Kerbal Space Program getting free DLC due to upset fans

kerbal space program

Kerbal Space Program isn’t even out yet, but the game is already sparking some controversy over what some fans considered a promise of free DLC. The developers have stated that anyone who purchased the game would receive “free updates”, by which they meant bug-fixes and minor enhancements. However, many gamers took the phrase “updates” to mean anything that was released in the future, including DLC. In recognition of the fact that some folks may have been misled by the phrasing, the developer has agreed to give anyone who has bought in free access to any expansions that are released. You can read their full response here.

If you’d like to get in on the free DLC, you have until the end of April to purchase the game. Keep in mind that Kerbal Space Program is currently part of the Steam Early Access program, meaning that the game is playable but still under development. If you aren’t quite  sure yet, a demo is available for download on the Kerbal Space Program Steam page.
