Private Division has announced it’ll be bringing Kerbal Space Program: Enhanced Edition to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles later in the year.
The enhancements in question include an upgraded resolution and improved framerates, but will also feature full mouse and keyboard support. We’re also promised advanced shaders, better textures and the slightly vague “additional performance improvements.”
This news comes in time for the tenth anniversary of the original release of Kerbal Space Program. The space-faring simulator first launched on PC in a beta state in 2011, before heading to Early Access in 2013. It launched (pun intended) fully in 2015 and made its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 a year later before an improved version for those consoles in 2018.
The game’s sequel Kerbal Space Program 2 is currently in development, and is expected to launch for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in 2022. In the meantime, you can check out a 20-minute mini-doc celebrating ten years of the series below.
Kerbal Space Program: Enhanced Edition will head to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 this fall. It’ll also be a free upgrade to those who already own the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
