Kerbal Space Program 1.0 blasts off today

Kerbal Space Program 1.0 launch

Update: It's out now.

Today, Kerbal Space Program leaves the confines of Earth’s atmosphere and buggers off into space. Yes, it’s launch day, and at an unspecified time KSP will break free from Early Access and receive one of its largest updates since it landed on Steam.

Want more from Kerbal? Here are the best Kerbal Space Program mods.

“It certainly feels different,” said lead developer Felipe Falanghe (HarvesteR) in a AMA last night. “Technically, this release is no different from the 25 previous ones, but there is something about going for 1.0 that definitely feels special. I have to say though, I’m very pleased with the features we managed to get into the game for this release. There’s always more stuff we want to add to the game, but it really feels like the game has reached a definite state of completion now.”

Launch, of course, is only the start of any space mission. Squad will continue to update Kerbal Space Program for the foreseeable future, but not with DLC. 

“We won't do DLC, if we ever ask you for even a penny again, it has to be something huge and that adds a lot of gameplay to the game,” producer Miguel Sabido (Maxmaps) said in the AMA. “We like expansions like Morrowind and Age of Empires II had, not DLC. “

Kerbal Space Program 1.0 launches later today.

Love the way these guys treated Kerbal in Early Access. I'm shit at the game, but it's refreshing to see the support they got and the way they went about developing it.

Yeah, someone (maybe some game journalist) should make a documentary about this. Cause KSP is the almost perfect example of what Early access should be. We should just all send them champagne bottles.
