If you haven’t had enough of sci-fi thrillers with The Callisto Protocol and the Dead Space Remake, rest assured there are more jump scares and thrills on the way. Developer Fallen Leaf has recently partnered with Dear Villagers on the upcoming cinematic sci-fi adventure Fort Solis. Explore an abandoned mining facility on Mars, solve the mystery of the missing crew, and make crucial decisions when Fort Solis comes to PC this Summer (our Aussie Winter – perfect gaming weather).
Fort Solis has you playing as engineer Jack Leary when he spends the longest night of his life on an isolated mining base on Mars. Explore Fort Solis station at your own pace, gathering clues from its bunkers, labs, crew quarters, and harsh, stormy surface to understand what enigmatic horrors befell its inhabitants. As the night grows longer events escalate, spiral out of control, and the mystery as to what’s really going on deepens. You must race against time to locate the Fort Solis crew members and escape to tell the tale!
Utilising the power of Unreal Engine 5, Fort Solis offers an intricately immersive setting in the deepest reaches of space. Featuring a first class crew that includes Red Dead Redemption 2 lead Roger Clark, Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Death Stranding), and Julia Brown (The Last Kingdom, World on Fire), Fort Solis grounds you in its hard sci-fi drama with no camera cuts, load times, or HUD. Fort Solis’ cinematic ambitions can be seen in the movie poster-inspired key art for its main cast below.
Make tough decisions in real time as you piece together the sinister forces that have befallen Fort Solis. Your actions will have key consequences, leading to multiple endings. Do you have what it takes to solve the mystery of Fort Solis and report back alive?
“We’re all fans of hard sci-fi and horror, so with Fort Solis we wanted to create a tense, classic sci-fi tale that players are free to piece together at their own pace,” said James Tinsdale, Game Director at Fallen Leaf. “To us immersion was the key factor here, and we’re very proud of all the work our team and our collaborators have done in bringing Fort Solis to life. It’s such a fully realized, lived in place, and we’re thrilled for everyone to discover it when it launches later this year.”
“Dear Villagers seeks to bring people new and engaging experiences, and Fort Solis is exactly that,” said Guillaume Jamet, Head of Publishing for Dear Villagers. “We’re so happy to have partnered with Fallen Leaf, as Fort Solis offers such a unique mix of narrative-driven adventure, open-ended exploration, immersive sim interaction, and chilling, ominous atmosphere. We love its vision, and are confident you will too!”
