Terraforming Mars adds new maps and more with Hellas and Elysium DLC

Asmodee Digital has officially launched a new DLC pack for Terraforming Mars, its space-themed strategy board game on mobile and on PC. In the new DLC Hellas and Elysium, players can expect to explore more of the Red Planet with two new maps, as well as revisions to the game's Awards and Milestones.

In Terraforming Mars' Hellas and Elysium DLC, players can expect two new placement bonuses - the Hellas Sea and the South Pole. The former can yield heat and the latter can provide an ocean tile for 6 Megacredits. Over on the other side is Elysium, which contains valuable placement bonuses as well.

In case you're not familiar with the title, Terraforming Mars is a digital adaptation of the popular board game created with the input of the original designer, Jacob Fryxelius. Players can engage in strategic turn-based gameplay as they vie for the top spot to see who can transform Mars and create a habitable planet. This can be done via managing the production of resources, building facilities, researching different kinds of tech and so on. The game features a solo mode and a multiplayer mode with up to 5 players.
