Frontier Foundry, the games label of Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV), revealed today that cinematic sci-fi adventure game Deliver Us Mars will launch on September 27 for PlayStation® 5, PlayStation® 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.

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. 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. 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.
Players will progress in Deliver Us Mars by conquering platforming challenges, solving complex puzzles, scuba diving, floating in zero gravity and even executing a thrilling launch sequence inside a spaceship. They’ll experience a stunning depiction of Mars as they explore its sandy planetary surface, the interiors of the enormous ARK vessels, icy valleys and abandoned colonies – not to mention sections of the game set on Earth and the Moon. With an action-packed story that mixes epic stakes, personal drama and an unsettling larger mystery, players will uncover the truth behind the disappearance of Outward’s colonists and learn the fate of Kathy’s father.
PC, PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S players can look forward to an enhanced experience featuring real time ray traced shadows and reflections, with more console-specific functionality to be unveiled before launch.
Deliver Us Mars will feature as part of the PC Gaming Show livestream on Sunday June 12, where the actress who plays Kathy Johanson will be introduced for the first time. Keep up to date on the game with the links below:
