SPACE MARSHALS 2 – LAUNCH UPDATE

SPACE MARSHALS 2 – LAUNCH UPDATE

Howdy all fellow Space Marshals fans out there!

It’s been a while since we last posted about the progress on Space Marshals 2. Thought it was time to give you guys a little update on the development and when we predict the game to be ready for release.

We’ve been working really hard and so far we’re truly excited about how it’s turning out.

Compared to Space Marshals 1, where we divided the game into chapters, we are planning on releasing a larger set of missions upon first launch with Space Marshals 2.  As for price model, we truly believe premium is the way to go with Space Marshals on iOS. Something which we think a majority of our players appreciate and agrees with. However, we are looking at other approaches for Android where the market is tough for premium Apps.

Gameplay wise, Space Marshals 2 will come with updated graphics, ragdoll physics, new animations and not to mention whole new set of environments and enemies with unique features. We’ve kept the stealthyness that came with Space Marshals 1 and turned it up a notch. In Space Marshals 2 you’ll be able to do silent enemy takedowns!

All in all there’s gonna be some epic new features which really makes the game stand out.

Looking at our time schedule we believe Space Marshals shall land in the AppStore sometime in June, and shortly thereafter on Android. It’s too early to determine exact dates just yet, but we’ll keep you guys noted as soon as we can feel confident about when the game will be ready for launch.

In the meantime – we hope you stay in practice with Space Marshals 1. Keeping your Space Marshals skills warm and ready for some soon-to-come new Tactical Top-Down Action!

All the best!

    What does “premium model” mean in terms of pricing?
    Any sort of approximation? Because it sound like $10+ and honestly that’s a bit steep for a mobile game.. even thought seeing how much work is put into it, I completely understand and support you. If possible, I’ll buy the sequel aswell, have no doubt about that, the original game is honestly the best gaming experience I had on my iPad ever, and trust me when I tell you – I’ve seen games in my life 🙂

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      There’s no price set just yet. But, with confidence we assure you it wont be $10+! Best regards, Pixelbite

      1. MaXiToO

        Excuse me , but for IPad 4 – Space Marshals 2 , it will not be playable ?

        1. Pixelbite

          No the iPad 4 will not be able to run Space Marshals 2. The game requires support for the graphics framework called Metal, which the iPad 4 does not have.

    2. Jesus Perez

      the price for premium on android will be 5.99.

  2. James

    It can’t come soon enough!

  3. Liz

    Thanks for sharing of this great news. I am looking forward to the epic new features in this gameplay. ♥♡ Best wishes Liz

  4. Mike

    Wait what? $10? Why is it much more expensive than the first one?

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      We haven’t set a price for Space Marshals 2. Don’t know where you got the $10 indication from?

  5. Mike

    Oh man, misread it.
    Very excited for it and I’m really pumped up about the stealth takedowns you can perform on enemies.
    Looking forward to it.

  6. Ryan

    It’s safe to say I have been checking here everyday for an update on SM2. Happy to hear it’s coming soon! If I look at all the games that have come out on iOS since the first, I’d have to admit Space Marshals was and still is my favorite iOS game in that time. No pressure. But happy to hear iOS will be premium too! 🙂

  7. Stubbieoz

    Great news. I love the first Space Marshals on my iPad Pro.
    Definately will be buying this!

  8. raymond

    Space marshals worth every damn penny ,would happily pay for its sequel .

  9. Anonymous

    Could you put it free when it first comes out?

  10. Gustavo

    Can you let the game be free for when it first comes out?? That would be helpful and you will get a lot of people and then you could put a price on it the day after

  11. A.J.

    Hi,
    I have beta tested over 50 games. Could I beta test out this game? Email me and let me know. Respond please

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      We’re in no need of external beta testers for this launch, but thanks anyway!

