Monstrum 2 is now in closed beta

Monstrum 2, the multiplayer survival horror title from Junkfish, is now in closed beta. Where Monstrum was a single-player, first-person survival horror game, Monstrum 2 expands the premise and is an asymmetrical, 4v1 multiplayer game.

Retaining the nautical setting of the first game, Monstrum 2 is set on an abandoned sea fortress and features procedurally generated gameplay. Taking cues from Dead By Daylight, Monstrum 2 sees players using stealth and teamwork to escape or take down the survivors.

Scheduled to launch in 2020, players can sign-up for the closed beta at

Play as a human prisoner

  • Use teamwork to complete puzzles, clear obstacles, and unlock new areas.
  • Scavenge items that can help you exploit the environment and outwit the monster.
  • Stay stealthy by using hiding spots and distractions to your advantage.

Play as a monster

  • Master different monsters and use their unique abilities to hunt down the prisoners.
  • Smash through walls, climb on ceilings, leap across distances, or teleport to your prey. Each monster leverages the environment in unique ways to ambush unsuspecting players.

Monstrum 2 is coming to PC in 2020. It will launch for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X at a later date.
