Paradox Interactive and Haemimont Games have today announced that Surviving Mars’ first expansion Space Race will launch on November 15th, 2018 for PC, Xbox and PlayStation. With the introduction of rival colonies, players can look forward to a whole new side of extraterrestrial colonization with other settlements racing for milestones and key colonists as competitors, or issuing distress calls and trading as crucial allies. Either way, the cold expanse of space just got far less isolated with new rival colonies and new mission sponsors footing the bills.
Watch the new breakdown of content right here in the new trailer:
Here is a list of the new features:
A Challenger Appears: Compete for milestones 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 need to follow the money. Each sponsor comes with unique, new sets of goals to complete as you further their individual goals for colonization.
Represent the Home 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: Space Race Plus also features the Marsvision Song Contest and Colony Design Set content packs for the colonizer who appreciates the finer things in life on Mars:
Human Music, I Like It: Mars hasn’t killed the radio star (yet)! With Marsvision Song Contest players get a new radio station featuring all the top pop songs from the sponsor countries. Bop along to some J-pop, Bollywood and more as you fend off mortal peril for your colonists!
Smarten Up Your Streets: Deck out your dome with 25 new buildings to give a fresh look to your living, working, and playing quarters. Whether it’s a Stirling Generator or a Spacebar, make sure you spruce up your space to be out of this world.
