== The Europa Wager Expansion ==
 +
'''COMING SOON'''
 +
 
 +
What good is business if you're not willing to expand? The smallest of Jupiter's Galilean moons, Europa presents new challenges - and new opportunities! - for brave space entrepreneurs. Until now, there hasn't been any colony or business trade on the mostly frozen moon, but you're here to change that. Establish a colony, provide valuable life support, overcome the cracked landscape, and build your business in a place where no one thought it was possible.
 +
 
 +
*'''New Location - Europa '''<br/> Explore the smallest of Jupiter's Galilean moons where numerous cracks in the surface and methane geysers make building and sustaining structures more than a little difficult. The frozen moon has an abundance of water, but prepare to face other challenges.
 +
*'''New Resources'''<br/> Made of silicate rock and possessing a water-ice crust, Europa's atmosphere is thin but comprised mostly of oxygen. There is no aluminum on Europa, but you've found a way to use the abundant magnesium there to your advantage.
 +
*'''New Scenarios'''<br/> Fight through the frozen elements and help brave colonists found their colony and establish important resource lines. Make critical decisions on where and what to build, and mind the cracked and frozen landscape in order to make sure your structures don't come tumbling down.
 +
*'''New Structures'''<br/> Methane geysers are abundant on Europa, and the new Methane Extractor structure will allow you to harness the gas' energy and transform it into power. Hydrothermal Plants produce plenty of power, plus a small amount of water. Meanwhile, the Gas Plant converts fuel into power.

Offworld Trading Company released three DLC packs on it's official release day, along with the 1.0 build. They have stated that more DLC packs and expansions will continue to roll out.
 

The Europa Wager Expansion

COMING SOON

What good is business if you're not willing to expand? The smallest of Jupiter's Galilean moons, Europa presents new challenges - and new opportunities! - for brave space entrepreneurs. Until now, there hasn't been any colony or business trade on the mostly frozen moon, but you're here to change that. Establish a colony, provide valuable life support, overcome the cracked landscape, and build your business in a place where no one thought it was possible.

  • New Location - Europa
    Explore the smallest of Jupiter's Galilean moons where numerous cracks in the surface and methane geysers make building and sustaining structures more than a little difficult. The frozen moon has an abundance of water, but prepare to face other challenges.
  • New Resources
    Made of silicate rock and possessing a water-ice crust, Europa's atmosphere is thin but comprised mostly of oxygen. There is no aluminum on Europa, but you've found a way to use the abundant magnesium there to your advantage.
  • New Scenarios
    Fight through the frozen elements and help brave colonists found their colony and establish important resource lines. Make critical decisions on where and what to build, and mind the cracked and frozen landscape in order to make sure your structures don't come tumbling down.
  • New Structures
    Methane geysers are abundant on Europa, and the new Methane Extractor structure will allow you to harness the gas' energy and transform it into power. Hydrothermal Plants produce plenty of power, plus a small amount of water. Meanwhile, the Gas Plant converts fuel into power.

Jupiter's Forge Expansion

If you thought turning a profit on Mars was tough, just wait until you land on Jupiter’s volcanic moon, Io. With resources that deplete over time creating fierce competition, you will have to adapt to the new environment faster than your opponents do in order to survive. Life support is so strenuous on Io that Mars will look like a paradise in comparison!

  • New Location - IO
    Explore Jupiter’s volcanic and volatile moon where energy is plentiful, but life support is so difficult that it makes Mars look like a paradise.
  • New Resource System
    Change your production priorities in order to survive on Io where even the element most essential to basic human life - water - does not exist.
  • New Faction - The Penrose Collective
    Highly adaptable and influential, they are able to return claims and spread their operations across an already depleted environment in order to afford them easier access to more resources.
  • New Faction - The Diadem Trust
    An elite business group, their advanced structures can outperform the competition. Their ability to purchase patents that are already owned even leaves lawyers scratching their heads.
  • New Infinite Map Challenge
    Compete against the online community as each map evolves and becomes more difficult than the last. See how many maps you can conquer before the harsh environments of space get the better of you.
  • New Campaign
    Show that you have what it takes to survive on the harsh environment of Io. Snag resources before your adversaries do and prove that money talks: you made it on Mars, and you can make it on Io.
