Kerbal Space Program 2 is the second edition of the popular space conquest simulator, which due to its educational value gained great popularity among amateurs of space flights and astronomy. The first early version of Kerbal Space Program was released in 2011 and was continuously developed by an independent Mexican development studio Monkey Squad. The sequel, commissioned by the publisher - Private Division, owned by the industry giant Take-Two Interactive, was developed by a new team of producers from the American Star Theory Games.

Mechanics

Kerbal Space Program 2 is once again at the helm of the space program prepared by Kerbals, the friendly greenskinned creatures who decide to leave their own planet in the name of science and adventure. The creators rebuilt all the key elements of the gameplay into the basics, while retaining all that made the series so popular.

The fun begins with the preparation of the flight plan and the first rocket, using hundreds of different parts available, such as engines, fuel tanks, capsules for the crew and orbital charges, etc. The fun begins with the preparation of the flight plan and the first rocket, using hundreds of different available parts, such as engines, fuel tanks, capsules for the crew and orbital charges, etc. In this task we will be helped by accessible tutorials, allowing us to learn all the basic elements of the title, which will lead us step by step through the first stages of space exploration. The game offers several levels of difficulty, which influence the behavior of our rockets during the flight and the number of challenges associated with their design and control.

One of the biggest novelties in Kerbal Space Program 2 is the gameplay elements drawn directly from classic novels and science-fiction movies. Players can now build space stations and extraterrestrial colonies on the surface of alien planets and moons. This option is associated with many previously absent gameplay mechanics, such as collecting raw materials. With the appropriate technological level, we can now construct various facilities to form the base, as well as build vehicles such as rovers, which will facilitate the transport of materials and further exploration.

The next step in space exploration is to build a ship equipped with a propulsion system to visit neighbouring solar systems. The authors have prepared many interesting surprises in the interstellar space, as well as interesting celestial bodies, such as Charr (a glowing iron planet), Ovin (a super-earth with rings and inexorable gravity) and Rask and Rusk, which form a unique double planetary system.

Game modes

For the first time in the series, Kerbal Space Program 2 offers the long-awaited possibility of cooperative multiplayer entertainment, which takes on a new meaning thanks to the option of joint construction of cosmic colonies.

Technical aspects

Kerbal Space Program 2 offers a brand new graphics engine that supports advanced graphics effects, making the game at the highest level of detail drastically different from the original. It is worth noting that just like the first part of the series, the production supports fans of fashion, both those who change the audiovisual setting and those who introduce new elements, such as advanced object physics.
