Developer Squad has announced that their award winning space exploration game, Kerbal Space Program, is coming to current-gen consoles this year as a digital download.

KSP lets players create their own spacecraft, launch it into space to explore the galaxy, and visit a vast amount of planets; assuming you can get it off the ground! Once you’ve made it to deep space, KSP lets you capture asteroids, launch mining programs to find resources across the furthest reaches of the solar system and build space stations around planets you discover.


The game features three game modes:

  • In Sandbox mode lets players build anything their imagination can come up with
  • Science Mode lets players perform scientific experiments and advance the knowledge of Kerbals to unlock new technologies
  • And finally, Career Mode puts players in control of every aspect of the space program including crew management, reputation building, as well as embarking on side missions called ‘contracts’ to earn funds and upgrade your space center facilities.

Kerbal Space Program will release on PS4 and Xbox One on July 12th and July 15th respectively while the Wii U version will release sometime this winter.
