What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Sker Ritual will release in Early Access as the first online coop multiplayer in the Wales Interactive collection and we look to collaborate with our audience to create the highest quality title for the 1.0 launch. Players can reach out to our team on the forum, on socials or in the dedicated Discord server.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to leave Early Access in Q1 2023.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We aim to release at least four maps and include a brand new reward progression system with new unique in-game items to collect.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Sker Ritual is currently in Beta and features one of four maps. Cursed Lands of Lavernock is the first map and is highly polished, optimised and content complete. Every Chapter will release with a new map, in a playable state but not 100% content complete. Every Chapter will also release with a new reward progression line.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. The current pricing during Early Access is not final and will likely change. We will release more details during Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will collaborate closely with our community, primarily in the Discord server which we recommend anyone who wants to be involved in the Early Access to join. We will be hosting competitions, giveaways, developer drop-in games, feedback sessions and more. Join here: https://discord.gg/Pb2uFYRB7P”

EARLY ACCESS ROADMAP

About This Game

The Quiet Ones are back in this round-based survival FPS and spin-off to the award-winning British horror game, Maid of Sker! Face hordes of new and familiar enemies, supercharged elites with unique supernatural powers, upgradeable steam-punk weapons, interchangeable spine-chilling masks and mysterious story objectives from writing talent behind Maid of Sker, Battlefield 1 and Total War: Rome II.

TEAM TACTICS OR SHOOT SOLO?

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. You could always find-a-friend over on the official Sker Ritual Discord.

SKER ENEMIES

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.

IT'S A MIRACLE

Killing enemies offer a chance to drop powerful Miracles. Look out for these, you’ll need them. A Miracle drop offers a choice of three random upgradable powers that buff or alter your shooting, melee, grenade and healing. A fifth slot is reserved for your Ultimate, a chargeable powerful action to save up for those sticky situations. Each Miracle is bound to a Celtic God and come in many forms including rarity, core attributes and power.

MASKS, QUIPS AND MORE

Collect and induce fear on Sker’s inhabitants with interchangeable 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.

THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN

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.
