Surviving Mars: Green Planet Next Month

Paradox Interactive announces a May 16th launch date for Surviving Mars: Green Planet, the upcoming expansion that will bring terraforming and a dose of green to the red planet. This will allow you to live the dream of Mark Watney and grow potatoes on Mars while also living up to Douglas Quaid's noble goal of bringing air to the Martian colonists. Green Planet is not the only new content coming to the game that day, as it will come alongside the release of the Project Laika content pack, which will bring livestock and pets to Mars. The news comes with this trailer, which is part two of a feature breakdown for the expansion. Here are more details:

Humans arenít the only species trying to live on Mars! The Project Laika content pack adds a variety of pets and livestock that will benefit colonies and improve life on the Red Planet. Players can breed livestock to increase food production while pets explore their new home. Keep an eye on what colonists consider pets, though, some of their companions may be a surprise.

Surviving Mars: Green Planet features include:

  • Terraforming: Terraform Mars and make the hostile planet habitable for humanity. Each decision you make while managing your colony can affect the Terraforming Parameters, which includes Atmosphere, Temperature, Water, and Vegetation, and ideally brings them closer to habitable levels. Monitor your progress on a planetary scale with the Planetary Overview UI. Once youíve made the atmosphere breathable, open the domes and let your colonists breathe Martian air!
  • Green Mars: Seed the surface of Mars with various lichen, grass, shrubs, or trees and watch as they begin to turn the Red Planet green. Low maintenance plants like Lichen can improve the soil quality to help more complex plants grow while Trees produce high seed yields for your colony to harvest. Be sure to monitor your soil quality levels to keep your plants healthy and growing.
  • Special Projects: Take on seven challenging Special Projects like melting the polar caps, capturing ice asteroids, launching a space mirror, and more to begin shifting the Terraforming Parameters. Be careful, these projects will have a lasting impact on the planet and will trigger natural disasters!
  • 7 New Terraforming Buildings: Construct seven new buildings that can help you terraform the planet or capitalize on the changes. Use the GHG factory to release greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, the Forestation Plant to boost vegetation production, the Water Pump to fill a man-made lake bed, and more.
  • Climate Calamities: Terraforming a planet can have unexpected consequences. If you release too many greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere you can trigger acid rain which reduces soil quality, or if an asteroid slams into the planet it will cause a Marsquake that can disrupt your colonyís production.

Project Laika content pack includes:

  • Animal Farm: Breed up to eight different farm animals in the Martian Pastures including Cows, Chickens, Pigs, and more. Farm animals can be raised for food in the new In-Dome Ranches or Outside Ranches, depending on their size, and consume more water than crops.
  • Martianís Best Friend: Animal Pack features 25 different pets, ranging from your usual suspects like cats, dogs, and rabbits to some unexpected critters like llamas, penguins, platypuses. Once you terraform the planet enough, pets will go outside to explore nearby bushes and trees.
