The Gameplay Trailer was revealed at Gamescom 2022. It explores the gameplay and allows the creators to go into more detail about what we can expect and what they are working on.

The Expanse Gameplay and story

The Expanse tells the tale of the protagonist, Camina Drummer, the XO of The Artemis. You follow her journey as she makes tough choices to save her ship and those she cares about.

As described on the game’s website, “In the near future on the outskirts of the Asteroid Belt, a bloody mutiny breaks loose on the Artemis. You take the role of XO Camina Drummer, where your choices determine the fate of the ship.”

The gameplay itself will be more than just following the characters around the Artemis and making the choices for them. In the gameplay trailer, the developers explore the notion that you can explore the destroyed ship and experience zero gravity in the middle of space.

What platforms can you play The Expanse on?

The Expanse will launch across PC via the Epic Games Store, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S platforms.
