Sci-fi submarine sim Barotrauma floats out of Early Access

By - | Views: 28,899

Barotrauma, a game that's about exploring the ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa, where many horrors wait below the surface of the water. A game that can go from gentle hums to chaos at any moment, it's certainly something if you manage to gather a few people together. It does also have a single-player mode too.

The 1.0 update introduces the faction overhaul with new missions and events, an improved reputation system, and lots of faction-specific items and perks. The update also unlocks the campaign ending, with a brand new endgame sequence to conclude your adventure.

My friends and I tried playing this like two years ago several times. It was guaranteed death and failure, so we gave up. Maybe it is a little easier now?
