Kerbal Space Program takes one giant leap for kerbalkind

, | News

Kerbal Space Program is now feature-complete and out of early access. The sandbox space agency sim by Squad now has and actual game to go with its physics playground and the developer feels confident that the game has reached a point worthy of being called a 1.0 release. In recent Reddit discussions with fans, Squad confirmed that they will continue updating the game for free for as long as they can, and that they would not sell DLC unless it was “something huge that adds a lot of gameplay” like a more traditional expansion. Among the features of the 1.0 launch are a female crewmember, an overhauled flight model, a new heat sim, fairings for rocket construction, and resource mining.

Kerbal Space Program 1.0 is what we envisioned when development of the game started four years ago: we set out to make a game in which the player is given ultimate control over the exploration of space: from designing their rockets to launching and flying them to their destinations, in a universe that was modeled to be as realistic as possible while remaining fun to play in.

Kerbal Space Program has been endorsed by NASA, Elon Musk of SpaceX, and the European Space Agency. The game is available on Steam, GOG, and the official KSP site.
