Dundee, Scotland, May 29th, 2019 - The long-awaited sequel to the hugely successful rogue-lite horror game Monstrum will be coming to PC in 2020.

Junkfish are proud to announce Monstrum II, a direct multiplayer sequel to Monstrum. The terrifying rogue-like survival horror set at sea was released on PC in 2015; Quickly becoming a fan favourite for streamers, let’s players and horror game enthusiasts worldwide.

 

Monstrum II pits players against terrifying monsters that are controlled by other players in a procedurally generated horror labyrinth. The survivors must escape the grotesque experiment taking place onboard the decaying 1970s era sea fortress, all the time whilst evading the horrors within.

 

“We were thrilled fans from all over enjoyed the first game, and we're extremely excited to delve further into Monstrum to give them more of what they enjoy,” said Adam Dart, Creative Director of Junkfish. “While the first title was a single player experience, Monstrum II will focus on a horror experience you can enjoy with others.”

 

Players will have to think on their feet and adapt to a dynamic, open-ended horror playground. It’s down to you how you tactically exploit the different environmental and gameplay challenges generated with each playthrough, regardless of if you’re playing as the survivors, or as one of the deadly oceanic monstrosities hunting them down.

 

There are countless solutions to the ever-changing obstacles in Monstrum II, whether you’re using scavenged items to access hidden routes; brutally smashing through destructible objects; climbing the environment to ambush your prey; working cooperatively with your fellow survivors to reach important equipment, or going solo and hiding to gracefully avoid detection.

Monstrum II will launch on PC late 2020.
