Overview of Sker Ritual
Developed by Wales Interactive, Sker Ritual is a survival shooter that looks beautiful yet spooky, and the intense gameplay does look appealing to play, judging by the trailers. If you’re finding it too hard to survive on your own, you can always team up with your friends and survive the hell together with a maximum of 4 players online. The game also features numerous abilities and weapons that often let players adapt to the situation and change tactics on the go. This game reminded me a lot of DOOM and Lust from Beyond and shares many similarities in terms of level design, aesthetics, and horror vibes.
As you progress through the game and kill enemies, they’ll often drop miracles that can be used to upgrade your power and come in many forms and each of them has its uniqueness. You can upgrade your weapons at Laughing Policeman’s Booth at locations around the maps, you can also enhance your weapons ranks by applying upgrades for bonus buffs and enhancements.
Release Date of the game?
The game looks promising and has all the horror elements with co-op that makes it worth experiencing. Sadly Wales Interactive hasn’t confirmed the release date of Sker Ritual yet. Based on the game’s Steam page, it is arriving in Summer 2022, which isn’t that far. We’ll keep updating this article once we get the official release date from the developer’s end.
Is it coming to Nintendo Switch?
While we do understand the hype Sker Ritual has for those who’ve played Maid of Sker, sadly it won’t be coming to Nintendo Switch as the hardware will have problems running it on stable framerates. Given the complexity of the levels, and mechanics of the game, devs will have to cut features to fit it into the Switch, which isn’t ideal for them and not worth the risk. If on the off chance that it does gets released, we’ll keep you updated as soon as possible.
