About Barotrauma

About this game

Dive into the dark and dangerous world of Barotrauma, a cooperative submarine disaster simulator videogame published by Daedalic Entertainment.

Cooperate To Survive

Players control a submarine and its crew as they explore the depths of the hostile foreign moon Europa. The moon is full of danger, and the players must work together to find a way to survive. It will test the player's ability to work together as a team, and they must use their submarine's resources wisely to survive the dangers of the alien ocean.

Do Or Die

The game features a variety of different submarines, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. With permadeath as a constant threat, players must be careful not to make any mistakes that could cost the lives of their crew. Barotrauma is an unforgiving game that will push the players to their limits, a challenging and rewarding experience that is unlike any other.

Everyone Has A Job

From repairing critical systems to fighting off terrifying creatures of the deep, every moment will keep you on the edge of your seat. Take on the role of captain, engineer, mechanic, medic or security officer. With pulse-pounding gameplay and an immersive story, Barotrauma is an experience you won't soon forget.

"Barotrauma is an exciting, cooperative resource management game that is also captivating in Singleplayer thanks to its deep atmosphere."

"I probably admire Barotrauma more than I enjoyed it. I like the setting. The gameplay is very clever, even if it isn’t always exciting. I didn’t get a chance to get deep into...

Really fun co-op game with up to 8 players. So you'll probably never have to leave someone out. Emphasis on the "co-op," it's not really worth playing by yourself. This is a great game with good progression and difficulty, and even mod support if you want to change things up. If you're looking for another game to play with your friends, this is a good choice.

Barotrauma is great for multiplayer. The single player is lacking but the trip out into the vast unknown can be tense, humorous, or just about any emotion you could expect. I feel like it's best when you're going cooperative with a group of people you know as you tend to have after mission conversations.

Fantastic submarine crew simulator, not for the thalassophobic. Way better with a bigger crew, but still worth it nonetheless as an exciting and challenging experience.

Sunk itself; don't sink your money into it.

Intriguing concept held back by very, very poor execution. Clunky, overly obtuse controls and game play mar what should be a unique experience.

In short, crap, dumb and boring.

This game is so bad. Friends picked it up and wanted to play multi-player. Started by doing the tutorials for the first 3 "classes" and became super frustrated in all of the tutorials. They guide you through nothing and it was just hit and miss if I completed them. The game itself when we played was so boring. There were three of us and we never managed to finish a mission because there was no clue as to what must be done and there was basically nothing for me to do. One steered, the other repaired and I wandered around aimlessly doing nothing. In short, crap, dumb and boring.

Base game is solid for early access, it has a lot of future potential. Mod content is great.

Barotrauma as of right now has an okay amount of stuff to do considering it is in early access. The true potential in Barotrauma is the mods and future development. There are so many great mods already which add a lot of good content. The base game of Barotrauma is solid and is just waiting for new stuff to be added in the future.
