Junkfish have also revealed that Monstrum 2 will be exiting Early Access and entering full release soon on Steam. Play as friend or foe in this procedurally-generated sea labyrinth that gives you the choice to become the hunter or be the hunted in this player-versus-player environment.
Play as a prisoner: dare to brave your breakout as a prisoner? Stranded with other prisoners alike, survival tactics are integral to your escape from Sparrow Lock, a decrepit sea fortress harbouring an unwanted guest. It is up to you and your fellow inmates how you survive as you use your cunning and your wits to navigate the abandoned facility’s rusted labyrinth and overcome puzzles along the way. Band up with three other players as you survive the onslaught against another player who assumes the grizly role of the monster.
Play as the monster: does bloodlust thrill you? With a variety of deadly monsters to choose from, hunt down your prey as you attempt to exploit the environment to your advantage using your own unique abilities. Four prisoners to horrify, four prisoners to kill!
Monstrum 2 Features:
- Explore and survive a procedurally-generated sea fortress – Trapped within Sparrow Lock, navigate through a decaying research facility filled with rusted rooms and walkways as you face unique gameplay challenges.
- Experience intense first-person horror – As a prisoner, solve puzzles and strategize your escape as you hide, run and vault for your life – failure to do so locks you in a terrifying chase of cat-and-mouse!
- Survive together or risk perishing alone – Teamwork makes the dream work! Work together with friends and other players as you attempt to flee from the monster in a battle of wits vs brawns, players vs player!
