To get Surviving Mars for free, all you need to do is head on over to the game's Steam page and claim it before 8th September at 18:00 BST.

The only caveat is that, since it is a free offer, no Steam Trading Cards for the game will drop while you play it, definitely not something to worry about.

What is Surviving Mars?

Surviving Mars tasks the player to build functioning human colonies on Mars. The game is essentially a sci-fi city builder with sandbox elements where players will first choose their space agency for resources and financial support before determining a location for their colony.

You will build infrastructure and domes, do research, cultivate your own food, mine minerals and much more. The biggest task, however, is to keep your colonists alive with strategic decisions.
