Surviving Mars was a relatively new experience for Haemimont Games, as it branched out into space colonization, colony management, and narrative mysteries. Even if it was rough around the edges, the developer continued to support it, adding free content and other quality of life improvements. Check out the newest trailer below and discover why the game is “better than ever”.
Some of the updates and free content include new buildings, new game rules, new Dome shapes, Creative Mode, Follow mode, tutorials, and so much more. Three new mysteries – The Philosopher’s Stone, St. Elmo’s Fire, and Metatron – were added for free. The “Beyond | Sagan” update also brought 24 new challenges, variety in maps, and challenge ratings.
If that weren’t enough, the next update, “Beyond | Gagarin”, promises new Sponsors overview and goals, random events, planetary view with Anomalies, Vistas and research sites, and much more. Surviving Mars will also receive its first paid DLC, Space Race sometime in the future. That adds new countries like Japan and Brazil, new sponsors, sponsor challenges, and competition against rival colonies.
