Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Iceflake Studios today announced Surviving the Aftermath: Rebirth as the third expansion for their post-apocalyptic city builder.
Scheduled for launch next week, Surviving the Aftermath: Rebirth introduces the new feature of terraforming, empowering colonists to reclaim and revitalize their devastated surroundings. However, along with this comes a formidable new danger in the form of the Blight.
Surviving the Aftermath: Rebirth
The Blight is described as a fungal infestation brought about by radioactive contamination. Infected animals become aggressive, threatening your efforts to expand and terraform the land.
While you're not reshaping the environment, you can also search for a cure for the Blight by gathering samples, studying them, and using your discoveries to unlock new buildings, resources, and upgrades.
Surviving the Aftermath: Rebirth also brings with it three new buildings, three building upgrades, and a multi-stage Blight lab that comes with its own dedicated research tree.
The Purification post allows you to remove small pollution deposits. Its upgraded version, the Extermination post, is great when you need to clear blighted nests, hives, and lairs.
The Basic Terraformer does what its name suggests, turning the land into terraformed soil. It, too, can be upgraded to the more potent Advanced Terraformer.
The Environmental station and Hazmat station buildings give survivors the ability to clear blight cores and stop attacks by infected creatures.
Lastly, you'll also notice that Guard Posts have received significant improvements and have become more important than ever when it comes to protecting your colony.
Surviving the Aftermath: Rebirth is set to release on March 16, 2023, when it arrives on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, for the price of $14.99/£12.79/€14.99 or your regional equivalent.
