LONDON (October 19, 2020) – Publisher The Irregular Corporation and developer Auroch Digital announced today that Mars Horizon, created with the support of the European Space Agency, will be coming into orbit on November 17 for release on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
In addition to the release date, The Irregular Corporation also revealed a features trailer that gives players a chance to preview just some of elements that they’ll be managing when they take control of their space agency:
The Irregular Corporation is also pleased to announce that European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake will be streaming the game live with Xbox from 7 am PT – 9 am PT on Oct. 20. The stream can be watched here: www.twitch.tv/xbox.
In Mars Horizon, players take control of their very own space agency at the dawn of the space age, as they begin to build their facilities up with the end goal of touching down on the surface of Mars. Players will have to manage the resources of time, science, public support and, of course, funds, as they work to complete missions and send their astronauts into space. Players will also contend with other major space agencies who have the same goal, choosing to work together or venture out on their own.
During missions, players will be faced with tense turn-based gameplay that will determine their success or failure. Every single decision is critical, do you spend power to fix a malfunctioning antenna or save it in case of an oxygen leak? Perhaps risking that extra three months of mission planning could have avoided this issue?
