The major game server providers have now started offering Space Engineers server hosting. The cheapest and best server hosts for this game are listed at the top of the price list.
This massively popular space building game rose from its original simple form created by Keen Software House. The game quickly grew a die hard audience and evolved into an advanced crafting sandbox experience. With the addition of wheels and logic Space Engineers continues to become a dream game for geeks who’s heart is set out of this world.
Space Engineers is still going strong after all these years and the crowds didn’t disappear to Medieval Engineers like many people believed would be the next natural progression for its players. Medieval Engineers lacked any clear goal as a game and quickly became boring. When games like Ark: Survival Evolved was giving players an advancement tree and more sophisticated game play its no surprise players left.
In Space Engineers you can easily build gigantic space craft that fly or drive on planets. The game started off as a simple sandbox game that was like Minecraft creative mode but in space. As the game exploded in popularity the developers added a survival mode which requires the mining of resources in order to create more building blocks. Another recommendation from the Space Engineers community that was acted on was the addition of planets. With these bodies now floating through space people could build bases and land based vehicles to drive around.
Space Engineers still enjoys a decent sized audience of die hard crafters according to SteamCharts. Unique genre smashing titles like SE usually keep their fan base until something better comes along which it seems hasn’t happened yet.
Their isn’t a huge difference in the price between the best and cheapest Space Engineers server hosting providers.
The current cheapest provider in our list is a game hosting company thats been around for many years. RoxServers have a relatively good reputation among the gaming community and a decent sized catalogue of games they cater for. They do tend to focus on survival style games though so if this is what you are into then Rox know their stuff about this genre of games.
These guys are great for mod support as they have a large limit on RAM that you are able to take advantage of.
The king of game server hosting companies is GameServers.com. They are backed by one of the biggest web hosting companies in the world who own data centres and all sorts of high end technology.
These guys are known for their incredible levels of support and rock solid platform. If you don’t mind spending the additional cost then you will be rewarded with a high quality service. If you look at the reviews we get for them you will see that they don’t often leave their customers unhappy.
The game receives a lot of positive feedback from players on the official Steam page for Space Engineers. A lot of people have recently started to talk about the lack of updates to the game meaning it is less likely to have a long shelf life. People are speaking about the game being replaced by games like Dual Universe.
Another common theme among reviews is the criticism of the game slowing down as the new additions to it had been made. This could be a sign that the developers have added new ideas but not efficiently optimised the code to use the computers resource.
If you are mad for space games and love building then these following sandbox style games should be right for you.
A recent addition to the sandbox in space genre of games, Stationeers is a highly technical game. If you thought Minecraft and games like that are too easy then this game will blow your socks off. Players must construct their base using metal parts and a mix of tools with airlocks and other life support systems. You also have to wire and plumb a mixture of systems without any real help from an in game tutorial.
Stationeers will have you scratching your head for days but once you crack it you will feel like a god. You can find the game available now on Steam for a fair price considering the amount of content in it.
Another space based game with crafting elements but less about building craft. This game is a like a very technical survival game where you have to collect items lying around and combine them. Its a bit of a MacGyver in space kind of game but if you love a mystery you will love Hellion.
Hellion has a strong multiplayer element as you work in teams of 4 towards a common goal. Much like other co-op games the element of teamwork can really add a new layer to your gameplay. A lot of newer games are encouraging teamwork in smaller groups to increase the social element.
If you weren’t lured in by the last game then maybe you will be by Empyrion. In this title you actually do get to build your space ship, although not as in depth as Space Engineers. This game focuses more on the exploration and economy side of space travel with enemies and harvesting built into the game rather than a side product like SE.
Many people speak very highly about Empyrion – Galactic Survival and its available to buy now on Steam.
This title isn’t set in space but the engineer sandbox that it contains is incredible. In Scrap Mechanic you can build all sorts of vehicles and structures and then use them however you want. Their is currently no survival mode so all you can do is practice for when they add that mode. The game does have some troubles when you try to build BIG but for the price that it sells at on Steam you cant really complain about the Early Access title.
If you are struggling to find the ideal server to join as the in game browser isn’t up to the job check out our sister project. BestServers is a site with a lightning fast server list and shows you the banners by default so you can get an idea of the servers environment without having to join.

