Space Engineers is in an open world of asteroid space field, where you will enter as an astronaut (space engineer). You can change different settings of the world, including the startup scenario. Add a name and description to the world and select your game mode to start.
The primary gameplay of Space Engineers is building up with two basic modes: Creative and Survival. Creative Mode features unlimited resources, which are used to create structures instantly. On the other hand, you would have to mine resources in the Survival Mode.
Multiplayer Feature was not available in the game until March 2014, but now it is now on hand and can be accessed to host the world and invite other players to join. The world can also be restricted for anyone by setting it to private or friends only. You may not allow griefers to enter your world and mess up with your constructions. Although there are dedicated servers available to play online with others, but you may experience serious lagging issues.
