Kerbal Space Program is Finally Coming to Xbox One and PS4
< >
It's a game that features little green people trying to start a space program, it's hooked everyone from kids to NASA engineers and has been widely regarded as one of the best physics-based games on the market. To sum it up, Kerbal Space Program is a huge, huge hit. For many years, though, this powerful physics-based spaceflight simulator has only been available to PC gamers. That's all about to change now, because developers Squad have just announced that Kerbal Space Program is finally coming to Xbox One and PS4.

Opening quote
"Following the huge success Kerbal Space Program has had on PC with players and critics alike, we want to give console players the opportunity to play Kerbal Space Program in this redefined user experience," said Squad's CEO, Ezequiel Ayarza. "It has been a long road but finally we are confident of the quality of the game on consoles. An awesome control experience awaits you, as well as easier access to the wonderful world of space exploration, where even exploding is a lot of fun. We invite everyone to enjoy the excitement of flying rockets built by yourself, landing on planets and much more!"
Closing quote

Kerbal Space Program features three separate game modes. Sandbox, which allows you to experiment with as many wacky spacecraft designs your mind can concoct. Science mode, which sees users help further the Kerbal's scientific cause by conducting experiments and collecting the data needed to create revolutionary new technologies. Finally, there's career mode, which is probably the closest you'll ever come to being the Chief Administrator of a major space agency.

Such is the accuracy of KSP's physics engine, NASA has previously uploaded real-life mission plans into the game for users to play around with and find bugs. As part of their plan to land humans on an asteroid, NASA uploaded similar potential missions to KSP's platform to see how the public faired. Ironically, some of those who became most-addicted to those missions were the NASA staff themselves!

Kerbal Space Program will be heading to Xbox One and PS4 at some point next month.
