Instructions on how to access the public test:

1. Select the game from your library, right click and select properties.
A dialog box with a number of tabs will appear, you’re looking for one that says "publictest".
2. You will see 2 things now, a drop down menu and a text box to enter a beta access code. Enter the password provided here and choose playtest branch from the drop down menu.

We are planning to have 7 servers for this public test; the number of servers will depend on how many engineers suit up for this test.

If you’re not able to participate in this public test it’s all good because we’re planning to have another one soon.

Thanks for reading and have fun!

About This Game



Space Engineers is an open world sandbox game defined by creativity and exploration.

It is a sandbox game about engineering, construction, exploration and survival in space and on planets. Players build space ships, wheeled vehicles, space stations, planetary outposts of various sizes and uses (civil and military), pilot ships and travel through space to explore planets and gather resources to survive. Featuring both creative and survival modes, there is no limit to what can be built, utilized and explored.



Space Engineers features a realistic, volumetric-based physics engine: everything in the game can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed. The game can be played either in single or multiplayer modes.

Volumetric objects are structures composed from block-like modules interlocked in a grid. Volumetric objects behave like real physical objects with mass, inertia and velocity. Individual modules have real volume and storage capacity.



Space Engineers is inspired by reality and by how things work. Think about modern-day NASA technology extrapolated 60 years into the future. Space Engineers strives to follow the laws of physics and doesn't use technologies that wouldn't be feasible in the near future.

Space Engineers concentrates on construction and exploration aspects, but can be played as a survival shooter as well. We expect players will avoid engaging in direct man-to-man combat and instead use their creativity and engineering skills to build war machines and fortifications to survive in space and on planets. Space Engineers shouldn’t be about troops; it should be about the machinery you build.
