Space sim Kerbal Space Program gets its first PC expansion on 13th March 2018.

Making History adds a mission builder and a history pack, the latter of which contains missions inspired by historical moments in space exploration. Perhaps it's not too late to include a mission where you ride Elon Musk's Tesla to Mars!

Digging deeper, the mission builder lets you create missions that include launches, landings, rescues, malfunctions, explosions, repairs and more. As you'd expect, you can share your creations with other players.

As for the missions inspired by historical moments, expect spacewalking and crash landing, but with a Kerbal twist. There are a number of new parts and astronaut suits inspired by the space race you can use, too.

These days, Kerbal Space Program is published by Private Division, the indie-focused label set up by Take-Two. It's still developed by Mexican studio Squad though. Squad said the expansion costs 9.99, but all players who bought the game before April 2013 will get it for free.
