505 Games and Limbic Entertainment have announced that Memories of Mars has launched into Early Access on Steam. There’s currently a 10% launch discount off the full price of £23.99 until June 12th. In the game you awake as a clone trying to survive on the Red Planet.
Memories of Mars features a rich and vast environment to explore and introduces a unique “seasons” mechanic to enhance the competition of survival. In the unique seasons, death will be inevitable for even the most skilled players as periodic catastrophic solar flares wipe the planet’s surface of all life and player-made infrastructures. Some of the talents and abilities learned through the season can be backed up and carried over by a series of clones, allowing players the ability to download previous memories of how to build and craft to get a head start on surviving the next season.
Watch the Memories of Mars Early Access launch trailer below:
The game task players with surviving the harsh and unforgiving landscape of the Red Planet while building a habitable homestead and competing against other players and enemy NPCs for resources and opportunities. Players can team up to explore, gather resources and build defense bases or go rogue and explore numerous locations including abandoned terraforming towers, mining sites, caves, canyons, meteor impact sites and more. Seasons will also serve to make the map feel new, with familiar places rearranged in new locations, exciting new points of interest, added blueprints for creating different weapons and modules, novel enemies, updated events and more.
EF Games will be bringing you a review of the game later this month. Check out the Memories of Mars website for more information on the game.
