The expansion, titled Hellas & Elysium, will feature a double-sided board, each representing two new areas of Mars. The first is Elysium, which will take players to the opposite side of Mars with lowlands and oceans in the north and a dry, mineral-rich south.
Elysium will also have a tile space for Olympus Mons, the highest mountain in the solar system. If you place your tile there, you will get three free cards.
The other side of the board will be Hellas, which takes players to the southern wild. This area includes Mars’ Hellas crater, which takes up 7 hexes.
The Hellas board will also feature the south pole, which if you place tiles there, it will give you bonuses of heat and water.
The two maps will also have new Milestones and Awards. On Hellas, if you place three tiles, you can become the Polar Explorer. If you’re playing on Elysium, you can race the other players to have the most tiles adjacent to water.
Terraforming Mars: Hellas & Elysium is due out in the summer. So far no price has been announced for the expansion.
