Mars Horizon - Reveal Trailer




About

In Mars Horizon the player is tasked with leading a major space agency from the dawn of the space age though to humanity's journey to Mars.

Players run a government space agency from when the first rockets launched into the atmosphere, right through to the first crewed mission to Mars.

Research new tech, expand your agency base, build rockets, send satellites into orbit, and launch a variety of missions. As the player, you’re in charge of every element of the journey into space.


Features

•   YOUR RACE INTO SPACE: All your decision-making and strategic prowess counts. Will you be patient in crafting the most high-tech base or strive to get the first human on Mars?
•   SCIENTIFIC ACCURACY: Auroch Digital has been developing Mars Horizon in affiliation with the UK Space Agency to ensure absolute detail in space travel, engineering, and the preparation needed for a successful mission into space.
•   CREW MANAGEMENT: Management is a key aspect of Mars Horizon and you’ll need to hire the right crew to successfully build, launch, and land on Mars.
•   DIPLOMATIC ALLIANCES: Enter into diplomatic partnerships with other agencies by sharing the rewards or going it alone.
•   BUILD & DESIGN: Construct your dream rocket from multiple vehicle parts and store its design for later missions.
•   COMPONENT EXPERIENCE: Level up your vehicle parts after repeated mission use by increasing its reliability, and upgrade slots.
•   UNIQUE CONTRACTORS: Agencies have a number of contractors they can call on for construction of vehicles, each with their own selection of unique benefits...

We’ve got some very exciting news on Mars Horizon - we’ve signed to a publisher! The excellent people of The Irregular Corporation are now our publisher for Mars Horizon and we’re over the moons (of Phobos and Deimos) about it. Read more about it in their official announcement.

For those of you who are new here, Mars Horizon is a strategy simulation game about leading a major space agency as you guide humanity to Mars. We’ve created our game with the input and support of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the UK Space Agency bringing an unprecedented level of authenticity, realism and legitimacy to the gameplay and scenarios.

We’ve got a brand new announcement trailer to celebrate - check it out.

We’re really excited about working with The Irregular Corporation and sharing our game with their community, as well as our own. We’ve got loads of great stuff coming up so stay tuned. Check out The Irregular Corporation on Twitter or jump into their Discord to say hi.

Mars Horizon's beta has taken off! 🚀
Mon, April 27, 2020


Redeem your Steam key now


You can now play the Mars Horizon beta! Check your inbox for a key




If you signed up for a Mars Horizon beta key you should now be able to find it in your inbox. If it's not there make sure to check your Spam folder, just in case.

Haven't signed up for the beta? Don't miss out! You can sign up here until 1st May at 4pm GMT to receive a beta key. We will be sending these out in waves so keep checking back if you haven’t received yours yet.

Quick info

The beta will be running until 4th May 2020 at 9am GMT. Redeem your key before then and get as much play time in as possible. The beta will not be playable after then.

The Mars Horizon beta is only available on Windows through Steam. It's just a sample of the full game as Mars Horizon is still in active development. With your feedback we hope to make it even better.

The beta allows you to experience the journey as far as the Moon. The full game takes you to Mars and beyond.

Need help?

If you're struggling to redeem your beta key or with installing the game on your PC, check out our FAQ. It should answer the most common questions and issues.

If the FAQ doesn't solve your problem, you'll find an email address in there that you can use to ask us any specific questions. You can also drop into our Discord to ask us and the community questions about Mars Horizon. The full game will have a tutorial created based on feedback from the beta. For now we’ve written a quick start guide which should introduce you to the game well enough.

I found a bug!

If you came across a bug while playing the Mars Horizon beta please report it in this bug thread on the Mars Horizon Steam page. We will be monitoring this thread throughout the beta. This should be enough information for us for many of the bugs but if we need more information we will reach out to you and request further information if you are happy to share this with us.

Finished?

If you enjoyed the beta we'd really appreciate it if you wishlist Mars Horizon on Steam. It helps us out a lot and means you'll get notifications about the game in the future, such as when it's released and goes on sale.

We'll also be emailing you a feedback survey on 4th May. Please take a few minutes to fill it out! The survey is where you can give us your impressions of the beta and tell us what you liked and didn't like as much. You can also tell us about any bugs you came across in the survey, too.
