Did you miss out on sending members of tiny Kerbal alien race into space because you previously had nowhere to enjoy Kerbal Space Program? That's all about to change if you've got a PlayStation 4, as the quirky little simulator is launching July 12th.

We already knew the game would soon be making the leap to PS4, but now that there's a concrete date it's time to get geared up for heading up the Kerbals' burgeoning space program. For the uninitiated, it's up to you to build rockets, spacecrafts and other vehicles for the Kerbals to travel to space and complete special missions with.

You'd better pay close attention, because if you fail, you'll send them hurtling into space in a craft that could self-destruct. Do you want that on your hands?

The PlayStation 4 version of the sim includes redesigned controls and gameplay, and the DualShock 4's triggers and sticks will be implemented to allow for added precision. It's an adorable game amidst some of the carnage that can occur, and absolutely worth picking up.
