PlayStation 4 owners better brush up on their rocket science.

Sony announced today that Kerbal Space Program, a game that has you designing, launching, and flying your own space craft, is coming out for the PlayStation 4 on July 12. Kerbal Space Program officially launched for PC last year after a lengthy early access period that started in 2013. It’s one of the most notable indie games in recent history for its focus on creativity and realistic physics.

“With completely redesigned controls and gameplay that’s challenging yet fun, you’ll have everything needed to conquer space with the Kerbals,” developer Squad’s chief executive officer Ezequiel Ayarza wrote on PlayStation’s blog.

We knew that console versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were coming this month, but we didn’t know exactly when. We don’t have a date for the Xbox One version, but it will likely launch on or around the same time.

Kerbal Space Program is also getting a Wii U version, but it doesn’t have a release window.
