About Kerbal Space Program 2

About this game

The original Kerbal Space Program is one of the most beloved games of all time and, years after its release, it's bigger than ever before. Its sequel, Kerbal Space Program 2, has been fully redesigned from the ground up to meet the demands of modern and next-generation space exploration, all while maintaining the monumental foundations of the first game. Build a space program, construct powerful spacecraft, and navigate expansive celestial bodies as you explore cosmic mysteries. Releasing in Early Access as an homage to the original game’s launch, KSP 2 will allow players to see features as they are built and provide feedback to shape this exciting game through development. New features will periodically be added through Early Access that will captivate veteran and returning players, as well as usher in a whole new wave of Kerbonauts to the ingenious and comedic world that has entertained millions.

Major Upgrades During Early Access

Get a front-row seat as major new systems come online, including the addition of new star systems, interstellar travel technologies, colonies, multiplayer, and more. Become part of the development process by contributing feedback throughout the Early Access period and be the first to play exciting updates the moment they are released.

Improved Onboarding

Kerbal Space Program 2 will create a whole new generation of spaceflight experts who will find themselves accidentally learning the fundamentals of rocket science. New animated tutorials, improved UI, and fully revamped assembly and flight interfaces allow both experienced and novice players to quickly put their creativity to the test without sacrificing any of the challenge from the original game.

Customizable parts and new space-flight technology

In Kerbal Space Program 2, the astoundingly inventive creations that KSP is known for will be taken to a whole new level. Players will be delighted and challenged by a new generation of engines, parts, fuel, improved variants, procedural parts systems, and much more. The overhauled vehicle assembly interface includes part sorting and a blueprint view for making precise adjustments. And of course, new part coloring allows you to customize your creations like never before.

Rich new environments to explore

Unprecedented detail, variety, and realism make each celestial body a rewarding destination. Clouds, atmospheric scattering, and an all-new terrain system combine to take your breath away, from ground level all the way to orbit!

New tools to optimize your exploration of the universe

Along with other massive new UI/UX improvements, you can now use time warp while accelerating and plan complex maneuvers with ease using the new non-impulsive maneuver planner. New sphere of influence and atmosphere indicators take the guesswork out of interplanetary maneuvering!

Immersive sound design and original score

KSP 2 takes audio immersion to the next level by utilizing live recordings of a real rocket launch, VAB construction and ambient noises, systems-heavy wind effects for flight, atmosphere (or lack thereof) driven effects, and much more. The KSP 2 soundtrack has also expanded dramatically with an original score by Howard Mostrom, recorded with live musicians.

Why Early Access?

More than anything else, we cannot wait for players to build, fly, crash, and fly again!

The core pillar of KSP2 is building and flying cool rockets. While we have additional features planned like colonies, interstellar travel, and multiplayer, we first want to hear back from players about the core fundamental experience.

We believe that going through early access for KSP2 will ultimately allow us to build a better game through a supportive dialogue with our community.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

KSP 2 will stay in Early Access until we feel that the game and its full feature set are at our desired level of quality. Check out our roadmap above for our planned feature releases and make sure to follow our social channels for further information on timing of updates.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

The 1.0 version of KSP 2 will include significantly more features than the Early Access version, such as what you see on the roadmap plus other items added along the way. This includes:

  • More parts and the opportunity for more creative builds
  • More star systems and hidden anomalies
  • Improved quality of life and onboarding to open up the vast beauty of space to even more players
  • Continued performance improvements and visual updates

We can’t wait for you to join us on this journey into the stars!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Initial release of Early Access will include:

  • Remodeled and visually updated Kerbolar system with celestial secrets to uncover
  • Hundreds of new and improved parts including engines, procedural wings, and more
  • Customize your vehicles with creative paint jobs
  • Improved experience for new and returning players
  • Animated Tutorials
  • Improved User Interface
  • Upgraded Map View
  • Fully revamped assembly & flight interfaces
  • More for players to discover (we don’t want to spoil everything)

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

Yes, KSP 2 will sell for $49.99 (SRP) during Early Access, and we expect that the price will be raised at 1.0 release.

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

Your feedback will be crucial in helping to make KSP 2 the best it can be, and we want to hear about everything that is important to you. Are the tutorials effective and are there enough of them? Have the user interface changes made a meaningful impact? Is the localization accurate?

Most importantly, we want players to play for thousands of hours. What will keep you playing? During Early Access there will be a form on the KSP website to submit detailed feedback. It can also be accessed from the game’s launcher and the Steam page.

You can follow the development progress through our various social channels: the KSP subreddit, the official KSP forums, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and Facebook.

Very disappointing for a 60$ Game

At first, I could not wait to play this game but as we got closer to the launch day and I saw what content we would be getting I started to regard buying this game ever at a discounted price as the content we got was not more than Kerbal Space Program 1. I would wait into the game gets out of EA or the games goes on sale for 50% or higher Thank you for taking the time to read my review.

Fun for veterans of KSP 1 but not worth. KSP 1 is currently better in terms of performance and mods.

Personally, I love the KSP franchise and the first game. However, as of right now, I don't think the performance, lack of features (such as no re-entry, no interstellar travel, no colonies, no science mode), god-awful parts manager, and bugginess of the game justify the price. I understand that the game will definitely get better and it's still in early access but that doesn't change the game for what it is right now. If you are an original KSP fanatic then maybe buy it out of excitement but for most people, I'd recommend waiting till it has more features and better performance.

Still early release but it's got a ways to go. Mods highly encouraged but have faith in the devs to bring it up to speed. It's more power intensive than the original obviously, and KSP itself can already be very intensive.

Still very early. You can see the promise of this game. I am a huge fan but right now the original is better. I cannot wait to see how this game develops I've r the next year or so.

Frankly, the game isn't perfect. The price point is set a bit too high for what we're getting at the moment. Now, that's the key phrase "at the moment". With the two updates it's had and what's to come I'm sure this game will meet expectations. If you wish to be part of this testing phase, I recommend getting it.
