Today I was in for a big surprise. I was thinking about doing a Noob series on Kerbal space program because I bought the game in 2013, did a LOT of mods, always used the automatic launch mods and stuff, but never actually took the time to do something fun with it.

Now I was looking on steam for some more information and there I found out that Squad is going to do an actual expansion on the game. I was.. flabbergasted… and pleasantly surprised.. and now I can’t wait for it to come out.

Ok, what does the expansion entail?

Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion.

We wanted to do something that could enrich the Kerbal experience, offer value to players, bring exciting new content and allow more creativity – all while bringing countless more hours of enjoyment. And with the 1.2.2 release we had a game in an optimal state to tackle an idea that has been in discussion for a while.

We are thrilled and proud to announce Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion. This content filled expansion to the base game will include Mission Builder and History Pack.

Mission Builder

Mission Builder is an exciting new feature that puts the process of creating and editing missions in your hands. We wanted to give you the tools to get the sense of being part of a space program’s Mission Design Division by tailoring your own missions and narratives in a friendly and intuitive interface. Once created, you will be able to easily share your missions with the wider community.

Historie pack and More!

But that is not all, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will include loads of additional content to enjoy. This includesHistory Pack, which are pre-made missions for you to play immediately. You will have the opportunity to re-live historical missions from humankind’s own space history, all with that unique Kerbal Space Program twist! The pack will include a new set of parts and a new astronaut suit for your brave heroes. Imagine walking in the boots of the astronauts who witnessed the majesty of outer space for the first time or landed on other celestial bodies as the first of their kind.

Keeping up with Kerbal Space Program tradition, Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be highly customizable and moddable.

Key Features:

Kerbal Personal Parachute: Your astronauts will now be safer in case of imminent disasters with all new personal parachutes. So next time Jeb is in trouble and all systems are failing, you can simply eject him and activate his parachute. Then, you just have to hope, there’s an atmosphere to slow him down…

Challenge other players: A new addition to Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion will be the concept of scoring. At the end of a mission you will get a numerical score to compare with your friends and the community.
