Oxygen Not Included artwork for the Spaced Out! expansion

After two years in development, the colony simulator Oxygen Not Included has just received its very first expansion - Spaced Out! As you would expect from the name alone, Spaced Out! brings with it the ability to explore the universe with improved and modular rockets, simultaneously manage multiple colonies on multiple planetoids, mess around with nuclear power and radiation, as well as hopefully tame a bunch of new space-critters.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in actual gameplay, wonder no more as Klei have released a brief trailer highlighting just what Spaced Out! is all about. Have a peek:

Considering how challenging the base game is, it should come as little surprise to hear that the Spaced Out! expansion has continued in exactly the same direction. The new systems are highly interwoven and will require a great deal of patience and knowledge from you in order to function properly, with the price of failure usually being the swift demise of your colony. That might sound a bit rough right now, but it's actually not that bad since the real fun in Oxygen Not Included comes from the struggle itself!

With that little bit of warning aside, you can learn more about the Spaced Out! expansion, as well as check out some of the user reviews, over at Steam. Have fun, and do try not to irradiate your entire colony!
