Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion is now available for PC.
Private Division and Squad announced that Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion is available now for PC. Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion is the second expansion for the PC version of the critically acclaimed space flight simulator, Kerbal Space Program, and brings a wealth of new, compelling content to the game. Above all, this extensive expansion expands the target options once celestial bodies have been reached – players can look forward to even more interesting scientific endeavors and an expanded toolbox.
thanks to the Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion Players have access to new robotic parts including joints, rotors, pistons and more in a range of different sizes. These parts encourage players to build immensely creative spacecraft with more advanced features than ever before.
Mounted Science is another important part of the expansion, enhancing all of the experiments and data collection that have always been an integral part of space exploration. Players can now load various science gear into the storage slots in their spacecraft. Upon reaching the objective, players then set up the equipment, which uses a variety of methods to collect and transmit data to Kerbin, the Kerbals’ home planet. The active seismometer is particularly interesting. It challenges the player to intentionally ram devices into the celestial body to collect seismic data!
Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion also changes the way players explore a celestial body. New surface features are now distributed across planets throughout the solar system and can be scanned with the new rover arm. These surface features include cryovolcanoes, meteors, craters, and many more mysterious objects for players to explore. The expansion also includes a futuristic new space suit for the Kerbals to explore space in style.
“We’re always ready to listen to the ever-growing Kerbal Space Program community. For this reason, Breaking Ground offers the eagerly awaited incentive of many community members to reach and explore planets. We’ve worked long and hard on this game content,” said Nestor Gomez, Squad’s Lead Producer. “So that players now have even more reasons to explore the celestial bodies of the solar system.”
“The creativity of the KSP community will never cease to amaze us,” said Michael Cook, Executive Producer at Private Division. “Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion is chock-full of content that we believe will provide countless hours of fresh gameplay – plus we’re really excited for the incredible new spacecraft designs that our players will dream up. We can’t wait to see their ideas.”
About Kerbal Space Program
In Kerbal Space Program, players take control of the space program of an alien race known as the Kerbals. To do this, they use a wide range of parts to build fully functional spacecraft that glide through space – or not – according to the rules of realistic aerodynamics and orbital physics. Launch your Kerbal crew into orbit and beyond to explore the moons and planets of the Kerbal solar system, building bases and establishing space stations to increase the range of your expedition.
Kerbal Space Program features three game modes: In Science Mode, players conduct space experiments to unlock new technologies and expand the Kerbals’ knowledge base. In career mode, they oversee every aspect of the space program, from construction to strategy, fundraising to upgrades and more. In the sandbox, players can build any spacecraft they can imagine to their heart’s content, with all of the game’s parts and technology at their disposal.
The Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground Expansion is available now for PC, priced at $14.99 MSRP. For more information on the Kerbal Space Program, visit the website.
