Routine gameplay looks as fun as it is terrifying.

As players explore Lunar station’s abandoned malls and deteriorating Living Quarters, they will need to avoid the enemies that stalk the station. While running and hiding are both great options, you’ll also have access to the Cosmonaut Assistance Tool (C.A.T.). 

This handy device can be upgraded with various modules, which add unique functions that will aid with survival. Judging from the reveal trailer, the C.AT. can be used to locate nearby threats, while the official Steam page states that players can use it to defend themselves.
