Paradox Interactive and Iceflake Studios today release Shattered Hope, the second expansion to their survival colony builder, Surviving the Aftermath.
This expansion introduces the cataclysm of the shattered moon, giving players the ability to increase resource production and the task of sustaining the survivors' hope. Surviving the Aftermath: Shattered Hope is available today for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC at a suggested retail price of $9,99.
"Fear" and "Hope"
In Shattered Hope, the moon has been destroyed and parts of it fall to the surface of the earth. However, this cataclysm also offers a silver lining in the form of moon rock deposits that can be collected and used to increase resource production. Survivors must band together to find "Hope" and persevere, or "Fear" will plague them. Resources and the persistence of the survivors must be balanced in this human nature-centric expansion of Surviving the Aftermath's colony management gameplay.
The moon is shattered in the sky and its fragments fall to earth. They leave devastation in their wake - but also moon rock deposits. Players can refine Moon Fragments and obtain Moon Dust, which can be used to increase the buildings' production for a limited time. This new building boost mechanic is called "Overtime".
"Hope" is a new global stat that decreases in-game over time and during disasters. If left too low for too long, it will trigger a new condition called "Fear" which, if left untreated, can make colonists hostile. So hope must be kept as high as possible by holding festivals in the new Colony Square building.
When colonists experience the Fear state, players can build a trauma center to heal them. Thanks to a brand new drug called "Antistress" they will recover faster. In order to produce it, raw materials must be cultivated on the mushroom farm and then refined into the actual medicine in the medicine shack.
