The Kerbal Space Program [GOG, Steam] developers Squad have announced a big expansion named 'Making History' and it sounds rather splendid.

They will be adding in a fully featured Mission Builder with the ability to share your creations with the community.

It will also come with a 'History Pack' which will contain a bunch of brand new missions for you to attempt right away. These will be real historical missions from our own history, which sounds damn interesting. That's the kind of thing that might get me to truly try the game properly.

They will also add in a scoring system, enabling you to see how good you are compared to your friends.

Oh, and your astronauts will also be able to have personal parachutes for those inevitable launch failures.

What makes me really love Squad, is that the expansion will be free to anyone who purchased the game before April 2013. I seem to own the game on Steam, but I've no idea when I acquired a copy of it, so I am unsure if I will be included in that or not.

What? What's that you say? Time to start playing Kerbal again? No problem!

Parachutes? No my Kerbals love to glide in to land at 1,000 mph & go out in a blaze of glory, at least that's what I tell everyone at their funerals.

I was given it for Christmas 2013 so the DLC won't be free for me.

Too bad - I just miss the cut. I bought KSP in December of 2013. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to give Squad more of my money.

I tried one of their free beta versions a long time ago. even though I really like sandbox games the original KSP didn't seem to have much for goals other than just seeing if you could get a hunk of metal to fly.
I hope they continue to add more expansions like this. It has finally peaked my interest

You wouldn't recognise it now, there's so much more to it these days, you have specific tasks that earn you money so you can pay to research bigger & better parts for your rockets, there are space bases to build & launch, other planets to land on, it's not just seeing if you can get a rocket to fly anymore.

That game is one of my worst game purchases ever. Who makes a multi platform game and makes it to use Windows only fonts. Got to love it when you start up the game and there is not text anywhere.
