Sker Ritual Launches on 18 April for PC and console

Round-Based Survival FPS Receives a Massive 1.0 Update Featuring New Objectives, Weapons, Story Content and more.

Penarth, Wales, Thursday 14 March – Wales Interactive has announced their round-based zombie survival FPS Sker Ritual will launch on 18 April for PC, PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S. A spinoff to the award-winning British horror title Maid of Sker and developed by a core team of five, Sker Ritual contains everything from the PC Early Access version as well as a huge 1.0 update, featuring  new objectives, weapons, story content and more.

In Sker Ritual, players battle waves of vicious horrors, alone or in up to four-player co-op, as they attempt to survive the onslaught of the Quiet Ones. Shoot through hordes of enemies, collect Celtic God powers, upgrade an arsenal of steampunk weapons and attempt to defeat the evil on Sker Island.

Sker Ritual Key Features:

  • Traverse alone or rally with friends: Battle the Quiet Ones alone or with up to three additional players in online co-op. Be warned, the hordes scale based on the player count.
  • Four haunting locations to explore: Fight your way through four maps each with their own secrets to uncover. Explore the Cursed Lands of Lavernock, Ashes of Sker Hotel, Sewers of the Dead, and Deadly Lover’s Fortress. 
  • Wield the power of Celtic Gods: Killing enemies offer a chance to drop powerful Miracles, each offering a choice of three upgradable powers. Bound to a Celtic God, each upgrade comes with a different rarity, core attributes and power.
  • Face off against terrifying horrors: The Quiet Ones are back and they have brought friends. Sker Island is crawling with new enemies and elites, each with their own abilities and one goal in mind, total destruction.

Pre-orders are open on PlayStation Store, with Xbox soon to follow. Sker Ritual is currently available in Early Access on Steam.

Sker Ritual is being developed by Wales Interactive. You can keep up to date with the game on X and also join the Discord.
