Surviving Mars will put players in charge of planning, designing, and maintaining a sustainable colony on the red planet, and players will be able to undertake this mission next month on the Xbox One, on the PlayStation4 console, and on Linux, MacOS, and Windows PCs. Pre-orders will begin later this month, allowing aspiring Martians-to-be the chance to be among the first colonists and collect in-game pre-order bonuses. Surviving Mars will be available starting at a suggested retail price of $39.99 on all platforms.
The challenges awaiting players will be many - and not all of them will be the ones science has prepared for.
In Surviving Mars, players will lead a colonization effort on the surface of Mars, from the very first rovers and supply drops to the construction of suitable habitats for brave settlers from Earth. Every colonist will be vital to the mission as the colony struggles to gain a foothold where the environment is hostile and resources are scarce. With each success, however, players will gain the ability to expand further, and even establish a thriving society - and lead a new generation that has never known the Earth.
Paradox and Haemimont also revealed several details and features of Surviving Mars which players may expect when the game launches. Couch colonists can look forward to ultra-high-definition visuals for their missions, with 4K support offered on both the Xbox One X and PlayStation4 Pro consoles. For PC players, Surviving Mars will offer community-created modifications with full modding tools and support - including mods available at launch from some of Paradox's most talented community creators.
