Terraforming Mars App: Hellas & Elysium Maps Now in Beta

(Edit: 5/13/22) – The review is live! Go check it out.

(Edit: 5/11/22) – And they’re out for real! No more beta. Available on all platforms. Watch this space for a review of the expansion in the next few days

Exciting news from Asmodee Digital with the Hellas & Elysium expansion maps now coming to the Terraforming Mars app.

This is Hellas, with the South Pole ocean

Fans of the game who have been playing it religiously have been clamouring for these maps for a while now because they’re getting tired of using the basic map.

And this is Elysium!

These two maps come with new Milestones and Awards as well, giving even more variety to the game.

Awards for the Hellas map

Maybe I’ll actually be able to earn some of these!

Celebrity, for example, really rewards you for getting those high-cost projects out there.

How do you get in on this juicy goodness?

Just log into your Asmodee Digital account and go to the Beta Tests page.

There’s a beta for iOS, Android and for Steam (though it looks like you have to actually purchase it if you’re on Android).

After the wonderfulness of the Terraforming Mars: Prelude expansion, it will be so cool to finally have these maps out.

I have a regular asynchronous game going with some friends and it will be good to change things up a bit.

It would be nice if they would get some of the bugs/annoyances out of the game as well, but this will go a long way towards making them more palatable.

At least for now.

Are you as excited as I am?

Let me know in the comments.
