Today we've rolled out a major update for Take On Mars on Steam - featuring the new manned scout buggy, mobile laboratory, an improved 3D printer, and many general fixes and improvements!
Bohemia Interactive today announce their plan to launch the first ever manned mission to Mars. The project, which uses 'Expedition One' as its working title, is part of the studio’s effort to explore the red planet and – ultimately – establish a human colony on Mars.
The ‘Tech-Enhanced’ update implements a technology tree, global objectives, improved vehicle landing, two new crater locations, a ‘Probe’ vehicle, and the Soviet-era ‘Mars 3’ lander holding Mars’ first rover, the ‘Prop-M’.
As of today, you can collect Steam Trading Cards of Take On Mars - which can be crafted into badges, drop loot in the form of profile skins, or even offer rewards such as Steam discount vouchers.
Take On Mars just 'took off' in terms of visual quality when it comes to blending of terrain materials. Seen in the 'Before' and 'After' screenshots, we have implemented a new method of terrain material blending.
