Publisher Daedalic Entertainment and independent studios FakeFish and Undertow Games have released the second major update for the unique sci-fi submarine simulator Barotrauma, suitably titled “The Beasts Within.”
“The Beasts Within” is a free update for the hit early access survival game delivering a raft of new content and features:
- New Kastrull Submarine: The Kastrull is a dependable attack sub that brings plenty of firepower to any fight. Sporting an experimental open ballast tank, low tolerance to flooding, and numerous crew stations, a large, experienced crew will get the most out of this vessel.
- New Traitor Missions: The ability for players to secretly work against their teammates to manufacture their underwater demise is one of the most popular ways to play Barotrauma online. This update adds five bonus traitor missions, with more varied objectives than before.
- New Character Customization Options: 30 new character sprites, including new hair, beard and accessory options to give fans more ways to make their crew feel visually unique.
- New Hammerhead Monster Species: This new alien creature will pose a challenge even for Barotrauma veterans. The tiny Spawn variants aren’t a danger on their own, but in numbers they can easily overwhelm even a well prepared crew. Their Matriarch, on the other hand, is strong, angry and, in true sci-fi tradition, can punch a hole in your hull just for funsies.
Barotrauma‘s new update trailer gives you an up-close look at how all these features come together to raise the chaos onboard even higher:
This new content is accompanied by an improved server browser, radically overhauled bot AI logic to make it easier to tackle missions on your own in single-player, and over 100 quality-of-life improvements and bug fixes.
Barotrauma sends up to 16 players on an underwater journey beneath the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa in a range of submarines. It’s there you’ll discover alien wonders and horrors, command a variety of submarine systems, and fight to survive dangers from both outside and within.
