Paradox Interactive has announced that it's working on a new management strategy game called Surviving Mars, which will be developed by Haemimont Games, who are known for working on some of the Tropico games and Victor Vran.
Surviving Mars doesn't have a release date yet, but you can keep an eye on ourpage to see when it does!
Surviving Mars challenges players to build a fully functional colony on Mars, mixing survival needs with sanity and quality of life, while dealing with the hostile environment around you.
“We feel that strategy and management games are at their best when they let the player experience the unique story being told by their decisions, and Surviving Mars is going to have that in a big way,” said Gabriel Dobrev, CEO of Haemimont Games. “Your colonists aren’t just working to improve production, they’re struggling to survive, and their conflicts and concerns are intense. Surviving Mars lets you understand what your colonists are dealing with on an individual level, and coming up with creative plans for those needs will be a new challenge for our fans.”
Players will take the colonization effort of Mars from the very start, with the first rovers and supply drops, expanding further to establish a thriving society until eventually a new generation is born that has never set foot on Earth.
“We’ve wanted to work with Haemimont Games for years, and it looks like the stars have finally aligned,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “Expanding our management-strategy catalog has been something we’ve wanted to do for some time, after the successful launch of Cities: Skylines and building the player community around that genre. Finding a developer who shares our core design tenets is always gratifying, but with Haemimont and Surviving Mars we’re going to be giving our players a new experience that’s uniquely their own, and I’m looking forward to hearing the tales of triumph and catastrophe from our community.”
Surviving Mars is in development for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with the release date to be announced at a later date.
