We have published 7 new images of Kerbal Space Program 2 as well as various details on the new game from the press release released in these hours by Gamescom 2019.
Private Division and Star Theory Games announced at Gamescom 2019 the new Kerbal Space Program 2, a sequel to the popular space simulator presented yesterday with a first trailer at the Opening Night Live and illustrated today by the first images and details.
Kerbal Space Program 2 is scheduled for the spring of 2020, first on PC and then on PS4 and Xbox One. The new chapter represents a substantial evolution of the excellent progenitor, enriching the experience in terms of content, simulative mechanics and graphic technology. So let’s see how the official presentation press release speaks.
Kerbal Space Program 2 offers players plenty of ways to continue their space adventures with a wide variety of new planets to explore, new technologies to cross the stars and the possibility of establishing colonies, all rooted in real-world science. Players will be able to build for the first time without the constraints of planetary gravitation, which allows for larger constructions and more complex creations than ever, including interstellar ships. In addition, players will be able to share these multiplayer experiences for the first time ever.
Kerbal Space Program 2 also introduces a series of new improvements including planets and usable parts, modding support, and an improved tutorial experience to help get new players off the ground. On the one hand, these changes will offer newcomers help to learn what rocket science is literally studying, while on the other, it will keep the challenge level high for veteran players.
“KSP’s goal has always been to push the boundaries of innovation and creativity and with Kerbal Space Program 2 we have further deepened this premise,” said Nate Simpson, Creative Director of Star Theory. “We are introducing different new ways for players to challenge themselves, including new physics puzzles to solve, new planetary destinations to conquer and new ways to advance their program in deep space. This continues to be an exploration game, the imagination, and understanding of rocket physics, including crazy accidents along the way. “
“With Star Theory we are able to build a new game base that is exponentially larger and allow us to explore far beyond the solar system of the original game. It is an exciting time as we are expanding the Kerbal franchise while remaining true to the spirit of KSP and what makes the franchise so special “said Michael Cook, Executive Producer of Private Division. “Kerbal Space Program 2 cultivates the passion for an entirely new generation of space explorers, future astronauts, and astronomers – and that’s why we love what we’re doing here.”
The launch of Kerbal Space Program 2 in digital version for € 49.99 is planned for PC via Steam and on other digital platforms in spring 2020.
