Paradox has announced Surviving Mars: Green Planet, a new expansion for the Surviving Mars video game that we talked about in LxA earlier and that also works with Linux. The new expansion will come this year in Q2, that is, in the second quarter of the year. For those who are not familiar with this vocabulary that is often used a lot in the industry, the second quarter or Q2 is the period from April, May and June.
In this expansion there will be a terraforming the surface of the planet Mars, and will allow players to do new things in this great title. The simulator was already good from the beginning, but with this new expansion it will be even better. Developers are working hard to launch this new expansion, as Haemimont Games CEO Gabriel Dobrev has confirmed.
The CEO himself has said that «Terraforming has been the most requested feature in our community since the launch of Surviving Mars last year, and we are delighted to finally share it with the Green Planet expansion.«. Therefore, it is a popular change among the followers of this title they expected. But that will not be the only change or novelty of the expansion.
Apart from the terraforming Mars, which will make the red planet a more hostile and not so habitable area for humanity that will make you have to be more skilled to maintain your colony in the face of new parameters of the atmosphere, temperature, water, vegetation, etc. On the other hand, there will be news regarding the vegetation that can be had, such as new herbs, trees, etc., to be able to turn the red planet into a green one thanks to new techniques of farming.
We will also have new challenges with projects that we will have to carry out, such as melting the poles, capturing the asteroid ice, launching space mirrors, etc., all to improve living conditions and make the colony alive. There will also be 7 new buildings that we can build, and the weather conditions will be dire not to make it easy for you.
