UK developer Wales Interactive just released a brand new trailer and details on new features for the upcoming co-op survival FPS Sker Ritual. A spiritual successor to the highly acclaimed Maid of Sker, the new title sees players once again facing The Quiet Ones in this 1-4 player co-op, round-based survival shooter.
In the game, you’ll 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 the writing team behind Maid of Sker, Battlefield 1, and Total War: Rome II.
• 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.
• Quiet 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
Customize 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 customization 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 SUPERCHARGER 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 coming to PC via Steam this summer, with a new-gen launch later in the year.
