Sker Ritual Launched Today on Steam, PS5 and Xbox X|S

Do you love fast-paced survival Solo/Co-Op FPS action? I know I do! I must admit, I haven’t heard of this game before, but the PR dropped into my email and got my attention straight away. Coming from the developers at Wales Interactive, Sker Ritual looks like a lot of fun, just check out the trailer below!

It’s already landed with “Mostly Positive” reviews on Steam with 709 reviews, and I’ll likely pick this one up myself to try it out. However, if you don’t feel like parting with £19.99 just yet, there is a free demo on Steam too. To try it out now, head on over to Steam.

Console players aren’t left out either, with the game hitting both PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S today too. The spin-off to 2020’s award-winning Maid of Sker contains everything from the PC Early Access, plus a massive 1.0 update including new objectives, weapons, story content and more.

You can check out the launch trailer and press release below.

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

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.

What Wales Interactive Had to Say

“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.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
