Surviving Mars: Space Race expansion to blast off on November 15th

Posted by , | Views: 2,961

Get ready to blast off towards the red planet once again, as the Surviving Mars: Space Race expansion is set to release on November 15th.

The expansion is going to be extremely interesting, changing the gameplay and overall feel quite a lot. Here's some highlights:

  • A Challenger Appears: Compete for milestones and anomalies with several other AI colonies backed by rival sponsors attempting to set roots on Mars and vie to become this planet’s superpower. You can trade with, respond to distress calls for, issue distress calls to, and even steal important colonists from these competitor colonies as you establish your territory on Mars.
  • Earth to Mars, repeat, Earth to Mars: No matter how deep in space you go, you need to follow the money. Each sponsor comes with unique, new sets of goals to complete as you further their individual goals for colonization.
  • Represent the Home Team: Each sponsor has their own unique vehicle and building that only their colonies can construct and take advantage of in their mission. Express the individuality of your space-faring conglomerate inside and out of your domes.
  • New Money, New Problems: Meet two new players in the fight for the final frontier. Japan and Brazil are now available as brand new mission sponsors and are ready to move heaven and Mars to make their mark!
  • Expect the Unexpected: Experience narrative events throughout your colonization process that help reveal the realities of life in the dome and challenge your management skills.

For a look over what's new in video form, there's also a new one up to feast your holes on:

I've been provided a review code for the expansion, so I can ensure it's all working nicely on Linux and give it some thoughts at release, so do keep an eye out on or just after the 15th when it releases. I can at least confirm for now that it works.

This exciting expansion will be available from Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

Looks like an exciting update, will give this game another shot when it lands (pun intended) :-)
