Bohemia heads to the Red Planet

exploration_dev_2013-05-17_08-05-31-54_4To quote the gentleman who sent us a link to this, “We didn’t see that one coming!”

Armed Assault (ArmA) and Take on Helicopters developers Bohemia Interactive have announced a new title in production during the E3 event in Los Angeles: Take on Mars.

According to this page at the Armaholic web site:

Take On Mars places you in the seat of a Rover Operator, allowing you to control the various, fully simulated mobile Rovers and stationary Landers. With this scientific arsenal at your disposal, you will work your way through the numerous Science Missions in each location, unlocking the secrets of Mars’ distant past.

“Explore the scarred face of another world. Journey through rocky terrain and sandy wastes, pushing your vehicles to the max in this new installment to the Take On series.”

More information, including further screenshots and video, can be found at the BIStudios official web site for the product. What can we say, other than it looks ‘out of this world’!

Yes, but … will there be automatic Mars weather updates? And what about Martian AI? 🙂

These guys are top indie simulation developers and I dream they will start a global flight simulator project sometimes in the near future… they certainly know what immersion means 🙂
