Surviving Mars launches March 15th and 20 Minutes of New Gameplay Footage
Build a colony on the red planet as Surviving Mars launches on March 15th. Get a 20 minute look with some new gameplay footage.
The upcoming colony building Surviving Mars finally has a release date and will be launching into space on March 15th. Paradox Interactive and Haemimont Games (best known for the Tropico games) are allowing players to experience a new type of simulation game as they take a trip to Mars to become the first people to colonize the planet. You will be able to pilot space rovers, co-ordinate supply drops and even construct habitats for your colonists to live, work and sleep in. Colonists will be vital to the mission by dealing with limited resources and surviving the harsh conditions of the planet. If you manage to prove yourself then you can expand your colony even further until the planet is colonised. You will also be given a randomised research tree to begin with, and each game will be different from the next. Dangers are also present on Mars, and you should keep a close eye on your colonists to make sure they are protected from anything that lurks beneath the surface!
Thanks to ZAM Official we can also get a glimpse of 20 mintues of fresh new gameplay action from the upcoming colony building game. See how a colony can grow on this harsh red planet, with multiple outposts and dangerous weather.
Building a sustainable colony in space: Building on a planet not fit for human life challenges you to build a smart, functional colony. Bad planning isn’t about traffic jams, it’s about survival of your colonists. You really don’t want rolling blackouts in a city constructed in a place without oxygen.
Individually simulated colonists: Each colonist is a unique individual with problems and strengths that influence the needs and behavior of the other colonists. Things can get really interesting if your chief scientists develops alcoholism after one too many long nights in the lab.
Futuristic Space Dome construction: Retro-futuristic super structures housing colonists, factories and commercial buildings with their own “neighborhood personality.” Create colonies that value science over everything else, while tired workers drink their pay away at a local bar, or attempt a utopia among the stars.
Exploration of Mars’ secrets: Inspired by the classic sci-fi of Asimov and Clarke, Surviving Mars holds many secrets. During each playthrough players may encounter one of Mars’ individually crafted mysteries. Uncovering these secrets might bring your colony great fortune, or terrible ruin. What is that sphere that manifested itself outside colony HUB B, and is it friendly?
Randomized research tree: Combine static and random research through experimentation, which allows for a different experience for each journey through the game. Attain new scientific breakthroughs by exploring the uncharted terrain of Mars's surface.
Unique retro-futuristic aesthetic: A sleek, modern take on the bright futurism of the 1960s. A time of exploration and adventure.
Expansive mod support: Craft your own fantastic buildings, parks or even a mystery to share through Surviving Mars’s extensive and convenient modding tools. Share your finest creations with the community to build the perfect society.
Surviving Mars launches on March 15th for PC and consoles, those looking to get it on PC can also enjoy community created mods with tools to expand their game even further available from launch!
