Paradox Interactive Expands its Surviving Franchise with Surviving the Aftermath
Post-apocalyptic survival colony builder launching late 2020, more info to be revealed at PDXCON
STOCKHOLM - Oct 7, 2019 - Paradox Interactive today revealed Surviving the Aftermath, the next game in the publisher’s Surviving brand, will launch in late 2020 on Epic Games store, Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation® 4. Players who want to get in on the ground level will be able to purchase and play the game later this year in Early Access on the Epic Games store and Xbox Game Preview. Additional details about Surviving the Aftermath will be revealed on Saturday, October 19 during PDXCON 2019 in Berlin.
The Early Access period for Surviving the Aftermath will last approximately one year, which will also be the period in which the game is exclusively distributed on the Epic Games store for PC. Paradox expects that Surviving the Aftermath will be among its top 10 games for revenue generated during the early access period, with the majority of that revenue now secured as a result of the arrangement with Epic Games.

Surviving Mars, the survival colony builder developed by Haemimont Games and the first game in the Surviving brand, has experienced record growth in 2019. Since the Green Planet expansion launched in May, Surviving Mars saw eight times the amount of monthly active players, surpassing its launch player peak by 19 percent.
“With the staggering growth of Surviving Mars this year we knew we had something special and we wanted to find new ways to utilize survival management gameplay,” Nikhat Ali, Lead Producer on Surviving the Aftermath and Surviving Mars at Paradox Interactive, said. “Surviving the Aftermath gives us the opportunity to experiment with these mechanics in new and interesting ways that we think our players will love.”
To introduce Paradox’s Surviving game lineup to more players, Surviving Mars and all of its DLC are heading to the Epic Games store on October 10. Kicking off as part of Epic’s Free Games Program, the Surviving Mars base game and Space Race DLC will be free to download from Thursday, October 10 - Thursday, October 17. After the free period, the game will be available to purchase for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $29.99.
To commemorate the game's growth and launch on Epic Games store, Surviving Mars is having a modding contest where modders can create new animals for the Project Laika expansion and win prizes.
