Among the Ancients is the latest update for the tough submarine survival game Barotrauma, bringing with it new alien ruins and character progression to give you more of everything.

Characters got a visual overhaul with many new hair styles, facial features and accessories. Skin tone can now also be changed, thanks to the implementation of a skin shader system. While character animations and proportions are now more realistic, they still retain their trademark ragdoll appearance and movement for maximum viewing pleasure as you fall about all over the place. The new progression system enables you to unlock special talents and buffs to make each class a bit more unique too.

You also get to explore the last remains of an ancient alien civilization too, featuring a refreshed and much more spooky visual style. Not only that, the generation involved in making them got overhauled and they're bigger so there's plenty more to explore. There's plenty more like a Swarm Feeder creature, Gravity Sphere and so on.

Could be a good one to play through with friends on Halloween, go check it out. Just be warned - it can quickly turn into rather heated chaos in a very short amount of time.

Barotrauma is available to buy on Humble Store or Steam.

I much prefer it when game developers release a game, and continue to add to the base game, rather than follow up with paid DLC.

Buying a base game and knowing that I won't get as much out of it, without also getting the DLC packs, makes the initial purchase unappealing and even playing the game unappealing.

Alternatively, if I haven't bought a game yet, and I see the developers extending the base game, it makes my purchase of that title more appealing. This seems to be the case with Barotrauma.

At the same time, continuing to work on the game, making small quality of life improvements, optimising performance and eliminating bugs, is a good sign for buyers too.
