About Solaris Offworld Combat

Solaris Offworld Combat immerses you in a future where esports and televised teams have evolved into playing on Virtual Holofields. You are an Athlon, part of an elite team of four, working to achieve legendary status in the fastest game around. 

The basics 

The rules are simple: take the Control Point and hold it to score. The team that reaches the score limit or has the most points before the five-minute round is over, will be crowned the winners. 

The Control Point moves every 30 seconds, so you’ll always be on the move, which means you’ll need to watch out for plasma pits, proximity mines, and most importantly enemy laser fire. Honestly, without proper coordination, equipment, and teamwork; you’ll never stand a chance. 

Your virtual arsenal 

Now, you and your teammates won’t be alone out there, you’ll also have access to the best weapons in the galaxy. Each round you’ll start off with your pistol, but you can find shotguns, rifles, rocket launchers, and grenade launchers scattered around the holofields.  

Each weapon has a set amount of ammo, so you won’t need to reload, but you may want to keep track of how many shots you have left. 

Take aim and fire

We’ve always been looking for new and intriguing ways to integrate the PlayStation Aim controller, and Solaris is no different. We believe it’s the perfect bridge between the virtual and real world to give you an incredible sense of immersion and control. The sensation of weapons materializing in your hands and the recoil of each blast immerses you in battle like no other controller is able to.

You can also use your DualShock 4, and we’ve worked hard to make sure that option is both comfortable and intuitive! Also, whether you’re left or right handed, you can rest assured that you’ll have a fair shot at the top spot. 

Making the Leaderboard

Now, to truly become a legend in the world of Solaris, you’ll need to claim your rank in the global leaderboards. Sort by weekly, monthly, or all time, and compare your stats to the competition as you try to earn that top spot.

From Rookie to Legend

Play to reach level 50 and show off everything you’ve earned along the way. Customize your Athlon to your liking, and on top of level unlocks, you’ll also have a chance to earn exclusive rewards by completing weekly challenges. 

The Holofield is waiting

Be one of the first to travel to Gemini, our latest and tightest arena yet. Launch grenades over the walls or flank the enemy down either side. There’s never any downtime when you’re dealing with the fastest shooter in PS VR. 

Are you ready to become a Champion? 

*Solaris Offworld Combat will be available in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, The Middle East, & Oceania.

  • Hey Shabs, I wish you guys kept supporting and reworking Firewall: Zero Hour, a game that was so fun and had so much potential to be even better. Here’s hoping you guys will have a proper sequel with better features on PS5 VR, but I’m going to skip this title as it doesn’t interest me very much.

    • I totally agree. Firewall still had a large player base. Please don’t let them down, or at least provide a new season of operations…

  • Will this title be upgraded to support PSVR2 in the future? Thanks!

  • I find that PSVR games don’t work as well on my PS5 as they did on the PS4 Pro but those are older games that haven’t necessarily been optimized for PS5. Has Solaris Offworld Combat been optimized for PSVR on PS5?

  • I hope there’s a free weekend soon. It’s how I was introduced to Firewall and ended buying it.

    There are many games that I’m wary of buying before trying, and with VR that’s even more true.

  • I’m not sure I’d want to buy a game from your company again,after the poor support,and some really bad updates for firewall.

  • I cant wait to Play SOLARIS! Its Out Of This World AMAZING!

  • I was only “slightly interested” until I saw 60% off… cant pass that up. though on the same time I get the feeling of “if youre selling your game that cheap on day one do you really have confidence that itll be good/sale?” Buuuuuuttttt Rocket League was free and we see how that turned out sooo who knows

  • So excited about this game!!! But @FirstContactEntertainment, why isn’t the game available on PS Store in my region?? As of May 19th the game is not available in Sweden, so I really feel like I’m missing out on a lot of great action :(

  • Why it is not available in polish ps store?

  • Its not on the Danish Playstation Store…. Make it happen. :)

  • It is also still not in the Dutch playstation store, or any European playstation store actually…
    Indeed, make it available so there is a better alternative to alvo…

  • abramelin6dallas

    Where abouts is the leaderboard?

  • 50% pricecut for the first 2 weeks of release would have been nice if the game was available everywhere.
    It only got released yesterday on the Dutch PSN, and full price too.
    So no buy from me I guess.
