Invade Space on PC and Mobile with Updated Graphics and Beyond
PARIS — April 4, 2018 — Asmodee Digital, the industry leader in digital board game entertainment, announced today they are bringing Fryxgames’ award-winning strategy board game, Terraforming Mars, to Steam (PC), Google Play, and the Apple App Store. Developed by LUCKYHAMMERS, the digital edition of Terraforming Mars will launch into Early Access in May and full launch happening later in Q2 of this year.
Faithfully developed alongside the game’s original creator, Jacob Fryxelius, the digital edition of Terraforming Mars is a true adaptation of the cult classic board game. Each player competes as a powerful corporation tasked with terraforming the Red Planet. Players create oceans, plant forests, import resources from Earth, and more in an effort to make Mars habitable for human life. Mars may be an unforgiving planet, but the real enemies are the competing organizations who will stop at nothing to claim Mars for themselves by sabotaging resources, crashing asteroids into fields, and wreaking havoc on mission-critical systems.
Players can compete across several game modes including two unique single-player modes where the player can play solo (just like the board game) or against AI controlled opponents, pass-and-play local multiplayer, and +online multiplayer in intense turn-based strategic gameplay.
“Terraforming Mars captured our imagination the moment we laid our eyes on it. Not only is it the most demanded and highest rated board game since its launch in 2016, it’s a far out trip to Mars!” says Philippe Dao, Chief Marketing Officer of Asmodee Digital. “We’re thrilled to work alongside Fryxgames in bringing their masterpiece to life for digital audiences.”
The physical edition of Terraforming Mars launched in 2016 and became an instant cult classic among board game enthusiasts. The game was named one of the best 50 games of 2016 by Popular Mechanics, ars technica listed the game as one of its 20 best games of 2016, and Vulture called it “the best high strategy game of 2016.”
