Private Division and Squad today announced that Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition: Breaking GroundExpansionis now available for PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One. The second expansion for Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition brings plenty of content for new and current players on console. Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground previously launched on PC in May 2019.
These new features were highly-praised on PC, and we are very excited to bring this expansion to all our console players. Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition: Breaking Ground enriches their experience by providing tons of new ways to venture across the celestial bodies of the solar system. said Nestor Gomez, Lead Producer at Squad.
Breaking GroundExpansion brings several new features to improve the players gameplay experience. The expansion introduces a variety of all-new robotic parts in various useful shapes and sizes, including hinges, rotors, pistons, and more. The addition of these new parts allows players to expand beyond their capabilities in the original Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition by providing the ability to create more complex vehicles and vessels than ever before.
Additionally, players now have an entirely new way to harness collected data from celestial bodies through Deployed Science. This feature provides a modular storage container on their vessel that allows Kerbals to hold various tools such as seismometers, weather collection stations, and more. These instruments can be constructed on planetary surfaces to relay information back to the Kerbal’s home planet, increasing the Kerbals’ understanding of their solar system.
It also changes the experience players have when exploring celestial bodies. New surface features are scattered across planets throughout the system and can be analyzed with a new robotic arm attached to rovers. These surface features include cryovolcanoes, meteorites, craters, and many more mysterious objects for players to investigate. Additionally, the expansionincludes a new, futuristic spacesuit that is included in the expansion so Kerbals can travel to space in style.
Kerbal Space Program has been effective in opening up minds to the initial understandings of exploring space, as well as enjoying widespread critical success, with many hailing it as one of the best science-focused games available. By continuing to update the game and provide high-quality, great KSP content, we bring in more players and pique their interest in the science behind it all. said Michael Cook, Executive Producer at Private Division.
