St4rdust Posted September 2, 2020 Share Posted September 2, 2020 Hey there! Grant here, franchise producer for KSP. I wanted to chime in with a quick update on the ESA content for console. Right now, we are tackling the last few feature additions and are looking towards a release this fall. And while I am here, I figured I would talk just a bit about our approach to updates for KSP Enhanced Edition. When we released Enhanced Edition in 2018, our goal was to bring the KSP experience players loved on PC to consoles. After release, our initial focus was on addressing and resolving console specific issues. Then we turned our attention to bringing over our largest updates, History and Parts Pack and Breaking Ground. Between those updates we looked at what features and parts would have the most impact for console players, and we prioritized those over mirroring the updates from PC. This allowed us to focus on improving the player experience while not being locked into the specific cadence set by PC updates. A great example of this is the addition of a console exclusive launch site on the Mun last year. Another example would be how we brought the maneuver mode from the Room to Maneuver PC update -- even though it was not technically next in line. After releasing the last update in June, we decided to focus on features from the PC Shared Horizons update rather than other content because working with ESA is a huge collaboration for the franchise that we want to share with you, our console players, as quickly as possible. Once we are finished with this update, we will be looking to add a variety of parts, features, and optimizations from 1.8 and 1.9. I hope this helps shed a little bit of light on the decisions and timing of the console update process so far. The best part about this approach is it lets us be flexible, listen to feedback, and continue to make KSP Enhanced Edition great for you. We hope you enjoy our ESA collaboration when it comes out later this year! Happy Launchings! Grant Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
