Monstrum

Survival horror game Monstrum will launch digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch on May 22, publisher Soedesco and developer Team Junkfish announced.

The physical edition has been postponed to a later date due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Monstrum first launched for PC via Steam in May 2015.

Here is an overview of the game, via Soedesco:

About

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.

Key Features

  • 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.
