Today, Paradox Interactive and Haemimont Games revealed Surviving Mars: Green Planet, the second major expansion for the game. According to the companies, the Green Planet expansion will give you the power to transform the red planet with terraforming elements.

Luckily, there are also a lot of quality-of-life improvements coming with this patch. While we don't have an exact release date, Green Planet should launch in the next few months.

The Green Planet expansion includes a wide range of gameplay features that will change the way you approach life on the red planet. For example, players can seed vegetation across the surface to give Mars a breathable atmosphere and use landscaping tools to shape the land to fit their needs.

Haemimont Games head Gabriel Dobrev said, "Terraforming the surface of Mars is something that has captivated gamers and the human imagination for as long as we can remember. It's something that we took special care to develop and make sure we got right."
