Promising-looking strategy game Surviving Mars comes out in March

Martian orders.

Surviving Mars, the promising-looking survival-builder from Haemimont (Tropico, Victor Vran) comes out on 15th March for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, publisher Paradox has announced.

In the game you have to design and maintain a colony on Mars. You start with rovers and supply drops and have to build habitats for settlers from Earth. The environment is hostile and resources are scarce, but once you gain a foothold you can expand, with the ultimate goal of establishing a thriving society.

The PC version includes full modding tools and support, with mods available at launch from some of Paradox's most prominent community creators.
