Wales Interactive’s co-op FPS, Sker Ritual, gets a new trailer

Back in the summer of 2020, Wales Interactive released what would go on to be an award winning survival horror game. One they called Maid of Sker.

Since the success of that new IP, the folks behind it have been working on a successor of sorts. However,  it’s not a direct sequel. Instead, this project — which has been dubbed Sker Ritual — will take the form of a co-operative and round-based survival shooter. It will also support up to four players, whereas the original was strictly single player.

Its key features include:

1-4 Player Round-Based Co-op Experienced: Designed for playing solo, or up-to 4-players online. Short of a teammate? No worries, the intensity of Sker Island’s hordes scale to the number of players.

Quite Ones, Elites and Bosses: The Quiet Ones have returned and they are not alone. Sker Island has recruited new elites, each with a unique set of abilities that will force you to change-up your playstyle, change your location, or enlist the help of your teammates! Old enemies aren’t the only ones to curse the lands of Sker, we have many more new faces — even some without faces — that want to destroy you.

Masks, Voice Taunts and More: Customise your character with interchangeable in-game masks inspired by all forms of horror; folk, gothic, zombie, science fiction to the supernatural and more. Taunt your teammates with unique voice lines and switch out your dynamic menu scene environments from the Island. More customisation to be revealed soon!

Upgradeable Steampunk Weapon System: Get your guns, ammo, and more at The Laughing Policeman’s booth at locations around the maps. Buy stock munitions or gamble on a randomly picked weapon with a chance of gaining a higher base level. Climb the weapon ranks with unique upgrades courtesy of The Laughing Policeman’s SUPER CHARGER for bonus buffs and visible steampunk inspired enhancements.

Miracles, Objectives, Story, Maps,
Revive System and More Coming Soon:’Miracles’ will form part of a unique perk system that will play an important role in Sker Ritual. Please stay tuned for the reveal coming soon.

Sker Ritual is targeting a summer 2022 release on Steam, before making its way to next-gen consoles later this year.
