Surviving Mars Below & Beyond: Content Update 2 Bug Fixes and Gameplay Improvements

Surviving Mars
Surviving Mars Steam

Surviving Mars recently received the Below & Beyond: Content Update 2. The developers implemented some gameplay improvements and bug fixes in this update.

This update made a small change to the Landing system. From now on, rovers and drones loaded into the Lander Rockets will drop resources that are still being carried. You can now see Asteroid Landers take off when they automatically launch at the last second when an asteroid becomes out of range.

The developers also fixed an issue where the Lander Rocket occasionally gets a “waiting for maintenance” status after a request, while it was still able to return to Mars if the asteroid goes out of range.

Gameplay Improvements

  • Waste Rock can now be transported.
  • Truly Universal Depot: The Universal Depot now includes the DLC resources, depending on which DLCs you have; Seeds if you have Green Planet and Exotic Minerals if you have Below & Beyond.
