Monstrum is a survival horror game that takes place on a derelict ship. It takes the traditional survival horror formula and remixes it completely with procedurally generated levels and AI-driven predators. Monstrum will force players to use their wits and whatever tools they can find to outrun or outsmart their pursuers. To make things even more challenging, death in Monstrum is permanent. Die in the game, and players will have to restart the game from scratch. The game is set to be released on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Adam’s Venture: Origins is a modern remaster of the episodic adventure franchise, Adam’s Venture. Streamlined and replotted to forge an engaging narrative with new visuals, Adam’s Venture: Origins reimagines the events during the first exploits of the titular character. The game was released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2016, and is set to be released on the Nintendo Switch this year.
In other video game delay news, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced the indefinite delays of The Last Of Us Part II and Iron Man VR, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The company has begun issuing automatic refunds to players to have pre-ordered the games.
