Monstrum 2, the asymmetric survival horror game leaves Early Access on September 6th

From Press Release:

Dundee, UK – August 18, 2022 – Something dark stirs in the depths. Junkfish are ready to unleash their bone-chilling survival horror title, Monstrum 2, out of early access and into full release onto Steam on September 6th. Alongside this launch, they will be offering an exclusive discount of 10% off the full retail price of $14.99, running from the 6th until the 12th September 2022.

Get ready to play as friend or foe in this spine-tingling player-versus-player survival horror game, where players are put to the test: can you survive as a prisoner with other inmates in the harrowing Sea Fort of Sparrowlock? Or can you successfully terrorize and hunt down all your prey?

Monstrum 2 Features:

  • Can you and other inmates escape Sparrowlock? – Work together with three other prisoners as you come face-to-face with unique gameplay challenges and cross paths with an unwelcome visitor, alone together with limited resources.
  • Or will you join the hunt? –  Play a variety of different monsters, each with distinctive playstyles. Will you stalk and ambush your prey as The Bhagra? Or would you rather thrash and terrorize your victims through raw strength and speed as The Brute? Perhaps haunting your kill through telekinetic means as The Malacosm could make for a thrilling hunt! The choice is ultimately yours
  • Bear witness to thrilling, first-person horror – Devise an escape plan and tackle puzzles as you flee for your life, evading the predator that has sought you out! Run, duck, hide or rise to the challenge when necessary, using items such as the fire extinguisher to halt their movement to get out of dicey situations!
  • Endure the terror together or jeopardize your safety – Strength truly is in numbers! Cooperate with friends or other players as you overcome the obstacles that lie in your wake – outwit the monster and coordinate your escape from the Monstrum!

“We are thrilled to finally be moving Monstrum 2 out of Early Access and into full release,” says Adam Dart, Director of Team Junkfish.

“The game has been one of the most ambitious titles we’ve tackled and Early Access has allowed us to experiment with the community to see what works and what doesn’t. We are truly grateful for all of the support we have received from the community and we are very much looking forward to this new phase of the game.”
