They’ve not gone on holiday.Step into the role of sharp-witted astrobiologist Yasna, as she awakens on the hostile surface of a distant planet and is thrust into a life-or-death rescue mission. On Regis III—uninhabited by humans and unexplored—she’ll be faced with the daunting task of finding the missing crew members of an interstellar scientific expedition which ended suddenly, far from home and alone. Diving deeper into the mystery of her missing colleagues and noticing the appearance of mind-bending scientific phenomena, it soon becomes apparent that Regis III may hold terrifying secrets on its dusty surface. Unable to turn back, struggling with unexpected choices and their consequences, Yasna is forced to rethink not only her own but many of mankind’s ambitions and biases in this daring expedition.”
The Invincible launches in 2023 for PC and consoles and is developed by talent who has previously worked on The Witcher 3, Cyberpunk 2077, Dead Island, Dying Light, and Call of Juarez. It is set in a hard sci-fi world by Polish writer Stanisław Lem, who is perhaps best known for Solaris.
