What will Kerbal Space Program 2 gameplay be like?

In the franchise you take charge of the space program for the Kerbals (a rather adorable green alien race), assembling a spacecraft in order to explore moons and planets to build bases and stations to expand the reach of the expedition.

Kerbal Space Program 2 promises a multitude of ways for players to explore more. These include new planets, new technologies and the ability to establish colonies. All routed in real-world science.

“Players will be able to build without the constraints of planetary gravitation for the first time, which allows for larger constructions and more complex creations than ever before – including interstellar vessels. In addition, players will be able to share these experiences collectively in multiplayer for the first time in franchise history,” said the developer.

There will also be various updates and new feature such as parts, additional modding support and an improved tutorial experience to help get new players off the ground. These will both help new players while keeping the challenge high for veterans.
