Shattered Hope expansion for Surviving the Aftermath announced for simultaneous launch on November 3rd

From Press Release:

STOCKHOLM — October 18 — Paradox Interactive and Iceflake Studios today announced Shattered Hope, the second expansion for their survival colony builder, Surviving the Aftermath. Shattered Hope introduces the Shattered Moon calamity, giving players the ability to boost resource production and the task of maintaining survivor’s hope. Surviving the Aftermath: Shattered Hope launches on November 3rd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC at a suggested retail price of 9.99 USD / 7.99 GBP / 9.99 EUR.

During the apocalypse, the Moon was destroyed and now the consequences of that are showering down from the sky in an unforeseen disaster. By gathering resources from Moon Rock deposits and coming together as a people, the survivors must find hope to proceed and prosper. Shattered Hope focuses on increasing resource production in the colony while attempting to keep up Hope for the colonists – otherwise, the new Anguish condition can cause trouble for them and the entire colony.

Shattered Hope measures the persistence of human nature during the most difficult of times. Human mind is a powerful thing and in this expansion endurance of the mind helps survivors to go on even after they are past their physical limits,” said Lasse Liljedahl, Game Director for Surviving the Aftermath. “New mechanics like hope, overtime, and new resource chains add more depth to colonist management. The alternative would lead to dire consequences that impact the whole colony.”

Surviving the Aftermath: Shattered Hope Key Features
  • Face the Moonfall and use it to your advantage with the new Building Boost mechanic
    The Moon is shattered in the sky and its fragments are crushing down on Earth leaving behind them devastation –  but also moon rock deposits. You can refine lunar fragments and obtain lunar dust which will be used to increase the production of your buildings for a limited time. This new building boost mechanic is called overtime.
  • Keep your hopes up, and feast!
    Hope is a new global value that decreases over time and when catastrophes happen in the game. If kept too low for too long, it will trigger a new condition called anguish that, if left untreated, may turn your colonists hostile. So, keep your hope as high as possible by holding feasts at the new colony square building.
  • New production chain: take care of your colonists
    When colonists experience anguish, you can help them by building a trauma center where they will heal. They will recover faster thanks to a brand new medicine called antistress. To make it, you’ll have to grow raw resources on the mushroom farm, then refine them into the actual medicine in the med hut building.
