Latest Gameplay Trailer for ‘Fort Solis’ Ramps up the Creepiness [Watch]

With their psychological cosmic sci-fi thriller Fort Solis releasing in a few weeks, developer Fallen Leaf and Dear Villagers have released an all new gameplay trailer. The short-but-sweet trailer showcases the eerie setting of Fort Solis, while also offering quick glimpses of the game’s mechanics.

“We wanted Fort Solis to tell a story through a mix of interactivity and artistry,” said James Tinsdale, Game Director at Fallen Leaf. “Using state of the art mo-cap performances, high fidelity Unreal Engine 5 graphics, music by legendary composer Ted White, and our all-star cast of professional actors, we sought to create a truly immersive experience that grounds players in this sci-fi mystery. With our cinematic ‘story-first’ approach, we wanted to distill the essence of a sci-fi thriller into a format that anyone can play, including non-gamers.”

Dear Villagers aimed to have Fort Solis ground players in its hard sci-fi drama with no camera cuts, load times, or HUD. Inspired by titles like Firewatch and Until Dawn, Fort Solis “offers a hybrid piece of media, emphasizing narration and immersion” that’s told across four chapters, which can be binged in one intense session, or played chapter by chapter like a Netflix series.

Fort Solis centres around engineer Jack Leary (played by Roger Clark), who responds to a distress signal in the midst of a sandstorm in the blood red wasteland of the Martian desert. Players can explore the Fort Solis station at their own pace, gathering clues from its bunkers, labs, crew quarters, and harsh, stormy surface to understand just what exactly happened to its inhabitants. As the night grows longer, events escalate spiral out of control, and the mystery as to what’s really going on deepens.

Fort Solis will release on August 22 for PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam. There will also be a physical release of the game, courtesy of Merge Games.