Planets! We finally have planets! I have been playing space engineers since day one and have racked up so many hours and tried out so many space engineers server hosting companies in order to improve on the early bugs and it's finally at the stages we have all been dreaming of! Keen software house have been working so hard to add NPC ships, Jump drives, Power (Solar) and of course planet that are absolutely massive! It’s insane how good this game is now and I couldn't recommend it highly enough as it's finally stepped up to the next level. Now the game has so much to offer it really is worth picking up some space engineers server hosting from one of these companies as all the new features are overworking my computer hence why i needed the extra server space in order to host me and my friends :)
It’s Super addictive. What used to be a game that was purely set in space based around a couple of asteroids has now become a fully functional exploring sandbox with worlds and NPC’s to meet and discover. The latest release has seen the community boom in size and they are some of the best people around and we are so grateful to have such a great development team that has been listing to all our comments and feedback every step of the way. If you want the full space engineers experience that it’s worth having your own private space engineers server hosting as this does allow you to have a lot of control and access on what you want in your server including the planet count, NPC ships and loads more! Have fun in space and come say hi on the steam community as we are a friendly bunch.
If you are a fan of creativity and originality then Space-engineers is the place to be, using the tools found in this game you are able to create your own colony in space while upgrading your spacecraft allowing for the multiple terraforming of different planet. Now Space-engineers is very similar to minecraft but gives you the original idea of traveling to the stars, as a personal space nerd i'm quite impressed with this game. While simplistic to play their is a small focus into general space knowledge, which i actively encourage in gaming, i mean we all love learning! One of my personal favorite moments of Space-engineers was building my space cruiser to travel through space with, the personal customization i was able to add to the ship was pretty impressive. Space-engineers loses marks for its lack of diverse planets, while there is plenty of different ones to find there is nowhere as near as many as you should expect for a current game. Other faults come with the lack of game play choice, while it's fun to build settlements on various different planets they could at the least offer a variation option of game play for us to chase. Space-engineers simple lack of diverse play allows for the game to become quickly monotonous and boring, which is a shame considering it promotes you to create these fabulous structures and civilizations. I found that the online just tended to result in players clashing over the structures of their civilizations and quickly led to rage quitting, a few servers however i was able to find a community of players working together to terraform a whole planet which turned into something to admire. Whatever you think of the game you will be able to find the cheap Space-engineers hosting you're looking for on our website.
I have player nearly a thousand hours for this game and can happily say that this review is going to be a positive one :) I used to find that i rarely got hocked to sandbox games as I was never really a fan of minecraft. However Space engineers has really opened my eyes and shown me a new side to sandbox games entirely. If your a fan (Building, space, exploring, crafting and generally doing anything you can think of in space!) Then this is the game for you 100%
have been playing this game for a couple of months now and I can say with confidence that the developers - Keen software house are one of the best new developers around. With constant weekly updates and new mechanics that are released when promised, its easy to see why so many community members are happy to pitch in on the forums suggesting content and spotting bugs. If you like the idea of building in space, including ships and space stations then you should check out space engineers.
I went from trying this game on a free to play event to owning my own dedicated server with a constant stream of 10 - 20 people on it building and playing space RP, best part about my community is that the server is up 24/7 7 days a week so come join in! So happy i found this game and I would recommend it to anyone and have already bought several copies for my friends to get them involved.
When space engineers first came out many moons ago I was so excited to get stuck in to it and conquer the galaxies. There was a few minor bugs and issues when the game was released but keen have worked crazy hard of the last few years to get space engineers up to scratch. It's a shame that they have taken a lot of their development time and stuck it in to the flop which is medieval engineers.. the community is no existent and no one plays it! Please just continue working on space engineers.
"Really have been trying to get into this game since I play medieval Engineers, but I just don’t get the hype… Medieval Engineers is so much better. Sorry folks :@" What are you on about???? Medieval Engineers is meh. Space engineers will always be the better of the 2.
Amazing Game with a amazing developers, Buy this game!!!!!!

Really have been trying to get into this game since I play medieval Engineers, but I just don't get the hype... Medieval Engineers is so much better. Sorry folks :@
So many people seem to hate on space engineers for some reason saying "It has a short shelf live." The only problem with these people is that they are playing with other people which "Yes" can become very boring very quickly!! It's a sandbox game, so you do really need to be playing online with the community or with your friends to get the most out of the game. If you have space engineers and are one of these people that got bored of it after like 2 hours of playing it then please please find some people to play with if you want to find out what the game is really all about. That's my rant over. A great game that should really have its dues.
The only game I really play these days, just seem to get lost in it when i get back from work. Loads better then medieval engineers!!!
This game is so good, its just a shame that alot of the community that was playing at the start have now dropped off :( I'm Hoping the full release will bring a lot of players back to the space station again.
