Atmospheric Metroidvania Mars 2120 Set to Release August 1st

Taking the legacy of Metroidvania to Mars wasn’t necessarily on our bingo list for video games in 2024. Mars 2120 is less than a month out and ready to scratch off that option, however. Developed by QUByte Interactive and having incubated successfully in Early Access, it’s ready to come out of cryosleep and take up the moniker of “the Brazilian Metroid Dread”.

Mars is now in a period of post-colonisation, unknown threats are besieging the settlers. Take up your elemental abilities to roam across the surface of the dusty planet, explore its biomes and ultimately rescue the colony. Sounds pretty cool, and it looks equally cool, if the Gamescom LATAM trailer is anything to go by:

Into your Metroidvanias? It’ll be pretty tough to keep this one at arm’s length. If you want to read more about what to expect from the game, look no further.

In MARS 2120, humanity has successfully colonised various planets in our solar system, allowing people to escape an increasingly grim situation on Earth. After the UN receives a worrying distress call from Mars, it’s up to Sergeant Anna “Thirteen” Charlotte and an elite team of space marines to answer the call and rescue the first colony. To get to them, you’ll have to traverse a harsh landscape. fighting formidable and mysterious foes using a mix of ranged and melee attacks alongside useful elemental skills. How you dispatch your enemies is up to you, with the game offering players a non-linear approach to combat as well as exploration. Inspired by pioneers of the genre such as Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, MARS 2120 is an 8 hour, action packed metroidvania that offers a satisfying combat experience alongside cinematic flair. Will you survive?
