Space Engineers is a realistic sandbox game focused on engineering, constructing, and maintaining space machinery. Players build space ships and space stations for different tasks (civil and military), pilot ships, and perform asteroid mining. All objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged, and destroyed.
Space Engineers concentrates on construction, but can also be played as a tactical shooter. Players will be encouraged to use creativity and engineering to build war machines and fortifications rather than engaging in single player direct combat.
