A limited edition physical version of the third-person sci-fi thriller Fort Solis has been announced. This physical edition for PlayStation 5 will be released on the 6th of October. Forst Solis is set on an isolated mining facility on Mars. Players must solve the mystery of the missing crew and discover the secrets that lie deep within the compound.
Meridiem Games is responsible for the design and manufacture of the PlayStation 5 physical edition. Which will be on sale in specialist stores throughout Europe this October. The limited edition physical version will contain a special 3D cover and an exclusive metallic effect postcard. The boxed edition is available to pre-order now.
The story begins with engineer Jack Leary responding to a distress signal from the neighbouring Mars mining facility Fort Solis. It is located deep within the desolate desert of the red planet. Faced with imminent sandstorm warnings, Jack ventures inside to establish contact with the crew. He, unfortunately, finds himself alone and the base seemingly abandoned. As the night grows longer, events escalate, and spiral out of control. Worst of all, the mystery of what happened to the crew begins to reveal itself. The storms arrive, limiting Jack’s escape as he looks to hold out until morning arrives.
Fort Solis aims to offer a high-fidelity experience designed to fully immerse the player in the cast and its long night. With performances by Roger Clark, Troy Baker, and Julia Brown, Fort Solis seeks to convey emotion, fear, empathy, and much more in each chapter.
As a support to the main narrative, additional instances of the story are included, such as audio logs, surveillance images, or events from the past and present. Accompanying them are video recordings made by the entire team, detailing events before and perhaps even after that night when the alarm went off at Fort Solis…
Exploring Fort Solis
The skeleton of Fort Solis is built above and below ground. The base contains a variety of locations, each with its own surface and underground levels. Players can explore the isolated surface enduring storms, the eerie service tunnels devoid of light, or the multiple departments that help the daily functioning of Fort Solis, such as Engineering, Medicine, and Communications.
As the story develops, places can be easily revisited to obtain additional context or to continue serving as a backdrop to the fate that awaits Jack with each passing hour.
