Now that the Mars rovers have determined the red planet to be relatively safe, it's time for humans to begin exploring in earnest. Bohemia Interactive has issued a new Expedition One update for their space exploration simulator, Take On Mars, which allows humans to wander the planet's surface and create settlements.

The Expedition One update will give humans access to a manned science buggy, which allows them to explore the massive Cydonia Mensae location. Using a 3D printer to construct various parts, humans can then create buildings and installation that are safe for habitation. The Martian terrain is a harsh environment and humans will need to monitor their oxygen levels and supplies, grow plants, and operate drilling rigs to find new resources.

Another Expedition One update is expected in May, which will add resource extraction and transfer, habitat pressurization, and vitals.

Take On Mars is available now from the Bohemia Interactive website or on Steam Early Access.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
