Giant Army's follow-up to the 2011 space simulator Universe Sandbox has entered Steam Early Access. Universe Sandbox 2 promises to allow players to "create and destroy on an unimaginable scale," and it looks pretty sweet while doing it. Here's the game's latest trailer:
While Universe Sandbox 2 is still in active development, Giant Army says that it's already better and more fully-featured than the original. Already, the game boasts the capability to simulate "gravity, climate, collision, and material interactions". Players will also be able to terraform planets, set off solar flares, and create black holes.
Giant Army also has a pretty ambitious set of features it'd like to add to the sandbox, including life simulation, missions, and support for both SteamVR and Oculus Rift. The company plans to show off more of Universe Sandbox 2 at PAX Prime later this week in Seattle, too.
A proper release for Universe Sandbox 2 is still a ways off—creator Dan Dixon told Rock Paper Shotgun that development will go on for "at least another year". If you're interested in jumping in early, the game will set you back $24.99.
