What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Barotrauma has been a great community assisted effort for years now, and with this in mind, we want the community features Steam offers in-game as soon as possible and available to you as we move towards full launch, while still letting you be involved in the development, giving us feedback and suggestions, and getting started with mods.

Steam Early Access is also a step towards sustainability in the development of Barotrauma. The larger audience and the income will help us to make the game fly higher and live longer. We hope that whether a longtime player, or a newcomer, you will find the new platform and the opportunities it opens up for Barotrauma as exciting as we do.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Early Access allows us to develop Barotrauma iteratively with our community. Barotrauma will stay in Early Access until the planned content and features have been implemented.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Barotrauma will feature a much improved campaign along with one of our most anticipated features: Physically playable outposts and other campaign locations, allowing us to create a seamless and deep world for both single player and coop games. The full version will also feature a lot more content as well, which means additional creatures, locations, stock submarines, and missions.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the key features listed under 'About This Game' are implemented, though content and a fleshed out campaign mode will be added during early access.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The Early Access price is planned to be reduced via discounts regularly. As we expand the game, add content and new features, we may evaluate the pricing again at a later stage. Everyone who joins us while we are in Early Access will have access to all future versions and full release, however big Barotrauma grows.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Barotrauma has always been a community effort, and that doesn't change with early access - your feedback, suggestions, ideas, enthusiasm and other contributions help us to make a better game for you. Just as importantly, we are excited to empower you with better mod tools and a better way to share and discover content right from day 1, and to provide technical support to you as you create new things with those tools.

Early access players can report issues on our GitHub repository and submit ideas and feature requests on our discussion forum.”

EARLY ACCESS ROADMAP

About This Game

"Work together to explore and survive, and/or sabotage one another and let the ship go down in fire and flood."
- Rock Paper Shotgun

WELCOME TO EUROPA

Barotrauma is a 2D co-op survival horror submarine simulator, inspired by games like FTL: Faster Than Light, Rimworld, Dwarf Fortress and Space Station 13. It’s a Sci-Fi game that combines ragdoll physics and alien sea monsters with teamwork and existential fear.

EMBRACE THE ABYSS

In the not too distant future, humanity has fled to Jupiter’s moon. With its irradiated icy surface, life can only be found in the ocean below. Travel through a punishing underwater world and discover what lies in the depths of Europa. Stay alert: danger in Barotrauma doesn’t announce itself.

HELP YOUR CREW SUCCEED, OR MAKE SURE NO ONE DOES

There are as many ways to enjoy Barotrauma as there are ways to die in it. Work together with your crew to achieve your goals, or brace for betrayal when you have a traitor on board. Play with friends, strangers, or your worst enemies.

EXPLORE, OPERATE, COMMUNICATE

Navigate underwater, complete missions for the last remnants of humankind, explore the ruins of an alien civilization, flee or fight monsters. Operate complex on-board systems and devices like the sonar, nuclear reactor, weapons, engines and pumps. Communication is key!

EXPERIMENT, CRAFT, CREATE

Master the complex on-board wiring and the comprehensive crafting and medical systems. Create your own submarines and monsters with built-in editors to rival the standard ones. Even tap directly into our source code and mod away.

Features


  • Best enjoyed in multiplayer, with 2–16 players on a submarine. Supplement your player count with bots as needed; single player also available and being developed further.
