Holy crap, Space Engineers just added planets
Space Engineers has been all kinds of awesome for a while now. Today, Keen Software House made its sci-fi multiplayer sandbox even more awesome by adding planets. These aren’t just any planets, but rather “fully deformable, destructible, and persistent planets” that allow players to use their space ships to descend from their space bases to the surface as well as “discover distant planets, build their new home, face new enemies, and even challenge pirates in survival mode,” according to a Keen press release.
Space Engineers is entering its third year on Steam early access and has sold over 1.6 million copies. Check out the planetary update trailer after the cut!
