Close to the Sun release

Wired Productions – publishers of games like Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and GRIP: Combat Racing – and developers Storm in a Teacup have announced the Epic Games store release date for their upcoming first-person horror, Close to the Sun. It’s also expected to launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.

Set in an alternative 19th century, one where famed inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla was able to fulfil his potential and change the world forever, Close to the Sun sees players step aboard the Helios, a colossal vessel for scientific research. A single word is painted across the entrance… QUARANTINE! Needless to say it’s an adventure that’s steeped in horror and mystery as the grand halls stand empty, the stench of rotting flesh lingers in the air and there’s only silence within.

Using the raw power of the Unreal Engine 4, embracing leading-edge technology to increase fidelity and quality within the game to deliver a breathtaking experience for players, Close to the Sun is already gaining plenty of interest and praise from fans and critics. And you’ll be able to get stuck into the experience on 2nd May when it arrives on PC via the Epic Games store, where it’ll be priced at £24.99. Although there’s no set release date for its arrival on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the current plan is for a release later in 2019.

“May 2 can’t come quick enough for us,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “Our partnership with the amazing team at Epic Games has not only accelerated the development process of Close to the Sun in terms of accessing the sheer pixel-pushing grunt of Unreal Engine 4, but allowed the incredibly talented Storm in a Teacup team to showcase their collective talents to deliver a truly memorable and breathtaking first-person horror adventure.”

Been gaming casually since the SNES as a youngster but found my true passion for games on the Playstation 1 (the forbidden word ooo). My addiction grew to its pinnacle with the purchase of an Xbox 360 & Xbox Live Service. A recovering GS hunter that will still play literally any game.
