Surviving Mars Gets New DLC, Free Weekend

Haemimont Games and Paradox Interactive have just released the latest batch of DLC for their space colony management game, Surviving Mars.

The Space Race DLC puts players in direct competition with colonies backed by rival corporations on a mission to establish the first Martian superpower. You can check out the trailer above.

Each corporation has their own unique set of vehicles and buildings, and two new playable factions have been added in the form of Japan and Brazil.

This DLC coincides with a new update, which you can read about here, and a free weekend on Steam.

Here’s a rundown of the new DLC content:

Compete for milestones and anomalies with several other AI colonies backed by rival sponsors attempting 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.

Key Features:

  • NARRATIVE EVENTS – Experience narrative events throughout your colonization process that help reveal the realities of life in the dome and challenge your management skills.
  • UNIQUE VEHICLES AND BUILDINGS – 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 MISSION SPONSORS – 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!
  • UNIQUE GOALS & REWARDS – Each sponsor will task you with a unique set of goals to complete on your mission. Will the team back on earth lead you to prosperity, profit, or progress?

The Space Race DLC is part of the Surviving Mars Season Pass, or can be bought separately for $12.99. You can find Surviving Mars on Windows PC, Mac, Linux (all via Steam, the Humble Store, and GOG), PS4, and Xbox One for $29.99.
