Kerbal Space Program, the space flight/rocket science simulator about building rocket ships to fly into space, is getting a sequel. Kerbal Space Program 2 was announced on gamescom 2019’s Opening Night Live.
Kerbal Space Program 2 is billed “the next-generation of space exploration”, which will be adding a new feature not seen in the original- colony building. The original just only added some stuff to do when you reached another planet through the Breaking Grounds update.
The simulator will have new “next-generation” rocket ship parts for players to invent their ideal space rocket. And space exploration will be expanded, allowing players to try and visit new planets other celestial bodies.
Modding, a key feature in the original Kerbal Space Program, will still be available. And multiplayer will be added. Also, for new players, the sequel is promising a better onboarding experience, so in theory, understanding the rocket science should be easier than before.
The sequel is being handled by another developer, Star Theory with the original developers Squad in a supporting role. Kerbal Space Program 2 will be coming next year for the PS4, PC (Steam), and Xbox One.
