The sequel to the realistic, science-based spaceship building and flying sim offers over 350 parts, including multiple sizes and color customization. Animated tutorials help introduce rocket science to new (and returning) players.

Players can also enjoy new map iconography, more user-friendly vehicle assembly, and a redesigned UI.

The sequel also features improved visuals and audios, including a dynamic music score and real launch SFX.

“We’re very excited to release Kerbal Space Program 2 in Early Access,” said Nate Simpson, creative director, Intercept Games. “Having built a game of such unprecedented technical complexity, we can’t wait to see what new feats of creativity our community will finally achieve. We’re looking forward to hearing their direct feedback as we move into the collaborative phase of the game’s development during Early Access.”

Throughout Early Access, developer Intercept Games promise many new features, including futuristic technologies, interstellar travel, and extra-terrestrial colonies. Oh, and modding and multiplayer!

Early Access is currently limited to PC, but will also arrive on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S at a later date.
