Paradox Announces Follow Up To Surviving Mars, Modding Contest

Paradox Interactive revealed today the next game in their Surviving brand that will launch in late 2020 on the Epic Games store, Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4: Surviving the Aftermath. More details about Surviving the Aftermath will be revealed Saturday October 19 during PDXCON 2019 in Berlin. Later this year players wanting in on the ground level will be able to check out Surviving the Aftermath on Epic Games Store Early Access and Xbox Game Preview.

In related news, Surviving Mars has been doing quite well for itself since the Green Planet expansion launched in May. Since that time Surviving Mars saw eight times the amount of monthly active players, surpassing its launch player peak by 19 percent.

“With the staggering growth of Surviving Mars this year we knew we had something special and we wanted to find new ways to utilize survival management gameplay,” Nikhat Ali, Lead Producer on Surviving the Aftermath and Surviving Mars at Paradox Interactive, said. “Surviving the Aftermath gives us the opportunity to experiment with these mechanics in new and interesting ways that we think our players will love.”

To introduce Paradox’s Surviving game lineup to more players, Surviving Mars and all of its DLC are heading to the Epic Games store on October 10, where the Surviving Mars base game and Space Race DLC will be free to download from Thursday, October 10 – Thursday, October 17. After that date the game will be available to purchase for $29.99.

Surviving Mars is also having a modding contest where modders can create new animals for the Project Laika expansion for a chance to win prizes. For more details on how to participate in the modding contest, please visit this link.
