from Expedition One
, a content update for Take On Mars
which brings players to Mars to perform a multitude of scientific experiments, construct habitats spanning from shelters to entire installations, and search for viable sources of oxygen, water, and raw materials. Due to the limited amount of supplies the space shuttle can carry, one of the most significant challenges for the marsonauts will simply be surviving the harsh Martian environment. As such, participants will have to actively manage their oxygen levels, food stocks, grow plants, and operate drilling rigs in the search for new resources. Unpressurized and pressurized manned vehicles will be at their disposal to increase their mobility across the vast alien terrain.
The first portion of the Expedition One update has been available in Take On Mars' latest update, and includes access to a manned science buggy, the huge new Cydonia Mensae location, plus a 3D printer which enables marsonauts to construct various parts for its Habitat Construction System. The second part of the Expedition One update is scheduled for release later this year.
