Space Engineers - Finally moving from Alpha to Beta phase

After three years, Space Engineers has finally entered the Beta phase of development.

Following up on a pretty large update last week, the ever-expanding space-based sandbox game sees new features such as a total block redesign, new multiplayer netcode, and a tutorial campaign installed as part of its stable launch.

Marek Rosa, the big man of the developer Keen Software, gives us this bit from a blog post:

"This update also marks the transition of Space Engineers moving to Beta phase. The most important thing to remember with this announcement is that there is still more content, improvements and many optimizations to come. As an example, we can confirm that one of the things being worked on currently is a new HUD which should significantly increase your immersion in the game. Beta simply means that we feel the game now has a solid foundation."

We've got some videos here, the first showcasing some of the new features:

And the second is some gunplay and space battles:

There are a lot of changes, all of which you can check out here.