  12. Gustavo

    It would be nice if you would put the game free when it first comes out so you could get a lot more people playing it and then a day after you go put it to where you pay money.. I think it’s good to put it free since everyone wants this game out right now and it could be like a 1 day free kind of thing, and yea please try to, thanks

  13. Terry Zheng

    What is the hidden achievement in space marshal 1? Could anyone kindly tell me?

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      This is a bug and shall be removed in the next game update.

  14. Scott

    Even if you choose a different model on Android, can I be assured that it won’t a freemium, “premium currency”, pay to win, in-app-purchase heaven? Space Marshalls is one of the few games that I would gladly pay full price up front if it means I get a full, premium game without all the freemium crap.

    Also, is there any word on Android TV and cloud save support for Android? Playing on my Nvidia Shield TV and picking it back up on my tablet would be an absolute dream.

  15. Big ali

    Hi i think there is not much upgrades in this game .if there was classes and charachters to choos it would be perfect .also there is no charachter skills .these days the games that are based on items like legendary or epic items are really growing and really feels good when you get a legendary item thanks

  16. Jonathan

    Can’t wait! I’ve completed every mission 100% in Space Martials 1 and am running out of fresh content.
    Speaking of fresh content (I know it’s a lot to ask), but could you try fit in a level creator/editor in ones of the updates? That would be awesome! (:

    Thanks
    -Jonathan

  17. Domzu

    I really liked SM1 a lot: the gameplay, funny content and lot of different possible tactics. What i really appreciate (and how i found the game in first place) was the pay-once-and-play setup. If sm2 will be nearly as good with more content i would even pay 10+ as long as their are no additional in app purchases.

  18. Gustavo

    Let it be free when it first comes out

  19. Max

    Please keep it at a premium setup! Freemium I getting out of hand. Also, please price it accordingly to make it worthwhile to continue the game into a third and fourth installment! Amazing game guys! Keep up the good work!

  20. Anonymous

    hi.
    i am on android and would appreciate a *premium* option if you decide on other price models. I would gladly pay the full price up front for your QUALITY! product. in-app purchases is just /((&$&§…

    😉 thanks for considering and greetings from Germany

  21. Mac

    I just need to say this… Space Marshals is EASILY the best game I have ever played on iOS. I can even go a step further and say it is up there with the best game I’ve ever played on any platform. Well done! I’m chomping at the bit for the sequel. Hurry up June!

    Keep spitting out these killer games.

    Mac

  22. a fan

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ADD MULTIPLAYER! COOP OR PVP IT DOES NOT MATTER!

  23. Dominic Heuw

    Best game I’ve ever played on ios, great gameplay, great graphics, and truly immersive experience.

    If one thing i can suggest for the next one is to please include melee weapon as a third weapon, something like a knife (maybe this is what you guys mean as silent takedowns). So you’ll have rifle, handgun, and a melee weapon.

    Multiplayer will be AMAZING if you guys can do this. Imagine co-infiltrate with a friend and go for two player missions maybe not for story mode but like a challenge mode with random generated environments with random placements of enemies. I’ll buy that for $10 plus with multiplayer mode 😉

    Will definitely buy the new one, please just make it premium, no freemium!

  24. Azamat

    Great game! Keep it up!

    1. Anonymous

      Yeah!Ive finished the beta version too…its fun and easy

  25. Nasir

    Hi, SM is the one of the best game ever I played on iOS. Will definitely buy whatever price will cost. If you can put multiplayer and PvP mode will be awesome. Cant wait to get the new one. :):):)

  26. Anonymous

    Chance to create a hero or an alternative female character???

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      No. This is nothing we’re planning on doing at this time.

  27. Joe

    Since we are paying upfront in sure you are staying true to no ads, IAPs, or any type of energy system, right?

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      True! On iOS we are staying premium WITHOUT IAP. For Android we are looking into other strategies.

  28. Kaden

    I think bodies shouldn’t disappear… I think you could be able to pick them up and hide them. I think it would make the stealth even better

  29. Kaden

    I feel like there should be a skill tree, upgradeable weapons, shops, crafting, a title screen, and a difficulty selection

  30. Kaden

    In space marshals 1 there is a glitch for security tape #2 and the train job. The glitch is really annoying because the mission lags so much, the game crashes.

