Space travelling sequel Deliver Us Mars has been dated for a 27th September 2022 release on PS5, PS4, and you could get a 10 per cent discount on the launch price through PS Plus. Pre-ordering the game with an active membership will discount the £24.99/$29.99 asking price. Accompanying the release date confirmation is a new gameplay trailer, which you can catch above.
Explaining the story of the sequel in full as well as showcasing exploration, puzzle-solving, and parkour, it looks like a pretty good upgrade on Deliver Us the Moon. "Deliver Us Mars tells the story of Kathy Johanson, who joins the crew of the Zephyr space shuttle on a desperate mission to the Red Planet," a press release reads. "Their goal is to save a rapidly-declining Earth by retrieving vital colonisation vessels known as the ARKs, which the shadowy organisation 'Outward' stole years earlier."
It continues: "Kathy has another personal motivation for joining the mission to save humanity, however: her father, Isaac, joined Outward on its escape to Mars after being forced to leave his daughter behind when she was a child. Now, after a mysterious message from the Red Planet hints at a connection to her past, Kathy is determined to discover its source."
On PS5, Deliver Us Mars will support real-time ray-traced shadows and reflections, and the PS5 DualSense controller is likely to be utilised too. The game will be part of the PC Gaming Show this Sunday, where more will be revealed.
If you're still looking to catch up by playing the first game, Deliver Us the Moon is getting a free PS4 to PS5 upgrade in a few weeks, and it's also going to be included in the PS Plus Extra tier. Are you looking forward to this sequel? Gear up for space in the comments below.
