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!
