Monstrum For Nintendo Switch Launches On May 22, 2020

Eagerly awaiting the launch of Monstrum on Nintendo Switch? Well, the game is just one month from its big console debut!

SODESCO has confirmed that the horror survival adventure will be hitting Nintendo Switch and other platforms on 22 May 2020. The game sees players stranded on a creepy cargo ship – which they soon discover is infested with all manner of horrifying abominations!

As reported before, a planned physical release for the title will unfortunately see a delay due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. We’ll report back as soon as we hear more.

In the meantime, check out the official trailer and more details below:

Rotterdam, The Netherlands – April 22, 2020 –  On May 22, 2020, the critically acclaimed survival horror game Monstrum is coming digitally to PS4™, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The physical release is postponed to a later date due to the current global developments related to COVID-19. Monstrum combines deadly AI driven predators and permadeath within a procedurally generated container ship level, to create a truly re-playable horror experience on the open seas. A brand new trailer has released today to accompany the news.

A Nautical Horror

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.

About Monstrum

Death is permanent; get killed and you’ll be starting all over again. Can you survive Monstrum?
