'Kerbal Space Program' (ALL) Making History Expansion Announced & Dated

by Rainier on Feb. 7, 2018 @ 9:02 a.m. PST

Create your own spacecraft, launch it into space to explore the galaxy, and visit a vast amount of planets; assuming you can get it off the ground!

KSP puts you in charge of the recently launched space program for a fun & clever alien race – the Kerbals. These little guys are counting on you to build spaceships, rockets and vehicles that can take them on fun space travel missions, without hurting them in the process… You’ll have a collection of parts & tools to accomplish this, each one with unique functions that will affect your ship and its chances of taking off or crashing spectacularly.

Once you've made it to deep space, KSP lets you capture asteroids, launch mining programs to find resources across the furthest reaches of the solar system and build space stations around planets you discover.

The game offers three gameplay modes: Sandbox, where you’re free to build anything your imagination can come up with; Science Mode lets you perform scientific experiments and advance the knowledge of the Kerbals to unlock new technologies; and Career Mode, where you control every aspect of the space program, including crew management, reputation building, as well as embarking on side missions called “contracts” to earn funds and upgrade your space center facilities (or repair them). 

Moving on to deep space, KSP lets you capture asteroids (in-game mission designed in collaboration with NASA), launch mining programs to find resources across the furthest reaches of the solar system and build space stations in all the planets you discover. It all adds up to this award-winning game that has taken the space sim genre by storm.

Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion adds a wealth of new and exciting content to the game, including a robust Mission Builder for players to create and share their own scenarios, a History Pack containing missions inspired by historical moments in space exploration, and more. Originally announced in March 2017, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion marks the first expansion for the physics-based space simulation game that originally launched through Steam Early Access in March 2013.

The new Mission Builder puts the process of creating and editing missions in players’ hands with endless possibilities. Players can customize their own missions to include launches, landings, rescues, malfunctions, explosions, repairs, and much more. Unique victory conditions, exciting challenges, and unexpected obstacles provide an array of complexity in these missions. Players can challenge others to complete their missions by sharing them with the Kerbal Space Program community.

Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will provide players with an entire new set of tools and content that fundamentally change how the game is played,” said Allen Murray, Vice President of Production at Private Division. “We can’t wait to see the creativity of the KSP community around the world as they create and share missions.”

Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion also features a History Pack containing a variety of pre-made missions inspired by humankind’s own space exploration. From spacewalking to crash landing and everything in between, players can attempt to recreate moments inspired by historic events, but with a unique Kerbal twist. Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion also includes a number of new parts and astronaut suits inspired by the Space Race that players can use throughout Kerbal Space Program.

Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be available for PC on March 13, 2018.
