In support of Take On Marsâ€™ early access development, Bohemia Interactive today released the anticipated Deimos content update. Featuring two new locations and the Zero-G Probe vehicle, the content update also implements new features such as dynamic mission generation and a spectacular new weather system. As implied by the name of the content update, one of the new locations brings players to Deimos, one of Marsâ€™ two known moons. Here, Rover operators can explore three massive craters - each with a diameter of about one kilometer. The second new location inserts players into deep space, on an asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars. â€œThe new locations let you experience movement in a zero gravity environment, adding a new dimension to Take On Mars' already vast aspect of robotic vehicle simulation. This also gives you the opportunity to witness an amazing ballet of asteroids in the Asteroid Belt location. Fellow space enthusiasts will also be excited to learn that the Martian weather systems are also newly present in the game, affecting your vehicles in a realistic manner. All in all, while the real Mars Curiosity keeps making discoveries, Take On Mars keeps pushing forward, improving accordingly with the great feedback we have been receiving from fellow players.â€ -- Dram (Martin Melicharek, Project Lead) Besides the two new locations, the Deimos content update also adds the Zero-G Probe: a remote vehicle designed for zero-gravity environments, which makes it better suited for Deimos' gravitational pull of -0.0039m/s^2 than regular Rovers and Landers. Furthermore, the new â€˜Dynamic Mission Generationâ€™ feature dynamically creates photo, exploration and analysis tasks around the playerâ€™s location, whereas the new weather conditions now also include sandstorms and strong winds - providing great visual effects and additional gameplay depth. http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/Deimos1.jpg (420 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/AsteroidBelt1.jpg (310 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/AsteroidBelt2.jpg (261 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/Weather1.jpg (239 kB) http://dramthethief.com/uploaded/WeatherTransition.jpg (615 kB)
