Rotterdam, The Netherlands – April 22, 2020 – On May 22, 2020, the critically acclaimed survival horror game Monstrum is coming digitally to PS4TM, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The physical release is postponed to a later date due to the current global developments related to COVID-19. Monstrum combines deadly AI driven predators and permadeath within a procedurally generated container ship level, to create a truly re-playable horror experience on the open seas. A brand new trailer has released today to accompany the news.
A Nautical Horror
In Monstrum, players awaken trapped on a massive, derelict cargo ship with no knowledge of how they got there. Hunted by a horrific predator, they must scavenge the ship for clues and tools to find a means of escape. Left completely defenseless against a prowling beast; the only way to survive is to distract, hide, or slow the creature down before running for your life. Players only have one chance; permadeath and no save points means that once killed, they’ll have to start from scratch – so try not to get caught!
The procedurally generated ship not only ensures you stay lost in the labyrinth of rooms, pathways, and items that change with each new game, but also randomizes the monster hunting you too… so brace for the unexpected.
Stranded on an abandoned cargo ship, you find yourself hunted by one of Monstrum’s terrifying predators; each with their own strategy, abilities, and weaknesses. You’ll have to use your wits to outsmart your pursuer within the ship’s procedurally generated environment as you search for an escape. Death is permanent; get killed and you’ll be starting all over again. Can you survive Monstrum?
- Survive a changing environment and monster with each new game
- Use whatever you can find to outwit the monsters and escape the ship
- Hide, distract, and run, but be careful not to fall into the numerous traps
- Death is permanent. Try to stay alive or you’ll have to start all over again
