HAMBURG, Germany – June 5, 2019 – Publisher Daedalic Entertainment and independent developers FakeFish and Undertow Games have released the hilarious multiplayer sci-fi submarine simulator Barotrauma for Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam Early Access for $29.99/£21.49 GBP/€24.99 Euro. Barotrauma sends up to 16 players on an underwater journey beneath the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa, where you’ll discover alien wonders and/or horrors, command various submarine systems, and fight to survive dangers from both outside and within.
Check out Barotrauma’s new launch teaser here:
The feature trailer is available here:
Navigate a chilling ocean filled with strange creatures, explore alien ruins, and cooperate with your crewmates to complete missions on your voyage. Choose from several classes and work together managing complex systems, including the nuclear reactor, guns, engines and sonar. Fend off hostile monsters, seal deadly radioactive leaks, and survive crewmates infected with extraterrestrial viruses.
Barotrauma’s thrilling and often hilarious chaos is both fun to play and watch thanks to procedurally generated levels, ridiculous ragdoll physics and full mod support. But beware: some threats are closer than you think. Multiplayer’s traitor mode option may randomly assign players as secret conspirators, complete with their own individual missions like assassination and sabotage.
- Team up in adrenaline-filled 2D co-op multiplayer for up to 16 players. Or betray your crew and bury them in an icy grave…
- Master intricate submarine management and crafting systems to survive Europa’s frigid depths.
- Explore a vast ocean filled with unknown life and other dangerous secrets on an alien world.
- Play as one of several classes, including captain, engineer, security officer, mechanic and medic.
- Procedurally created levels and events ensure no two games are the same.
- Make your own monstrosities! Transform the game via Steam Workshop and create your own submarines, sprites, levels and alien creatures for other players to download.
Early access is just the beginning for Barotrauma! The game will continuously be updated and expanded with new content, features and improvements in partnership with the game’s community.
