UNITED STATES: Space exploration fans eagerly awaited the Early Access launch of Kerbal Space Program 2 last Friday, but many were disappointed by the game’s performance issues.
Currently holding a “Mixed” user rating on Steam, players have cited severe performance issues as among the game’s most notable flaws.
Developer Intercept Games posted a Steam news update shortly before the Early Access version’s release, apologising for its communication regarding PC specs.
The developer also updated the game’s recommended specs to reflect what players can expect going into the game.
According to Intercept Games, the current spec recommendations will not remain static forever.
Since the game is still in early access, the developers are optimising the game’s performance. The PC-spec recommendations will inevitably be updated as the performance improves.
The developer assured fans it would try to notify them when specific updates substantially improved the gaming experience.
One method through which the developer plans on improving the game’s performance is by optimising the fuel flow and resource system.
At the moment, equipping your ship with a sizable number of engines negatively affects the game’s framerate, according to Intercept Games.
The developer acknowledged that the system needs more work and hoped that by improving it, the game would run better.
However, Kerbal Space Program 2 requires numerous other fixes for it to operate satisfactorily.
In addition to performance issues, players have also reported several bugs, which the developers will need to work on as well.
Despite the game’s current issues, fans remain hopeful that Intercept Games will continue to work on improving the game.
As one Steam user wrote in a review, “There are definitely issues with the game, but there is so much potential here.” “I can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s finished.”
It remains to be seen how much work Kerbal Space Program 2 will need before it can reach its full potential, but Intercept Games has promised to keep fans updated on its progress.
For now, fans of the space exploration genre will have to wait and see how the game develops in the coming weeks and months.
