Paradox’s Mars colonization strategy game, Surviving Mars, will get its next expansion on September 7, the publisher has announced. In the follow-up to 2019’s Green Planet expansion, which saw terraforming brought to the game, Below & Beyond will allow players to explore and build below the Red Planet’s surface.

The expansion is set to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One for $19.99. Product Manager for Surviving Mars at Paradox Interactive Magnus Lysell said:

When we started planning out what was next for Surviving Mars, we really wanted to dive deep into the parts of the Red Planet we had not already explored. We know we had to come out swinging and Surviving Mars: Below & Beyond expands gameplay in a meaningful way. The possibilities are endless and we’re eager to continue exploring the Red Planet with our players.

As you might expect, there will be new mechanics, vehicles, buildings, and technologies introduced in Below & Beyond, including structures specific to mining resources under the harsh wastes and on “passing asteroids.” The expanded base-building elements will also allow for underground colonies.

The Mars Lifestyle Radio Pack will release alongside Below & Beyond and includes 16 original tracks spanning 70 minutes of music. That pack will cost $3.99 on PC and Xbox One and $4.99 on PlayStation.
