The second expansion for Kerbal Space Program has arrived today on PC, and with it comes new robotic parts in a variety of sizes. These will encourage the invention of creative vehicles, with more functionality than ever before. Deployed science is another major addition of this expansion, which enhances the experiments and data-collection objectives that have gone hand-in-hand with space exploration. Players will be able to utilize a storage container in their craft that can hold various pieces of science equipment. Upon reaching their destination, players can deploy equipment to monitor and collect data through assorted methods and relay it back to Kerbin, the Kerbals’ home planet. One scientific instrument, the active seismometer, even tasks players to deliberately crash contraptions into a celestial body to gather seismic data!
“We are always listening closely to the ever-expanding Kerbal Space Program Community, and Breaking Ground addresses a long-requested aspect of the game that we have been working hard to fulfill: compelling reasons to explore and research planets,” said Nestor Gomez, Lead Producer at Squad. “Players now have even more reasons to explore the celestial bodies of the solar system.”
“The creativity of the KSP community is something that never ceases to amaze us,” said Michael Cook, Executive Producer at Private Division. “Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion is packed with content that we believe will add countless hours of fresh gameplay, as well as generate some incredible new craft designs from players. We can’t wait to see what they come up with.”
