Surviving Mars – 15th March – Xbox One
Surviving Mars tasks players with taking charge of a colonisation effort on the surface of Mars, from the initial arrival of rovers, to the eventual construction of habitats to house the settlers from Earth. Every single colonist is crucial in succeeding in this city builder, as you attempt to get a foothold in a place where the environment around you is hostile and the resources are incredibly scarce.

Many challenges await you on the Red Planet, with some of them more mysterious than others, but the most important of all is that you need to keep the colonists alive.
