'Sker Ritual' Reveals More Game Details - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 9, 2022 @ 1:46 p.m. PDT

Spiritual successor to occult horror game Maid of Sker, Sker Ritual is a co-op survival FPS where you play solo or with 3 other 4 players to survive the supernatural onslaught of the Quiet Ones.

Sker Ritual is a co-op wave shooter first and foremost but it will feature in-game challenges, tasks, and some soon-to-be-revealed events, which will reward you with story content (as well as unlockable content). The choice is yours, play solo if you're brave enough or grab up to 4 players to tackle the onslaught of Quiet men together.

Set shortly after the events of Maid of Sker, Sker Ritual takes place in the early-1900s with a little more of a steampunk influence. There is action, adventure, survival horror, mystery, and a little gothic science fiction. Sker Hotel has moved on a little since you last saw it, it's now in the 20th Century and has a few surprises still to come.

The Quiet Ones have returned, only now they seem a little more... undead. Maid of Sker fans might also recognise a new and improved Blazeslinger, Banshee, Mariner and Phantom. These juggernauts are tough to take down and each have 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, there will be more new faces — even some without faces.


Check out the new trailer featuring the teleporting Banshee, the lethal Mariner, the invisible Phantom, and the Maid of Sker fan favourite boss Abraham.

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.

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.

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.

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 steam-punk inspired enhancements.

'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 coming to PC (Steam) in Q2 2022, followed by PS5/Xbox Series X|S versions at a later time.
