    Young astronaut Kathy Johanson is the protagonist of Deliver Us Mars. She joins a vital mission to the Red Planet to retrieve the ARKs, enormous colonization vessels that could give humanity a shot at reversing the terrible damage wrought upon planet Earth by pollution and climate change. Kathy’s motivations for joining the mission are twofold, however: years earlier, Kathy’s father, Isaac, abandoned her and left with the ARKs, making him a wanted criminal back on Earth. Now, a mysterious transmission has convinced her there’s a chance he’s still alive – and Kathy won’t stop until she discovers the truth.

    ‘Earth’s Last Hope’ introduces the cast of Deliver Us Mars, who brings the characters to life via fully motion-captured cinematics. Ellise Chappell (Young Wallander, Poldark) plays protagonist Kathy Johanson, also offering her likeness to the character. Neil Newbon (Resident Evil Village, Detroit: Become Human) plays Kathy’s absent father, Isaac.

    Working with Chappell, Newbon and the rest of the cast is part of KeokeN Interactive’s drive to build a more ambitious sequel to 2019’s Deliver Us The Moon. As co-founders Paul and Koen Deetman discuss in the developer diary, ‘go big or go home’ is the philosophy behind Deliver Us Mars – and upping the narrative presentation is a key part of a follow-up that also features an increased variety of gameplay mechanics and environments to explore.

    While Deliver Us Mars is about saving our world, it’s also a personal story about a father and his child. Kathy’s relationship with her father will be detailed in a series of flashback sequences throughout the game, showing players why Isaac’s difficult decision to leave Kathy behind was so painful for them both.

    Deliver Us Mars is available to pre-order now across all platforms for a suggested retail price of £24.99/$29.99/€29.99, while the PC-only Deluxe Edition featuring the base game and the original soundtrack is also available to pre-order for a suggested retail price of £29.99/$34.99/€34.99.
