Space Engineers has received its biggest update yet, allowing for planetary landing.


Space Engineers has been updated to include planets, a feature that’s been in development for a year. These planets follow the same properties of space rocks, they’re destructible, volumetric and persistent.

Planets can stretch as far as 120 km in diameter, which the developer says translates to a surface area of 45 238,93421 km2. Planets also have gravity that affect all objects.

Here’s developer Keen Software giving you a look at your new mining/building locations.
