Are you ready to explore new galaxies, build larger contraptions, and discover even more celestial bodies? The sequel to the critically acclaimed space simulator, Kerbal Space Program is coming as Private Division and Star Theory Games announce Kerbal Space Program 2.
Following on from the original Kerbal Space Program which originally released in 2015, selling more than 3.5 million units in the process, Kerbal Space Program 2 will be coming to PC in Spring 2020, with an Xbox One and PS4 release following shortly after, to offer a whole multitude of new ways to explore the galaxy.
If you wish to further your space adventures with a robust offering of new planets to explore, new technologies to traverse the stars, and the ability to establish colonies, all rooted in real-world science, then Kerbal Space Program 2 is for you. Introducing a host of improvements and updates over the original game, you will be able to build without the constraints of planetary gravitation for the first time, allowing for larger constructions and more complex creations than ever before.
In addition, players will be able to share these experiences collectively in multiplayer for the first time in franchise history, so if you are unsure about literal rocket science, then grabbing a friend and learning the way of the world together is doable.
“KSP has always been about pushing the boundaries of innovation and creativity, and with Kerbal Space Program 2 we take that premise even further,” said Nate Simpson, Creative Director at Star Theory. “We are introducing several new ways for players to challenge themselves, including new physics puzzles to solve, new planetary destinations to conquer, and new ways to advance their own deep-space program. This continues to be a game about exploration, imagination, and understanding rocket physics – with plenty of wild crashes along the way.”
“With Star Theory, we are able to build a new gameplay foundation that is exponentially larger and allows us to explore well beyond the solar system of the original game. This is an exciting time as we are expanding the Kerbal franchise while staying true to the spirit of KSP and what makes the franchise so special,” said Michael Cook, Executive Producer at Private Division. “Kerbal Space Program 2 sparks a passion for a whole new generation of space explorers, future astronauts, and astronomers – which is the reason why we love what we are making here.”
Kerbal Space Program 2 will set you back £44.99 on PC when it releases on PC via Steam and other digital storefronts in Spring 2020, with the Xbox One and PS4 launch happening shortly after.
