Update 01.021.024 has been released. Survival mode is now available in Space Engineers! (This is the first "Survival mode" update and you may experience a number of bugs which will be fixed within the next updates). We have also changed the way you start building a small ship. Now you can start by placing a landing gear which can be attached to any surface - instead of a light armor block cube which was before. Also, we have added some new game scenarios, new music and sounds and tons of new features related to the Survival mode.

You can find more details about the "Survival mode" update on Marek's latest blog post: http://blog.marekrosa.org/2014/03/space-engineers-survival-mode-update_13.html
