'Memories of Mars' Kicks Off Closed Beta #2, Reveals Seasons System - Trailer

by Rainier on May 18, 2018 @ 8:42 a.m. PDT

Memories of Mars takes the player to the fourth rock from the sun where you must traverse the harsh landscape, fight off known and unknown carbon based life forms and build whatever you can, all in order to survive the desolate wasteland of the Red Planet.

100 years in the future, something happened on Mars. Once frequently visited, it is now abandoned with some left behind.

Memories of Mars is an open world survival game set on the abandoned mining operations in the red planet, as the dream of exploiting and colonizing Mars has proven impossible. You play as a recently awoken clone who learns its lifespan is limited by the lethal solar flares that hit the surface of the planet every few weeks.

Memories of Mars will thrust players into the barren wastelands of the Red Planet where they must explore the unforgiving landscape, build a habitable homestead and fight to survive against a variety of dangers including harsh environmental elements, strange enemy NPC’s and perhaps the most dangerous of all, other human survivors.

Explore and Survive the Red Planet.

505 Games and Limbic Entertainment have revealed more about the hostile world of the Red Planet in advance of an exclusive closed beta weekend for Memories of Mars.

In the unique Seasons system revealed today, which sets Memories of Mars apart from other survival games, death will be inevitable for even the most skilled players as periodic catastrophic solar flares wipe the planet’s surface of all life and player-made infrastructures on an ongoing basis. Some of the talents and abilities learned through the season can be backed up and carried over by a series of clones, allowing players the ability to download previous memories of how to build and craft to get a head start on surviving the next season.

Seasons will also serve to make the map feel new, with familiar places rearranged in new locations, exciting points of interest never-before-seen, added blueprints for creating different weapons and modules, novel enemies, updated events and more.

Beginning today and running through Sunday, May 20, 2018 select players will have an opportunity to be among the first to fight to survive and explore the mysterious dangers of the Red Planet in Memories of Mars ahead of its upcoming Early Access launch on Steam, planned for Spring 2018.

Here's how to get access to Closed Beta #2

  1. Users that signed up to the official Memories of Mars website should have received a beta code by now. If you signed up and did not receive a closed beta 2 code for Memories of Mars check your spam folder. We will also be sending out reminders to the people that have received codes but haven't opened up their emails yet.
  2. We'll be sending some more codes to any new subscribers that signed up this week to the Memories of Mars website. The second batch of codes is scheduled to go out in an hour or so.
  3. There is no NDA in regards to this beta. You can stream it, capture video and/or screenshots from your beta play-through, do as your heart pleases! We just ask you to consider that the game is far from finished at this point in time.

Key Features:

  • EXPLORE AND DISCOVER – Explore over 16 KM2 of the Martian landscape complete with deserts, craters, canyons, rocky planes, and mesas. Visit over 85 points of interest including abandoned towns, mines, industrial facilities, biodomes and vehicles.
  • SURVIVE – Look after basic needs including health, stamina, nutrition, body temperature and oxygen.
  • FIGHT –Encounter and fight against unique NPCs and competing players that are always looking to interrupt your adventures. These NPCs are strange enemies left over from previous, failed, colonization efforts. Now they’ve gone rogue, and you’ll need to fend them off.
  • BUILD – Building your own base will be a cornerstone of your gameplay experience. Build a small base on your own, or collaborate and build a much larger base. Either way, a base is required to for the ultimate project – surviving Mars!
  • EVENTS & FLOPS – Memories of Mars contains a unique system of in-game events where players will converge and try to survive these events and thereby collect Flops. There are multiple ways to collect Flops, but beware because other players can rob, kill and loot your Flops.

As a special token of thanks, players who sign up and opt-in via the official game website will receive an exclusive in-game pattern, and the blueprint for a CZ 457 rifle. The pattern will signify players as part of a core group of fans and it can be applied to equipment, armor, and weapons.  The CZ 457 blueprint will help players kickstart their journey and give them a step up from the standard issue pistol. Once obtained, players can produce as many rifles as their storage bins will hold. These are available for a limited time, now through the Early Access Launch. Visit the website and sign up today!
