Hello everyone!

With over a year in the making, we are getting closer to bringing Kerbal Space Program towards its next leap forward. Today, we are proud and super excited to announce that Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be available for PC on March 13th, 2018.

Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion brings a lot of new and exciting content to KSP, including the powerful and intuitive Mission Builder, where you will have the tools to create and share your own scenarios with other players. We are also including the History Pack, a set of missions ready to be played immediately, inspired by historical moments in space exploration, and more.

The new Mission Builder puts the process of creating and editing missions in your hands with endless possibilities. You’ll be able to customize your own missions to include launches, landings, rescues, malfunctions, explosions, repairs, and much more. You can set unique victory conditions, add exciting challenges, and place unexpected obstacles to keep other players on their toes as they play through these complex missions. Challenge others to complete your missions by sharing them with the Kerbal Space Program community!

The History Pack includes a variety of pre-made missions inspired by humankind’s own space exploration. Now you can spacewalk, pull off a crash landing, and attempt to recreate some of the most memorable moments inspired by historic events. But with our unique Kerbal twist, of course.

The expansion also includes a bunch of new parts and astronaut suits inspired by the Space Race that you can use throughout Kerbal Space Program!

Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be available for $14.99 (USD) on PC. And yes, we’re keeping our promise that all players who purchased the game through April 2013 will receive the expansion for free. We’ll provide more details on how that will work before launch.

Stay tuned for more news and exciting updates about Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion.

Happy launchings!

Does this also mean 1.4 will be out by then? Because if I recall correctly, KSP needed to update to be compatible....

I didn't expect such a low price! 25-30 bucks seems fair to me, but what do I know?

I'm gonna buy it twice.

Some will say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing multiple times and expecting a different result...

@Mrcarrot, they've got the definition wrong, trust me.

For me, at this state, KSP is worth around 120-150 bucks. I have to find a way to support my hobby; and a present for a friend is always nice :wink:

First, a car in space.

Now, Squad actually announces a release date in advance!

 

Has the world gone crazy?

 

Oh, that explains it.

They still have plenty of opportunity to scrub the launch, though.

I am really happy about the price tag. Means I do not have to seriously consider whether to get the new toys or not.

*rushes to Steam to add this to his wishlist (and see how that price converts to local currency)*

"There is no downloadable content available for this game."

Ah, guessing that won't update for a while... maybe only when it is actually released.

As the Squad Store is no more, I’m guessing those of us who bought the game direct from Squad after the cutoff date will have to buy this expansion from somebody else. Will any of the resellers listed on the Squad website allow us to buy the expansion alone without buying the game again? Or is this expansion going to cost some of us $45 as a result of also needing to repurchase the base game?

SQUAD and many other software developers often release content on Tuesdays. Not Monday, because you need one more day after the panic weekend. Not Friday, or even Thursday, because all your people went home for the weekend and can't hotfix. Wednesday is Wednesday.

If you want to see an example of an early-week release working well for hotfixing, take a look at 1.0.x.

The store will be ready for the expansion, so you will be able to buy it there :wink:

Dare I ask, but will this at some point in the (I assume) far future be available for console players and the 1.4 update content?
