Surviving Mars Launches on March 15, Features Day One Mod Support

Mars attacks.

Surviving Mars, the new simulation strategy game from Paradox Interactive and Haerminont Games, will be launching on March 15 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Along with the release date, Paradox announced that mod support for the game will be available on day one.

Surviving Mars is in development from the same people that brought you the Tropico series of strategy games. But instead of building up your own banana republic, you'll be setting up a new colony on Mars. As a result of trying to build a city on the red planet, Surviving Mars will have its own unique set of challenges such as managing air supply and water. You know, resources not readily available in space.

Along with the city building aspect, there will also be an option mechanic called "Mysteries" where basically a random storyline triggers that you can explore. These mysteries are decidedly more science-fiction meant to lean into the setting in a fun and playful way. For example, in our demo, we saw alien black cubes of unknown origin begin popping up.
