Lethal Company is a co-op survival horror game where mining and industrialization of moons have transformed them into bustling hubs of activity, fueling the demand for resources in the ever-expanding universe. However, the flip side of this progress is the hazardous world of scrap collection on these industrialized moons. With abandoned factories, discarded machinery, and obsolete technology, these moons have become treacherous grounds for brave salvage crews. The lure of precious resources and a duty to the company require these salvage crews to investigate.
You must stay alive and survive against all the scary monsters split into three categories: Safe, Hostile when provoked, and Hostile. The “safe” monsters are the Roaming Locusts (found in swarms on the outside) and the Manticoils (birdlike creatures with four wings).
Then you have the Hoarding Bug (they wander facilities), Baboon Hawk (winged creatures that wander in groups outdoors), and Spore Lizard (harmless creatures found in corridors) that are considered “Hostile when provoked” monsters.
Finally, you have the Circuit Bee (found in outdoor groups guarding hives), Hygrodere (a giant slow-moving blob that roams the indoor corridors), Snare Flea (they hang from ceilings and drop down, then wrap around the neck and initiate suffocation), Bunker Spider (a massive arachnid), Bracken (a humanoid type of creature with spikes and large, glowing white eyes, that lurks indoors), Thumper (shark-like head and two long dragging arms that is found indoors), Coil-Head (similar to a mannequin with a spring-mounted head), Eyeless Dog (a sizable dog-like monster that prowls around outdoors after dark), Earth Leviathan (worm that hides underground outdoors), Forest Keeper (a massive creature that emerges after midday with loud footsteps), Jester (which resembles a jack-in-the-box), and the Ghost Girl (appears as a captivating entity to haunt a player) are considered the “Hostile” monster in Lethal Company.
In this article, we delve into the risks and challenges faced by scrap collectors and explorers, highlighting the perils they encounter in their quest for wealth and survival in the new early-access game called Lethal Company. You can also watch some gameplay here or watch below.
The hazardous world of scrap collection on industrialized moons
Operating in scrap collection on the various moons requires extraordinary courage and skill. Abandoned factories and derelict structures pose numerous threats, from confusing layouts to dangerous jumps and a potentially unstable bridge. Salvage crews often don’t last long navigating the corridors of the facilities. The disjointed nature of the facilities not only distracts the collectors but also allows them to lose track of time as more hostile creatures notice their presence.
Exploring perilous expeditions for precious resources with limited time
To work hard for the company, you must embark on dangerous expeditions into uncharted territories on industrialized moons. These daring individuals face many risks, including unexplored terrains, unstable ground, and the constant threat of creatures. The lack of comprehensive maps and data for these regions means that explorers often venture into the unknown with only three in-game days (approximately 10 minutes each in-game day) to find enough scrap to reach their profit quota. If you are successful, you can use the money you earn from collecting scrap to purchase items and ship upgrades to help you survive and progress throughout the game.
Lethal Company has an outstanding balance of horror and comedy in the early-access multiplayer survival-horror game. But its current state lacks many features and no real story behind it. You can expect Lethal Company to improve significantly as the development stages progress before the game releases. Lethal Company’s challenges and secret dangers will make it an absolute blast to try to escape in time.
The minimum requirements for Lethal Company are a 64-bit processor and operating system, Windows 10, Intel Core i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050, DirectX 11, and 1 GB available of hard drive storage space.
