Publisher Wired Productions and developer Storm in a Teacup today announced that the highly-anticipated first-person horror game, Close to the Sun, will release exclusively on the Epic Games store for PC on the 2nd of May. The game will also release for PS4 and Xbox One later in 2019.
Grounded in an alternative 19th century 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, steeped in horror and mystery. Grand halls stand empty. The stench of rotting flesh lingers in the air. Silence. A single word is painted across the entrance… Quarantine!
May 2 can’t come quick enough for us. 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 breath-taking first-person horror adventure.
Close to the Sun is now available to pre-order at EpicGames.com for £24.99/€29.99/$29.99. All pre-purchasers will receive an exclusive, limited edition digital artbook at release.