  31. Kaden

    In space marshals 2 you should be able to pick up bodies and hide them. also please add co-op

  32. Kaden

    I also think that there should be a little more Gore/blood but still make it be T for teen

  33. QuickShadowTE

    Yay excited

  34. Michael

    I am very excited to hear that SM2 is close to coming out. SM1 is easily my favorite game and has so much playability. Really helped me out as I recovered from major surgery too, so a million thanks for the great game. You have no idea how much it helped. I would easily pay a premium price for SM2, no worries there. It’s worth it!

  35. K.

    Still haven’t done anything about the bug at the end in SM1? Disappointed.

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      A new update was just release, including a fix for this!

  36. Rene

    “Big ali

    Another silly suggestion, when will you understand that this is NOT an RPG game but Top-Down Tactical Shooter? there’s no such thing as “Classes”, “Skill Points” , “Pets” or “Custom Female Characters” . No need to copy those “these day games”, cause this game is already unoque.

  37. Luke

    Any chance this will make it to Apple TV (tvOS) like Xenowork?

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      Not that we’re planning on atm.

  38. Kinggames

    Will there be mifi controller support for space marshals 2?

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      Yes!

  39. Kinggames

    Another question, this likely won’t be something you would want to do until after space marshals 2 has been fully released (with all of the chapters), but are you planning on releasing any of these games on steam or consoles? (if you release on steam PLEASE make it available for Mac.)

  40. Duh_Ninja

    don’t forget to put it on amazon app store!!!

    PLZ amazon app store is sooo bad already PLZ don’t make it 50x worse! (yes that is how much i love space marshals!)
    I do not have any other mobile device and many other people also only have a kindle fire

    PLEASE don’t forget us kindle fire users!

    (I..I I’ll pay $10 ) 🙂

  41. Mac

    It’s June 1. When am I going to play SM2?

  42. Chin

    Any updates on SM2 launch? Can’t wait to buy and play!

  43. Bob

    Best game on IOs!
    Are you adding multiplayer because that is the only big thing holding it back it seems.

  44. Duh_Ninja

    wait soo am i gonna see it on amazon app store or not

  45. Anonymous

    Really good work guys! Just wondering if the game will come with a complete set of new weapons, amour, hats etc etc. Really love the first one as it was probably the best quality game I had ever plaid on my phone.

  46. Max

    When is the actual date SM2 will launch? keep refresh this page hope got any news update…

  47. John

    Has the AI been improved in SM2?

    Don’t get me wrong, I love SM1 (and have gained all the achievements), and look forward to SM2.

    But sometimes the “bad guys” can be a bit dumb, such as when I kill one with the long bow, and another one only a few steps away in plain sight doesn’t notice.

  48. The unknown SuperChase

    Just as a continued buyer question, if you completed SM1 100% could you potentially get a special item or thank you for the continued dedication?

  49. J Lee

    Those of you that don’t want to pay,start pinching your penny’s.Quality is worth the small price of this gem of a game.

  50. King

    SM2… Can not wait any longer… I’m blacked out.

  51. Edy

    When u will do an upgrade

  52. Shahzad

    Any news on the release date? Thanks

  53. Frederick

    Can we get a new release date?
    The suspense is killing me

  54. William

    I CAN NOT WAIT11 They just do not have enough games like this available on the (cr)app store.

  55. Kaden b.

    I agree w/ The unknown SuperChase cuss I beat the game and got all the best gear and invested a lot of time in SM1. One think I woul like to see in SM2 is mele weapons cuss I was always running out of amo and couldn’t complete the levels.

  56. Space Hog

    Is there anybody out there? Any release date set? Waiting, hoping, bored, bring it!

