Kerbal Space Program, one of the most popular indie titles on PC, is about to get a little bigger with their second expansion, Breaking Ground. Adding scientific advancements, robotic arms, and new research, the DLC is arriving as soon as this May.
Breaking Grounds focuses more on scientific research than anything. Players will be able to conduct scientific experiments on various celestial planets, construct research bases, generators, and other technology. The data concluded from the bases and research can then be sent back to earth.
To further cultivate this idea, planet surfaces will be a bit more diverse. Players can find craters, cryovolcanoes, meteors, and more. Take samples of the discoveries, analyze them, and so on. If they're too large to bring back to your base, you'll need to construct robot arms to drill and carry the materials.
On a more technical side, the DLC adds robotics parts of all sorts. This includes hinges, pistons, rotors, and more. Calculate the force, torque, and available power for your devices in the same, in-depth way that Kerbal Space Program is known for.
If you're not looking to drop any cash, the update supporting the DLC will come with some free content for the base game. This includes an expanded action group system, for example.
Kerbal Space Program: Breaking Ground will release on May 30 for $15.
