Surviving Mars Expansion Coming Later This Year, Prepare for the Space Race

Paradox Interactive has announced that Surviving Mars will soon be receiving its first expansion update in the form of Surviving Mars: Space Race.

The new expansion will turn things around a little bit and put you in direct competition with the other countries of Earth. You’ll have to colonise Mars whilst competing for the limited resources the planet has to offer.

The developer was kind enough to summarise the key features of Surviving Mars: Space Race, so here are the key details:

  • A Challenger Appears: Compete for milestones, already limited resources, 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 gotta follow the money. Each sponsor comes with its own sets of Challenges to complete as you further their individual goals for colonization.
  • Represent the Dome 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.

Surviving Mars released earlier this year to pretty decent reviews, especially from Pure PlayStation. If you’ve yet to give this management sim a go, have a read of my review through here.
