Squad is looking to expand the gameplay of Kerbal Space Program by releasing a new expansion called Making History. The expansion adds a new Mission Builder and History Pack into the space questing title. The new features let you create and play historic space missions.
While no cost or release date has been assigned to the new expansion, Squad has confirmed that they will keep the promise they made to early adopters. Players who purchased Kerbal Space Program before April 2013 will get the expansion for free.
Either way, if you were an early adopter or not, here are the key features that Squad has listed as being in the new content.
Simple interface: Using an intuitive drag and drop node interface, you can easily create new and exciting new missions for yourself or others to enjoy. Creators can also add constraints such as time, fuel and parts limits; as well as unexpected mission events.
Recreating history: Included in Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion is the History Pack. Players will be able to experience the trials and tribulations of the early days of Space Exploration on missions inspired by real life historical events.
New parts: Aside from mission creations tools, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will have additional parts such as new fuel tanks, adapters, decouplers, fairings and command pods… inspired by both American and Soviet space programs!
Kerbal Personal Parachute: Your astronauts will now be safer in case of imminent disasters with all new personal parachutes. So next time Jeb is in trouble and all systems are failing, you can simply eject him and activate his parachute. Then, you just have to hope, there’s an atmosphere to slow him down…
Challenge other players: A new addition to Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be the concept of scoring. At the end of a mission you will get a numerical score to compare with your friends and the community.
