This week the developers of the game Kerbal Space Program announced that they will soon be releasing the game’s first expansion, Making History.
This expansion will bring a lot of new stuff to the game, the most interesting of all of those is the ability to create your own space missions and even reenact those that have happened in the real world.
It will add a new drag and drop interface that will allow players to setup and create these new missions.
On top of this, the DLC will also bring a range of new parts for your spaceships along with a new competitive scoring mode, a personal parachute and more.
Here’s the full description of the features:
Simple interface: Using an intuitive drag and drop node interface, you can easily create new and exciting new missions for yourself or others to enjoy. Creators can also add constraints such as time, fuel and parts limits; as well as unexpected mission events.
Recreating history: Included in Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion is the History Pack. Players will be able to experience the trials and tribulations of the early days of Space Exploration on missions inspired by real life historical events.
New parts: Aside from mission creations tools, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will have additional parts such as new fuel tanks, adapters, decouplers, fairings and command pods… inspired by both American and Soviet space programs!
Kerbal Personal Parachute: Your astronauts will now be safer in case of imminent disasters with all new personal parachutes. So next time Jeb is in trouble and all systems are failing, you can simply eject him and activate his parachute. Then, you just have to hope, there’s an atmosphere to slow him down…
Challenge other players: A new addition to Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be the concept of scoring. At the end of a mission you will get a numerical score to compare with your friends and the community.
Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion is still in development and will be released as a paid expansion. Pricing and availability details will be announced at a later date.
Squad didn’t reveal a release date for the expansion just yet, however, they did say that it will be a paid expansion.
