If you’re looking for something new and different to play this weekend, the Epic Games Store has you covered. Starting today, Surviving Mars is free on EGS, a game that sits at a respectable 76% at Metacritic.
The city building game is, as the name implies, set firmly in the realms of sci-fi. Players will be charged with colonizing Mars, though its harsh environment will make that a tough row to hoe. Factional space agencies will provide resources and financial support that will help in the building process. Players will construct domes, build infrastructure, and research ways to make improvements.
It’s a great way to fill the time until the game’s sequel, Surviving the Aftermath, comes out next year.
Check out Surviving Mars on the Epic Games Store.
About Surviving Mars
Colonize Mars and discover her secrets, with minimal casualties.
Welcome Home! The time has come to stake your claim on the Red Planet and build the first functioning human colonies on Mars! All you need are supplies, oxygen, decades of training, experience with sandstorms, and a can-do attitude to discover the purpose of those weird black cubes that appeared out of nowhere. With a bit of sprucing up, this place is going to be awesome!
Surviving Mars is a sci-fi city builder all about colonizing Mars and surviving the process. Choose a space agency for resources and financial support before determining a location for your colony. Build domes and infrastructure, research new possibilities and utilize drones to unlock more elaborate ways to shape and expand your settlement. Cultivate your own food, mine minerals or just relax by the bar after a hard day’s work. Most important of all, though, is keeping your colonists alive. Not an easy task on a strange new planet.
