Survival horror game Monstrum will launch for Switch in addition to its previously announced PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, publisher Soedesco and developer Team Junkfish announced. It will release both physically and digitally across all consoles. A release date was not announced.
Monstrum first launched for PC via Steam in May 2015. Here is an overview of the game, via Soedesco:
Escape from a Shapeshifting Freighter
Monstrum is procedurally generated, so in each playthrough players will face new fears and will have to invent new tactics. The goal of the game is to escape an abandoned cargo ship, infested by one of three daunting monsters called the Brute, the Fiend, and the Hunter. Each monster has its own behavior and requires a distinct approach. This, combined with the fact that the arena is different every time, makes Monstrum a unique experience with every playthrough.
- Survive a different environment and monster each time you play.
- Use whatever you can find to outwit the monsters and escape the ship.
- Stay alive or start all over again. Good luck. Start running.
- Hide, distract and run, but be careful not to fall into the numerous traps.
