Paradox Interactive’s colony builder Surviving Mars, which officially resumed development earlier this year under the watchful eye of Abstraction Games, is getting a brand-new expansion, titled Below and Beyond, next Tuesday 7th September,
Surviving Mars – which challenges players to rejuvenate the wastes of the red planet, transforming it into a thriving colony of shimmering domes – was well-received when it launched in 2018. A selection of DLC followed, but Below and Beyond will be the game’s first major expansion since 2019’s Green Planet. A free tourism update released earlier this year.
Below & Beyond, as its name implies, takes the colony builder to new locales, going below Mars’ surface and beyond its horizon so that players may turn their attention to building underground bases, mining asteroids, and gathering rare resources.
