10 Chambers Collective has announced the release of the Rebirth update for their cooperative horror shooter GTFO on Steam.

This is the game’s fifth major title update, and the biggest GTFO expansion yet.

Rebirth introduces a new ecological sector to the game’s underground facility which is “flush with fauna, unique mission scenarios, horrifying monsters to face,” and introduces new gameplay mechanics.

The update puts up farther down into The Complex into an area called Floodways. This new environment substitutes a dark and cold industrial aesthetic for one where “nature has sought to reclaim the domain.” The Floodways also features clues as to why players are trapped in The Complex and imprisoned by The Warden.

New to the game are Booster Implants, which give players additional incentive to re-enter The Complex.

Players can now find artifacts within the game that The Warden collects. If he likes what you find, he will reward you with Booster Implants which are an injection that boosts abilities. These boosts include better weapon handling and faster terminal hacking.

Artifacts are delivered to The Warden regardless of completing an expedition, giving players an additional resource when revisiting a Rundown that may have bested them previously.

New in the GTFO Rebirth Update:

  • New Environment: Floodways — Mother Nature has met her match with The Warden. Plantlife has been allowed to propagate in the new Floodways sector of The Complex, but so have new nightmares and obstacles. You’ll need a steady trigger finger as opposed to a green thumb to survive here.
  • New Enemy: Spawner — Keep your eyes forward and also up. Spawners reside on ceilings, giving birth to monsters even in rooms already previously cleared.
  • Booster Implants — Collect artifacts during the Rundown and offer them to The Warden for a prize: an injection of “special” liquid into your brain that boosts abilities. Booster Implants carry to additional Rundown playthroughs even if killed, offering players additional incentive to progress.

The game released through Steam in Early Access in December 2019 and is available for purchase for $34.99.

To celebrate the launch of the Rebirth update, which is free to owners of the game, GTFO is on sale for a limited time at 20% off.
