Memories of Mars is on the way to Steam’s Early Access launch on June 5th, and it’s coming with a 10% launch discount, normally available for 29.99. Memories of Mars will feature a unique “seasons” mechanic to enhance the survival nature of the Red Planet, which should also keep gameplay fresh. Death is inevitable on Mars for even the most skilled players, as catastrophic solar flares crop up periodically to wipe out the planet’s surface, eliminating all life and player-made infrastructures. Some talents and abilities learned through these seasons can be backed up through a series of clones, letting players download their previous memories of how to build and survive on the Red Planet.
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.
