Wired Productions and Storm in a Teacup announced today that the highly-anticipated first-person horror game, Close to the Sun, will release exclusively on the Epic Games store for PC on May 2nd. In order to celebrate this announcement, the publisher has released a new trailer that you can find below.
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!
Using the raw power of the Unreal Engine 4 and embracing leading-edge technology to increase fidelity and quality within the game to deliver a breathtaking experience for players, Close to the Sun has already garnered considerable interest and praise from critics as well as fans.
Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions, said:
“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.”
