In April, players got a chance at running the space race as part of the Mars Horizon beta. Whether you succeeded or not, the management aspects of the experience was a good test of abilities when it came to taking mankind’s next step into the great expanse of space. A new Mars Horizon trailer has now been released, showing exactly the details you need to get down before you can even come close to exploring space. We also got a launch date of November 17 on all platforms.
The game puts players in charge of their own major space agency. It will be up to you to lead your team from the dawn of the space age to landing on Mars. Construct your base, do your research, and start exploring space. There are also turn-based missions to contend with in order to advance your technology and whip up public support. If you are not satisfied with the five unique space agencies, each with their own traits, base, vehicle, and spacecraft types, you can even create your own.
The Mars Horizon trailer definitely sheds more light on the process, and it will not be an easy journey for sure. Getting to space on your own time is already challenging enough, but to do so in a competitive market? Success certainly rides on every one of your decisions. The fact that developers Auroch Digital took inspiration from actual events and missions adds a layer of authenticity to the proceedings as well.
If the Mars Horizon trailer has you excited to start your mission, the wait will not be that long. In fact, there is a demo available now that includes the first Era of the game. This will give you a taste of things to come. You will be able to launch your first satellite and have humans sent into orbit. Sounds like a swell time already.
