Space Engineers Update Brings Armageddon to Space

on April 3, 2014 12:35 PM

If any of you grew up in the “MTV” generation, then the movie Armageddon may have been a major part of your youth. From Steve Tyler’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” to what was later called the ADD approach to film editing (with the camera cutting every few seconds), it was a major movie in the 90’s, along with the similarly-themed movie Deep Impact, both of which were based on one major premise: asteroids and meteors are dangerous.

The new Space Engineers update adds environmental hazards in the form of meteor storms, which allow players to have an even greater survival experience when trying to protect their creations on a variety of settings, including Normal, Cataclysm and Armageddon.

Oh, and you can also color more types of blocks (so that they look prettier when destroyed, I suppose).

For newcomers to the game, Space Engineers offers players freedom in designing space stations and spaceships as they wish, with both a range of development tools and a robust physics engine to experiment with, and encouragement to test, fly and crash everything they build.

Space Engineers is available for purchase via the game’s website and it’s Steam page, both of which comes with certain perks, like receiving all future updates for free. For more trailers and update details, check out all of our Space Engineers news.
