Dive into the depths with Barotrauma Free Weekend on Steam

The sci-fi submarine sim is available at 75% off until Monday
Hamburg, November 11th, 2021 – The chilling sci-fi submarine sim Barotrauma from FakeFish and Undertow Games will go on sale on Steam from November 11th at 7 PM CET to November 15th at 7PM CET. Players can get the game at 75% off – the game’s deepest discount ever. For anyone who wants to take that submarine for a spin first, Barotrauma will participate in the Steam Free Weekend starting today and lasting until Monday.
Barotrauma sends up to 16 players on an underwater journey in a sci-fi submarine in the oceanic depths of Jupiter’s moon Europa.  The crew discovers alien wonders and horrors, commands various submarine systems, and fights to survive dangers from both outside and within. The game is continuously being updated and improved.
Barotrauma has recently received the large “Among the Ancients” update, completely overhauling the creepy ancient ruins, adding a character progression system and making characters more diverse. As a result, the game has seen its all-time high of concurrent players on Steam, with more than 10k players manning their submarines at the same time.
