The terrors of the sea will challenge players in this upcoming release.

Beneath is an action adventure horror game with a first-person perspective from Camel 101 announced for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on Steam. A release date hasn’t been announced yet.

The game’s main character is Noah Quinn, a deep-sea diver who is trapped underwater in a nightmare scenario. He finds a secret network of scientific, research stations below the ocean, all of which are all connected by submarines. The facilities went too far into their quest for some secret knowledge and unleashed horrors across the bases. Quinn’s crew is dead and he’s the remaining survivor, trying to prevent what he discovered under the ocean from spreading to the surface.

The character’s sanity is affected by these facilities and it sounds like his declining psychological state is woven into the gameplay. Monsters and other horrors come from the facilities’ experiments that Quinn has to survive. There will be different enemy types and creatures with adaptive AI. The game’s environments will be destructible. Weapons can be customized but players will have to manage their resources as ammo is limited. The player will also have a diving suit they can use to explore the stations and the ocean itself.

Camel 101 is a small independent studio based in Portugal, led by two brothers who co-founded the company. The studio also made Those Who Remain, a 2020 psychological horror game that released for all platforms. The studio’s first title, a real-time space strategy game called Gemini Wars, released in November 2012.

Beneath has been in development for the last two years. The game can be wishlisted on Steam.
