Mars is the fourth planet in the Solar System. After the Collapse, the now planet serves as a base to the alien species known as the Cabal, a group of hulking bipedal humanoids with thick grey skin.

History

The Traveler's appearance on Mars bought rain to the red planet,[1] and it was here that humanity first encountered the being.[2][3] Once, populating Mars had been but a dream for humanity, but with the arrival of the Traveler,[4] a thriving metropolis named Freehold came to dominate the skyline of the world, a bastion of human life in the red dunes. With the coming of the Darkness, nearly all of the city was "swept away" and the sand claimed what remained.[5] The city now lies buried beneath the dunes of Mars, with only the peaks of its once-soaring skyscrapers poking out of the dust as evidence that they ever existed.[6][7]

Mars is now a scorched desert world, occupied by Cabal forces who control the Exclusion Zone. The Vex also have a presence on the planet, and engage in frequent skirmishes with the Cabal, whom they are at odds with. An indelible sign of the Cabal presence on Mars is the moon of Phobos, which has had its orbit dramatically altered by Cabal planetary engineering; it now fills a significant part of the sky. Even more disturbing is the discovery of large "planet-cracking" munitions among the Cabal's already devastating arms.

Gameplay

Guardians can climb into the upper windows of Mars's skyline and venture into the depths below to discover what items and enemies may lie below the surface.
