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?

“Barotrauma is planned to be in early access until the Fall of 2019.”

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?

“During Early Access, the game will be available at a reduced price to the community of players who continue to help us develop it. The complete game will then be normal-priced for new players after full release.”

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.”

Sneak peek: first aid and health system

The management of the physical well-being of the crew is a huge aspect of gameplay in Barotrauma, and crew members are more likely than not to break down over the course of a mission.

Our team wrote a little bit about what the new first aid and health system is going to be like – have a read on our blog and let us know what you think!

About This Game

Embrace the Abyss


Overcome crisis and the unrelenting pressure of a frozen ocean. In the not too distant future, where habitable places have become scarce, humanity has arrived on Jupiter’s moon. Europa with its frozen surface is a hostile environment, and life can only be found in the dark ocean beneath the ice – and the small pockets of human habitation are not the only form of life to be found there.

Play with friends in adrenaline-filled co-operative gameplay, navigate Europa’s frozen depths in single player mode and transform the game with fully integrated mod tools and Steam Workshop. Procedural levels and events ensure no two games will ever be exactly alike.

Key Features

  • Play as a submarine captain, engineer, mechanic, medic or assistant. Help your teammates survive, or make sure no one does.
  • Operate the many onboard systems of your submarine, from nuclear reactors to sonar, guns, engines and more.
  • Create tools, drugs and weapons with the comprehensive crafting system.
  • Navigate dangerous environments and flee or fight the creatures that you encounter.
  • Explore alien ruins and wrecked submarines to discover rare and powerful artifacts and resources.
  • Unleash your creativity with the submarine editor, character and procedural animation editor, procedural level editor and sprite and particle editors. Share and discover mods directly via Steam Workshop.
