Developers Teotl Studios and Grip Digital have announced that first-person exploration/survival title The Solus Project will be released on PlayStation VR on 18th September, 2017.
Previously available on Steam for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, The Solus Project puts the player in the role of a scout, sent to search a distant planet to look for a suitable site for a human colony, a desperate mission, since Earth has been destroyed and humankind is reduced to a tiny rag tag fleet of ships. Disaster strikes on the destruction of your scout ship, forcing the player to scavenge, explore and fight in order to survive and discover the secrets of the planet.
The developers have hidden over 200 secrets inside the videogame. Players can wander and explore vast cave systems to discover the mysteries within. There are ten carefully constructed levels to explore, containing islands, tombs, caves and more. A day and night cycle and dynamic weather system are intended to offer a specific atmosphere and feeling of a living ecosystem.
The developers are promising over 15 hours of gameplay, though there are no enemies, no combat or anything to shoot, there is a mystery to be investigated and a vast environment to explore, puzzles to solve and items to craft to attempt to escape this lonely, foreboding planet.
It has not yet been confirmed what price point The Solus Project will have on the PlayStation Store, though the Steam version is currently being offered at £14.99 (GBP) so the price is expected to be roughly equivalent. A trailer for the PlayStation VR version is available to view below.