  57. 한주형

    I love space marshals
    and it`s my life game
    thanks for release space marshals 2

  58. Ilyas

    Both Space Marshal games do not work on iOS 10 Public Betas. PLEASE HELP!!!

  59. Nithin

    Please pixelbite please release it for Android I was very addicted to space Marshal 1 it was a great game just a request please don’t deny by not releasing it for Android please do release it and as soon as possible before September ends

  60. Soufi

    Hey Guys Behind this great game,
    I have download it in my iPhone 6s (iOS 10 public beta 7). Unfortunately j can’t really play it and the game is keep on crashing. Hope you guys will fix em up. Good game. The only role-playing game that i’ve ever played in my phone

    1. Pixelbite

      The only known fix for iOS 10 is to rebuild the game with the latest (BETA) developer tools. However, we aren’t allowed to release anything built with the beta tools yet, not until they reach Gold Master status.

      As soon as the Gold Master is released we’ll submit an update fixing the issue, if it hasn’t been resolved already in the OS.

  61. Sean

    Am surprised some people are asking for the game to be free. Free games are the worst. The price for this one is nothing compared to what people pay for F2P games.
    Nice one PixelBite

  62. HappyCat

    Space Marshals 1 had windows release. Do you plan to do the same with the new game?

    1. Pixelbite

      We don’t have any plans to release this game for the Windows Mobile platform (yet). But if Microsoft were to give us a call…

  63. Roger

    I will say – Space Marshals 2 is *much much* (much) harder than Space Marshals 1 🙂

    1. Pixelbite

      Glad to hear we were able to give you a proper challenge 😉

  64. Tom

    Is there a release date yet for Android?

    1. Pixelbite

      We’re working hard on the Android version. We’re doing some adaptations for the Android market which has been taking longer than expected. But we still need to test it properly, so please bare with us a few weeks more.

  65. Mohd hifzaan

    Please tell me space marshal 2 realised on please???

    1. Pixelbite

      I’m guessing released on Android here. We’re currently finalizing the Android version but we don’t have an official date yet.

  66. Bryan

    It’s been almost 2 months I don’t understand the meaning of ‘soon ‘already

    1. Pixelbite

      We’re currently finalizing the Android version of Space Marshals 2 but we don’t have an official release date yet.

  67. Nithin

    U din release the game yet to Android are u planning it to release or not I was very excited after reading this article should we leave the expectations..

    1. Pixelbite

      We’re currently finalizing the Android version of Space Marshals 2 but we don’t have an official release date yet.

  68. Angel

    What do you think the price is going to be?

    1. Pixelbite

      Do you mean the price of Space Marshals 2? It’s available on the iOS App Store now for $5.99. And it’s available on the Android Play Store now in public Beta for free, with an in-app-purchase option for a Premium experience: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.pixelbite.sm2.

  69. metzo

    S’il vous plait faite qu’il soit compatible avec openGL 2.0

    1. Pixelbite

      We have no plans to support OpenGL ES 2 at the moment. It’s a massive feature and most devices only capable of OpenGL ES 2 will not be powerful enough to run the game anyway.

  70. Tushar

    I have Android 4.4.4 and the minimum requirement is 4.3 but the game Space Marshals 2 crashes as soon as I open it. Please suggest a solution?

    1. Pixelbite

      Make sure your device supports OpenGL ES 3.0 or better, which is a requirement of the game. If your device does support OpenGL ES 3.0 please contact us at support@pixelbite.se and we’ll help you from there.

  71. Tushar

    Game crashes on Android KitKat, please suggest a solution.

    1. Pixelbite

      If your device supports OpenGL ES 3.0 please contact us at support@pixelbite.se and we’ll help you from there.

  72. Duncan

    Hi,
    Will sm2 run at all on iPad 3? I bought the app downloaded and it doesn’t run. I have been using sm1 on the pad for months.
    Will it become available on an update?

    1. Pixelbite

      Unfortunately, you need an iOS device that has Metal support (iPad Air+, iPad mini 2+, iPhone 5s+) to play Space Marshals 2. It has much more advanced graphics compared to the prequel. This means it will not run on the iPad 3.

