even available on steam) and I must say it is pretty good

  • Halo1369Lamouse

    i like you ! Hit the sub and bell icon on your channel :* I hope you grow and make more quality content !lots of love from a sci-fi junkie !Live long and prosper !
