Fortuna cover

Howzit, Outworlder! Welcome to Fortuna, nerve-center of Nef Anyo's attempts to terraform Venus and home to the Solaris rig jockeys who make it all happen. Talk to the local reprobates for all your quasi-legal needs! If you're looking to hit the Orb Vallis talk to Eudico. It ain't much, but it's home... provided you can handle all the noise comin' from the vents.

—Introductory Description
FortunaSplashScreen

The splash screen of Fortuna.

Fortuna is a neon-lit Corpus debt-internment colony located on Venus. Built within a massive underground cavern beneath Orb Vallis, it is home to the Solaris, a population of body augmented debt-slaves working for Nef Anyo.

As a city hub, players can interact with various NPCs to purchase items from shops, or accept quests or bounties to be completed out in the vallis. Players can enter the Orb Vallis via an elevator on the far end of the colony, leading to the open frigid field beyond. The elevator acts as a loading screen, and players will be unable to exit out the other end until the loading is complete.

Solaris UnitedEdit

The Solaris United are a rebel group of the Solaris people, seeking to liberate their fellow unhappy laborers who work for Nef Anyo underground in Fortuna. The Solaris people possess body augmentations that make them appear as Corpus-machine hybrids, and are responsible for processing the underground network of Orokin terraformation coolant and refining it for use back on the scorched surface of Orb Vallis on Venus.


Vox SolarisEdit

Vox Solaris is a covert operation known only to the leaders of the Solaris United, with a known association to The Quills. Their mission is to take down the gargantuan Profit-Taker Orb and Exploiter Orbs roaming the Orb Vallis.

She looks peaceful out there. But she'll turn. Prepare for that inevitability.

—The Business on Orb Vallis

The Orb Vallis is an open-world region on Venus. This land of duality, where cold tundras made by Orokin terraformation devices mix with the original harsh Venusian atmosphere, is home to multiple Corpus outposts and colonies, among them the debt-internment colony of Fortuna. It was introduced in Update 24.0 on November 8, 2018 on PC.


NotesEdit

  • Nef Anyo periodically displays prerecorded messages through various monitors in the complex, often in a degrading and accusing tone that often belittles the Solaris workers as nothing more than lazy freeloaders.
    • After Vox Solaris is completed, these messages will become less harsh or at least neutral in tone instead, often asking that the residents of Fortuna praise the Void, or telling them that their profit figures look "very promising" instead.
  • Interacting with the second worker hammering at the water platform at the entrance of Fortuna will replay the opening cutscene and the song "We All Lift Together".

TriviaEdit

  • On October 23, 2018, a Discord channel named "Solaris United" was started by Digital Extremes to tease the coming release of Fortuna.
    • An Alternate Reality Game (ARG) was also started at the same time, orchestrated by The Business of Solaris United. Players were rewarded with claimable in-game items after the ARG ends, given out through limited-time promo codes that expired on November 12, 2018.
  • Fortuna shares its name with the Roman goddess of fortune.
  • In Turkish, the word 'Fırtına' (pronounced very similarly) means storm, often Thunderstorm, which could refer to the whirling storm that surrounds the Orb Vallis

Viewing spawn point from logo's spot

  • A Digital Extremes logo can be found in Fortuna. Upon loading into Fortuna the player can bullet jump to the upper right ledge, then to the ledge above Rude Zuud's shop. Upon approaching the logo a prompt will appear to activate. Doing so will bring up a new screen that displays the credits of all those that worked on Fortuna in DE.
