Limbic Entertainment’s open-world survival shooter, Memories of Mars, is set to release on PS4 and Xbox One, as revealed by a new rating by the PEGI rating board in Europe.
The PEGI rating board recently rated Memories of Mars for PS4 and Xbox One, awarding the game a rating of PEGI 12 due to the violence found within the game, as well as scenes of a horrific nature. It is a survival/shooter set on Mars, after all, so that makes some sense.
At the time of writing, there’s no official confirmation from either Limbic Entertainment, the developer, or 505 Games, the original publisher for the PC version of the game. It’s likely, though, that we’ll get an announcement in the near future.
Memories of Mars has been compared to RUST (also coming soon to PS4) for its open-world survival gameplay which tasks players with building a habitat on the red planet while fending off enemies, both A.I and other real-life players.
The original release on Steam has gotten middling reviews from users with the current reception being ‘mixed’, with the game receiving a lot of criticism for a variety of bugs. Here’s hoping the console release will be tidied up a touch because the concept is good and the setting is interesting, but a broken game is still a broken game.
Limbic Entertainment’s most recent release was my person Game of the Year 2019, Tropico 6.
100 years in the future, something happened on Mars. Once frequently visited, it is now abandoned with some left behind.
MEMORIES OF MARS is a open world survival game set on the abandoned mining operations in the red planet, as the dream of exploiting and colonizing Mars has proven impossible. You play as a recently awoken clone who learns its lifespan is limited by the lethal solar flares that hit the surface of the planet every few weeks.
Tasked with surviving the barren wastelands of Mars, players must explore the unforgiving Martian terrain and build a habitable homestead while fighting off against a variety of dangers including strange enemies, harsh environmental elements and other human clone survivors.
Explore and Survive the Red Planet.
