Earth has been destroyed and mankind lingers on in a small fleet of ships near Pluto. As humanity’s last hope, you are sent to scout a distant planet as a potential location for a colony. After years of space travel disaster strikes however, and your ship is destroyed when approaching the planet…

Holy crap! That is the brief introduction to upcoming indie title The Solus Project, a “work of love” for Grip Games and Teotl Studios – and judging by the trailers alone, it has been a whole lot of love with over 100,000 hand-crafted models being used throughout the game world to ensure there is something to discover everywhere you go, including a number of hidden areas and in total more than 150 secrets scattered throughout the world for you to discover.

The Solus Project is a single player survival exploration game, experienced in first-person view. There are no human or animal enemies. Your enemy is the world itself, it’s climate, it’s violent storms that can kick-up at any time. Unlock massive tombs and underground structures, take cover from the extremely hot days, and find shelter from the equally extremely cold nights.

Gather, manage and craft items to survive as you work your way through what above ground can feel open and free, but when underground becomes a more linear and story driven game experience.

Can you uncover the deep mystery? The Solus Project lands as an Xbox Game Preview on Friday 26th February.