  73. Unknown

    I need help! I dont know where to post this as there is no forum.
    I cant fire using my controller in SM2.
    I am running Note4 with android marshmallow 6.0.1.
    It worked perfectly with SM1 though (finished the game, great game!)
    In SM1 my R1 button fires, L1 prev(or next?) weapon, R2 and L2 do nothing
    In SM2 my R1 next weapon, L1 prev weapon R2 and L2 simulate a tap (sneak/unsneak)
    There is no way I can fire in SM2 using my controller
    Luckily I didn’t pay for premium yet

    1. Pixelbite

      Thanks for reporting this. We’re looking into differences between SM1 and SM2. We’ll submit a patch once we’ve fixed it.

      1. Unknown

        Guys, what are taking you so long to fix this? I’m using Mocute 050 gamepad for android.
        I’m dying to play this game! If it is so hard to fix why dont you guys just implement gamepad keys remapping option in game? No more problems like this.

  74. Whellder Guelewar

    An excellent game!

    I played on nvidia shield tv and it is very enjoyable to have a game like this available on the device, one of the best, no doubt!

    Are there plans to be released on Steam?

    I think it would be very interesting to expand the platforms, I think a lot of people would like it.

  75. Keith

    When is the kindle fire hd release date

    1. Pixelbite

      There is no Amazon version planned at the moment.

  76. Unknown

    Disappointed with the latest update v1.3.4
    I can shoot, but at the same time it also toggles sneak/unsneak at the same time

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      Hi There! Thanks for contacting us about this. I’ll forward this to the team and we’ll invetsigate it. Best regards

    Please, oh pretty Please. Please port the series two through however many to Windows 10 (64). I’m just starting to game with any consistency and I enjoyed Space Marshals very much. I’m not all the concerned if the title goes to $10 or eleven bucks, I’ve got Doom, Fallout (I’ve got a whole bunch of this Fallout, some kinda’ orange thing I think), Wolfen something, Sniper Elite #2 and #4, Team Fortress #2, Witcher #3 (Wild Hunt) and some more for my xbox. To the point all these games cost more than $10 bucks. (I’ve also played around with “Hitman” (the turn type) and one other with a woman. To cut to the chase I don’t thin I’m alone gaming with Windose 10 ( I’m too lazy to go back to 8.0 or 7)
    Great Game

  79. Alexandre rodrigues

    Porque é que o jogo não é compatível com o Huawei p8 lite?

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      Space Marshals 2 requires both Android 4.3 and OpenGL ES 3. Please make sure that your device meets these requirements.

  80. Mattdiu

    Why my Asus ZenFone 4 can’t play its already upgraded 5.1 Android

    1. Caroline Tinebo

      Space Marshals 2 also requires OpenGL ES 3. Please make sure that your device meets these requirements. Thanks!

  81. dilligaf

    Please release space marshals 2 for windows 10 mobile i have completed. The first space marshals and really looking forward to the second one

    1. Pixelbite

      Unfortunately we don’t have any plans to port Space Marshals 2 to the Windows Phone platform.

  82. Anonymous

    Latest update on Google Play broke the game, any plans on fixing this issue?

    1. Pixelbite

      Sorry for the late reply. This issue has been fixed.

  83. bOOks

    has development for this game ended ?

    1. Pixelbite

      Currently we’re not developing any new content for SM2 as we’re focusing on our new title. But we’ll surely return to SM2 at some point.

  84. Obrian

    Hy man need a help it is not playing in my hisense u6 android 6,just saying unfortunately space marshals 2 stopped, plz help me.

    1. Pixelbite

      If your device is listed as not compatible in the Google Play Store it’s most likely due to your device does not have hardware support for OpenGL ES 3.0. This is limited by the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) of your device, and not linked to the Android version of your device. This is not something we can easily fix in a patch.
