Squad, developers of Kerbal Space Program, have just released update 1.1 (nicknamed the Turbo Charged update). After almost a year of work, the Turbo Charged update brings with it a host of changes.

The main upgrade to the game comes from the switch to the Unity 5 engine, giving players a smoother experience all around. There are also 64-bit binaries for both OSX and Windows that will allow users to take their mod support to another level.

Squad, developer of slapstick (actually, I suppose that depends on how you play it) space programme simulator Kerbal Space Program, has announced the second 'Official Mod' for the game, called Asteroid Day.

The result of a partnership with the B612 Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to planetary defense against asteroids and various other bits of space debris that could theoretically crash into the Earth and snuff us out, Asteroid Day tasks you with setting up a space telescope in orbit near Venus to look out for errant space-boulders.

Cult space mission simulator Kerbal Space Program might be winging its way to the PS4, but developer Squad is keen to reassure PC players that the console port won't affect development on the game's original platform.

Kerbal runs on the Unity engine, which the team says is flexible enough to make porting the game to consoles a relatively easy job. In fact, they even suggest that partnering up with Flying Tiger Entertainment for the PS4 version will aid the development process on the PC.
