In Offworld Trading Company players will be given the chance to travel to Mars and exploit its plethora of untapped resources, participating in a brand new type of market.

These are what will help you drive your competitors out of the market. There is no military in Offworld Trading Company that will allow you to take your opponents down by force. Instead you will need to use your wit and economically sound practices to get rid of your competition. Choices will also be presented in the form of types of goods to sell, what resources need to be acquired, and even how heavily you dare dip into the stock market.
Both singleplayer and multiplayer game modes will allow players to go head-to-head with either AI-controlled colonies or other players and compete in the same market.
