From Press Release:
CALABASAS, Calif. – May 18, 2018 – 505 Games and Limbic Entertainment have revealed more about the hostile world of the Red Planet in advance of an exclusive closed beta weekend for Memories of Mars, a new open-world online survival sandbox game from the hit developers behind Ubisoft’s Might & Magic® franchise and Kalypso’s Tropico 6. In the unique Seasons system revealed today, which sets Memories of Mars apart from other survival games, 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 on an ongoing basis. 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.
Memories of Mars will 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 points of interest never-before-seen, added blueprints for creating different weapons and modules, novel enemies, updated events and more.
Beginning today and running through Sunday, May 20, 2018 select players and press will have an opportunity to be among the first to fight to survive and explore the mysterious dangers of the Red Planet in Memories of Mars ahead of its upcoming Early Access launch on Steam, planned for Spring 2018.
A limited number of closed beta access codes are now available to press for hands-on impressions consideration and reader giveaways.
