The Martian based installment in Bohemia Interactive’s uber hardcore Take On simulation video game series, Take On Mars, has just received a major update, which adds a plethora of major functionality to the game. Chief among these, of course, is support for the Steam Workshop, which was a long time coming (and which should lead to a plethora of mods, and other user generated content, for the game in the near future).
This update will be followed by another major update on October 3, a free update that will add Deimos as an explorable location in the game. This update includes two brand new locations for players to explore, and a vehicle designed for zero gravity environments, the Zero-G Probe. In addition, the update brings along several new features, such as ‘Dynamic Mission Generation’, which dynamically creates photo, exploration and analysis tasks around the player’s location. Another feature is the overhauled ‘Part Failure System’, which makes part failures much more reactive to the weather conditions and player’s actions, essentially making the realistic simulator even more realistic.
After the Deimos update hits, the price of the game will be also increased to 13.99 EUR/ 17.99 USD/ 11.99 GBP, so better get it now (on Steam Early Access) if you can.
