Bohemia Interactive has posted their 'roadmap to release' for Take On Mars, the simulation game that lets us try to colonise Mars as the very first humans. It all started with just a Martian-bound rover.
Now it's time to start setting up mankind's very first presence on the Red Planet. The published roadmap sets June as the target date for the final release, with early beta due in early April.
Survival elements will be completed in implementation later next month, and the Manned Space Program scenario should be out just before the beta. The development team will be dedicating everything from mid-April to tweaks and optimisation of the simulator, with in-game tutorials in May.
"I'd like to clarify a few things about the plan, specifically about the move to Beta. While still within Early Access, the game at this point will move into a feature-lock state, where no additional features are added and rather existing features and gameplay mechanics are tweaked to perfection."
"There may be exceptions, but the idea is to make the game run as smoothly as possible giving everyone the best possible experience," explained the studio in their roadmap blog.
Take On Mars is available now through Steam Early Access.
