Surviving Mars is free on the Epic Games Store from 11th March 2021! Before you pick it up, here’s what I think about it.
Here are the games currently free of charge on the Epic Games Store. These are typically only around for a week, so if you see anything you like the look of you’d better move fast before they disappear!
Epic Games Store: Free Games – 11th March 2021
Surviving Mars is a great strategy game where you have to build and maintain a colony on the red planet. The replayability is incredibly high because there are so many options on the type of colony you want to build. I ran a short-lived Twitch series (you can watch it now on YouTube) but I really enjoyed it. The options I chose at the start probably made it a little easy though, so if I was going to go back I’d definitely want to bump that up a bit. But other than that it’s a lot of fun. There are some nice emergent story missions that pop up as you play, and I think these change depending on your starting options. So that’s pretty cool.
There’s also a ton of DLC for Surviving Mars, although I don’t have any of it. But if you’re looking to expand beyond the vanilla game, you could get a ton of extra content with the money you save by picking it up for free here.
