Fight Off The Vicious Hordes in Wave Based Shooter Sker Ritual, Out Now

Wales Interactive brings co-op FPS zombie survival to consoles and PC today

Penarth, Wales, Thursday 18 April – Wales Interactive has released their round-based zombie survival FPS Sker Ritual on PC, PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S. A spin off to 2020’s award-winning Maid of Sker, it features all the content from the PC early access plus a massive 1.0 update, including new objectives, weapons, story content and more.

In Sker Ritual, players will battle hordes of horrific enemies, alone or in up to four-player co-op, and attempt to survive the onslaught of Sker Island’s vicious Quiet Ones. Gun down masses of enemies, collect Celtic God powers, upgrade an arsenal of steampunk weapons and attempt to defeat the evil on Sker Island.

Sker Ritual has four unique locations to explore, with countless secrets to discover, optional objectives, and easter eggs which progress the story from Maid of Sker’s evil ending.

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.

“We are super excited to bring Sker Ritual to players on console and PC.” said Dr. David Banner MBE – CEO & Co-Founder at Wales Interactive. “Over the past two years, our core team of five has been working non-stop to implement community feedback from the PC Early Access, ensuring the 1.0/console launch is the complete package. We cannot wait to see the community response to Sker Ritual. Good luck out there, The Quiet Ones are waiting for you.”

Sker Ritual will also feature cross-play between Xbox and PC players.

Sker Ritual is out now and available on Steam, PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S for £19.99 / $24.99, or opt for the Digital Deluxe featuring the game and four cosmetic DLCs for £29.99 / $34.99. You can keep up to date with the game on X and also join the Discord.
