About Solaris Offworld Combat
Solaris Offworld Combat takes you into a future where esports and TV teams have evolved to play on Virtual Holofields. You are an Athlon, part of an elite team of four, working to achieve legendary status in the world’s fastest game.
The rules are simple: take the control point and hold it down to score. The team that reaches the score limit or has the most points before the end of the five-minute round will be crowned the winner.
The checkpoint moves every 30 seconds, so you’ll always be on the move, which means you’ll have to watch out for plasma wells, proximity mines, and most importantly, enemy laser fire. Honestly, without proper coordination, equipment and teamwork; you will never have a chance.
Your virtual arsenal
Now you and your teammates won’t be alone, you will also have access to the best weapons in the galaxy. Each round you will start with your pistol, but you can find shotguns, carbines, rocket launchers, and grenade launchers scattered around the fields.
Each weapon has a set amount of ammo, so you won’t need to reload, but you might want to keep track of how many shots you have left.
Aim and shoot
We’ve always been looking for new and intriguing ways to integrate the PlayStation Aim controller, and Solaris is no different. We believe it is the perfect bridge between the virtual and real world to give you an incredible feeling of immersion and control. The feel of weapons materializing in your hands and the recoil of each explosion plunges you into battle like no other controller can.
You can also use your DualShock 4, and we’ve worked hard to make this option both comfortable and intuitive! Plus, whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, you can rest assured that you will have good luck in the first place.
Make the classification
Now, to truly become a legend in the world of Solaris, you will need to claim your place in the world rankings. Sort by week, month, or hour, and compare your stats to the competition when you’re trying 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 in addition to level unlocks, you’ll also have a chance to earn exclusive rewards by completing weekly challenges.
The Holofield awaits
