Private Division announced that their milestone space game Kerbal Space Program will come to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in an enhanced edition.
Kerbal Space Program is one of the best, if not the best, space simulation title ever. Even if the game is 10 years old now, the title still holds up and Private Division will go next-gen. Apart from their upcoming sequel, KSP will get an enhanced edition for next-gen consoles.
KSP Enhanced Edition goes up to 1440p
Private Division announced a new-gen update for their game coming later this year. The target launch date should be around Fall, which gives them a little more time to work. Following the game’s release in 2018, a next-gen update will be much appreciated.
KSP holds up quite well and doesn’t need a ton of overhaul when it comes to its graphical fidelity. It is a space simulation with a tinge of comedy title after all, so the game works perfectly.
“Playing Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X results in a technical boost, with the action running at Quad high definition 1440p and an improved framerate over previous console versions,” says the update post.
“Xbox Series S runs Kerbal Space Program at 1080p and also boasts better framerate. The additional system memory on these consoles results in a more stable game experience and allows for an increase of part count on player’s crafts and contraptions. This release benefits from upgraded shaders and textures allowing for more stunning overall visual impressions for players.”
Private Division also releases 1.12 update for PC
Kerbal Space Program should look awesome once it receives its enhanced edition. It helps that gamers who already own the game on previous consoles can get it for free. For those jumping in for the first time, KSP should cost around $40.
To celebrate the game’s 10th year, Private Division will also release a new patch for their PC version. They announced a few great features that the community asked for.
“This update also includes many new requested features & quality of life additions to improve the user experience of KSP, such as a huge revamp to craft and game save loading menu-system, a large amount of wheel and landing leg improvements, and much more,” says a separate update.
For those who are still waiting Kerbal Space Program 2, fans would need to wait a bit more. KSP 2 will come out next year, with “details coming out at a later date,” so Kerbal Space Program should be enough for now.
