In Terraforming Mars, players control rival corporations that each can contribute to the terraforming of Mars in unique ways. While the corporations are all attempting to gain the most advantage in the development of Mars, they are also still dependent on each other for the success of the project. The corporation that has accomplished the most once the planet has become habitable wins the game.

Stronghold Games plans to release Terraforming Mars in Q3, and hope to have copies available for Gen Con. Polish published has acquired limited printing rights in Europe. MSRP has not yet been announced.

This is the second partnership with a European company Stronghold Games has announced this week; their most recent announced partnership is with Eggertspiele (see “Stronghold, Eggertspiele Announce Partnership”).
