Fort Solis, an upcoming space horror game featuring the talents of Roger Clark from Red Dead Redemption 2 and Troy Baker from The Last of Us, is set to release on PlayStation 5 and PC on August 22nd.
In Fort Solis, players assume the role of Jack Leary, an engineer who embarks on a maintenance request to an isolated mining base on Mars.
As the game’s description on Steam reveals, Jack finds himself caught in a night of escalating events and unfolding mysteries as a storm looms outside, trapping him in the base until morning.
Episodic Narrative Experience
Fort Solis offers a unique narrative structure, divided into four chapters, akin to binge-watching a Netflix series or following an episodic TV show. Players can immerse themselves in the intense storyline in one session or savor each chapter at their own pace.
Drawing inspiration from psychological sci-fi films such as Moon, Sunshine, and Solaris, game director James Tinsdale aims to create an atmosphere of isolation, uncertainty, and danger. Fort Solis seeks to transport players into a world where they feel alone and unsure of what lies ahead.
Fort Solis promises an immersive experience with no camera cuts, load times, or HUD elements, allowing players to remain fully engrossed in the tense atmosphere without interruption.
While the initial release of Fort Solis is confirmed for PC and PS5, Tinsdale hinted at the possibility of an Xbox Series X/S release in the future, with plans to expand to Microsoft’s consoles. However, a Nintendo Switch version is unlikely due to technical limitations.
Prepare for a thrilling journey into the depths of space with Fort Solis, where the talents of Roger Clark and Troy Baker bring the characters and the story to life. Explore the mysteries of the mining base, confront your fears, and unravel the truth behind the enigmatic events that unfold on Mars.
