Bohemia Interactive today released its brand new installment in the Take On simulation video game series, Take On Mars. Available exclusively on Steam (Early Access) and Store.bistudio.com for 12.99 USD/9.99 EUR/8.99 GBP, Take On Mars provides people with the opportunity to enlist as a Rover Operator and explore real locations on Mars.
As with any space exploration mission, the initial launch of Take On Mars is just the start of the journey. By making the game available as an Early Access title on Steam, Bohemia Interactive hopes to work together with players to create the most dynamic exploration sim game possible. Thus, besides the Space Program campaign and the individual scenarios, the game also comes with a 3D scenario editor, Steam Workshop integration (to be added later) and modding support. Regular updates to the game are to be expected, and players are welcome to report game issues or provide suggestions to the dedicated TKOM Feedback Tracker.
In Take On Mars, you take place in the seat of a Rover Operator, allowing you to control various fully simulated mobile Rovers and stationary landers. With this scientific arsenal at your disposal, you will work your way through the numerous Science Missions in each location, unlocking the secrets of Mars’ distant past.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
