Mission Sponsor

(Redirected from Sponsors)
Jump to: navigation, search

Sponsors are the nations or organizations that fund the initial Mars expedition, provide a base amount of research and pay for rare metals. Each sponsor has unique traits that provide various bonuses.

If the Space Race expansion is installed each sponsor has access to a unique building and vehicle. In addition all sponsors except the selected one can found a Rival Colony.

Summary of Sponsors[edit]

Brazil and Japan Sponsors require the Space Race DLC while Paradox Interactive requires linking the Steam and Paradox accounts within the game client.
