Close to the Sun Launches May 2 for PC, Later in 2019 for Consoles

Wired Productions have confirmed the release date for Close to the Sun in its latest trailer.

In case you missed our prior coverage, Close to the Sun is an Adventure Horror game exploring the laboratory/ship of Nikola Tesla.

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!

Those who pre-order the game via the Epic Game Store will receive a limited edition digital artbook on release day.

Close to the Sun will launch on May 2nd for Windows PC (via Epic Games Store), and 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
