Grip Digital has today released a new update for the PlayStation 4’s The Solus Project, specifically targeting PlayStation VR users playing on a PlayStation 4 Pro console. The latest patch, available to download now, updates the videogame to version 1.04.
In The Solus Project, humanity is on the verge of extinction. The player enters the shoes of a would-be hero tasked with finding a safe haven for a colony, but now you are stranded on a deserted alien planet and every other member of your crew is dead. A first-person survival-exploration adventure set on a mysterious and seemingly uninhabited alien planet, The Solus Project challenges the player to stay alive as you must explore and unlock the mysteries of Gliese-6143-C.
The new update for The Solus Project address two specific issues. Firstly, there’s a fix for regular crashes when playing in virtual reality (VR) mode on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Secondly, an occasional visual glitch related to translucency has also been fixed.
The Solus Project originally launched for PlayStation 4 last month, compatible with the PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD) from day one. VRFocus has regularly covered the videogame prior to release and including a review of The Solus Project, stating; “The Solus Project takes a sudden sharp left turn into horror. The creepy ambiance present since the beginning amps up, though there is no actual combat, and vanishingly few jump scares the realisation that the alien civilisation may not be as dead as we thought some slowly, the claustrophobic ruins closing in about you as you attempt to solve the puzzles and avoid getting caught by horrifying traps. VR really adds to this experience, as you find yourself holding your breath, utterly immersed in the environment.”
Available for digital purchase via the PlayStation Store now, Grip Digital’s The Solus Project is priced at £15.99 GBP, and is compatible with PlayStation Move controllers.
A Steam version of The Solus Project is also available, priced at £14.99, compatible with Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and the OSVR Hacker Dev Kit.
VRFocus will of course keep you update with all the latest details on this and other VR titles from Grip Digital, and in the meantime you can check out a gameplay video of The Solus Project in action.
