NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Private Division and Squad today announced that Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansionwill be available for PC on March 13, 2018. 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 critically acclaimed 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.”
My name is Rafael Calonzo Jr., and I am the Senior 2D Animator on Kerbal Space Program 2. You may be wondering — as I did when they first approached me for this role — why would a realistic space travel simulation need two-dimensional animation? KSP Making History is the first expansion pack for the game. It provides you with many additional features. First of all, there is a history pack which allows you to participate in the mission, heavily inspired by events from the real history of space exploration. However, an element which is going to take most of your time is the Mission Builder.
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.
