Surviving Mars gets Tourism Update, In-Dome Buildings DLC

During Paradox Insider, Paradox Interactive announced that sci-fi city-builder Surviving Mars is back in development at Abstraction Games.

The game’s return begins today with the release of the free Tourism Update and In-Dome Buildings Content Creator Pack premium DLC.

The update makes it so tourists will now rate their stay in the colony, with players receiving rewards, funds, and additional tourist applicants based on the rating. Players can also build hotels and a Low-G Amusement Park to boost tourist satisfaction, and set up a Rover Safari to let tourists go on a sightseeing trip.

While the In-Dome Buildings Content Creator Pack DLC is available for $4.99 and includes the following buildings:

Habitats for Humanity

  • Smart Apartments (Habitats, Large)
  • Seniors Residence (Habitats, Medium)
  • Large Nursery (Habitats, Large)

Dome Sweet Dome

  • Medical Post (Dome Services, Small)
  • Security Post (Dome Services, Small)
  • Hospital (Dome Services, Large)
  • TV Studio Workshop (Dome Services, Large)
  • School Spire (Dome Spires, Spire)

“Since the launch of Surviving Mars: Green Planet, our players have been asking what’s next for Surviving Mars. The Tourism Update is just the beginning. The game is in good hands with Abstraction, they’re a team of veteran developers with years of experience making AAA titles and are passionate about Surviving Mars,” Magnus Lysell, Product Manager for Surviving Mars at Paradox Interactive, said. “We’re humbled by the overwhelming support for Surviving Mars. 5 million players is huge and we can’t wait to share what’s next with all of you soon!”

Finally, a new fully-featured expansion is in the works for Surviving Mars. The expansion is scheduled to launch later this year.
