Paradox Interactive and Iceflake Studios announced today as part of the “Paradox Announcement Show” the extension rebirth for their survival colony builders Surviving the Aftermath announced (in the check). It is the third expansion after already New Alliances (in check) and last Shattered Hope (in the check) have appeared. Rebirth is supposed to be the conclusion of the current “season”. You can view the reveal teaser directly below this news. In the Video of the announcement show there is some more footage and an interview with let Liljedahlthe studio manager of Iceflake Studios.

Rebirth introduces terraforming, giving you the power to modify and revive the environment for your colonists. You must also protect the world from a fungal attack called Blight, which also affects humans and animals. There is also a new final victory option. Surviving the Aftermath – Rebirth will be available March 16, 2023 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC at a suggested retail price of €14.99.

Lasse Liljedahl, Studio Manager and Game Director of Surviving the Aftermath, had the following to say about the expansion:

Rebirth represents a turning point in humanity’s experience of survival. It’s an end to mere survival and the start of a new chapter. It’s time to rebuild civilization and heal the world. The Mechanism of the Blight represents the greatest challenge the colonists have ever faced, but it is also the key to turning the tide and repairing the damage the environment suffered after the apocalypse. The new features like terraforming give players more control over their surroundings, but also expand the core game in new meaningful directions.

The announced key features of Surviving the Aftermath – Rebirth are:

  • Blight: From threat to resource
    • After decades of exposure to radioactive pollution, a new contamination called Blight has emerged. A mutated fungus begins to affect animals, making them aggressive and dangerous. This infection has spread throughout the wasteland and is threatening to take over.
    • You must find a cure for the Blight to protect your colonists against it. To do this, you must collect Blight samples, examine them in a new research building, and thereby unlock new buildings, resources, and upgrades.
  • From wasteland to green pastures
    • You transform the barren land into fertile soil. With the terraformer you are able to welcome a new life: the more terraformed, the greener the area on the map becomes, with lush vegetation and animals. Terraforming areas affected by Fungal Infestation will result in Blight Monsters attacking Survivors.
  • New buildings and upgrades
    • Rebirth brings three new buildings, three building updates, and a new multi-stage Blight Laboratory with its own research tree.
    • A cleaning station allows you to remove small dirt deposits. It can be upgraded to an Extermination Post to clean corrupt nests, beehives and caves.
    • The basic terraformer turns the land into terraformed soil and can be upgraded to the ‘advanced terraformer’.
    • The Environment Station becomes the Hazardous Materials Station: this allows survivors to eliminate the plague origins and stop the creatures’ attacks.
    • While not a new building, the Sentinels have been significantly upgraded and are now more important than ever in the colony’s defenses.
