Monster Sanctuary Launches for Steam Early Access on August 28

Team17 have confirmed when Monster Sanctuary will enter Steam Early Access.

The monster-raising metroidvania will enter Steam Early Access on August 28th. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game.

You can find a brief run-down below:

Featuring three-versus-three turn-based combat, a ‘metroidvania’-like world ripe for exploration and discovery, and many dozens of monsters to tame and collect along the way, Monster Sanctuary challenges players to become the ultimate creature keeper and uncover the truth behind a mystery that threatens the harmony between humans and monsters.

Monster Sanctuary sees players harness the powers of each of the monsters they manage to collect, unlocking unique skills trees that enable the party to explore and traverse the variety of environments they discover. The game’s deeply tactical combat relies on different configurations of monster combinations for success, while the promise of undiscovered secrets and rare monster eggs means rewards will be unlocked as the story-drive adventure progresses.

In case you missed it, you can find our thorough hands-on preview for the game here. Our preview is based on the playable demo, which is available now.
