Surviving Mars Gets free Armstrong Update

Paradox Interactive and Haemimont Games today announced Surviving Mars: Green Planet and Project Laika are now available on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and PlayStation®4. Players can purchase Surviving Mars: Green Planet and Project Laika for $19.99 and $5.99 MSRP respectively, or the Green Planet Plus bundle that includes both for $23.90 MSRP. To celebrate Green Planet’s launch, all Surviving Mars owners can download the free Armstrong update, which adds landscaping tools, new special projects, additional buildings, a revamped Research UI, and more to the survival management game.

Surviving Mars: Green Planet is the second major expansion for Surviving Mars, giving players the power to turn the Red Planet green and open the domes with the introduction of Terraforming Parameters. These Terraforming Parameters add new layers of strategic depth to Surviving Mars and are affected by new terraforming buildings, completing special projects, and seeding vegetation across the planet’s surface in hopes of making Mars capable of supporting human life. Additionally, Mars has become pet friendly with the Project Laika animal pack that brings a variety of pets and livestock to the alien world — but keep an eye on those pets because some of your colonists’ companions may surprise you.

The free Armstrong update continues the mission to enhance the core Surviving Mars experience for everyone. Armstrong adds a host of gameplay features, including landscaping tools that allow players to change the topology of the planet’s surface to fit their needs.
