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.
