Sker Ritual Demo Available Now on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC

Sker Ritual Episode 4

Sker Ritual, a co-op wave-based shooter spun off from the single-player horror title Maid of Sker, has been available on PC via Early Access for some time now. In fact, it’s been entertaining brave gamers with its multiplayer-focused antics and grotesque enemies since October 2022, and in that time it’s garnered mostly positive reviews. Soon it will be leaving early access, however, and also finding itself on consoles. To celebrate, a demo has just been made available.

Designed for 1-4 players, Sker Ritual is for those who like working with others to overcome great odds. It’s also a little reminiscent of Zombies mode in Call of Duty if you’re a fan of that.

Dropped onto one of its fiendish maps, it’s up to you to survive numerous waves of troublesome enemies, all the while completing objectives and trying to find weapons and other useful items that will help you along the way. It’s hectic, it’s fun, and also a little bit scary at times. That’s why we like it.

Check out the official story trailer for Sker Ritual below:

Planned to leave early access in April, Sker Ritual will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S as well as PC, but you don’t need to wait until then to give it a try. A demo is available right now on consoles and PC, allowing those interested in the title to give it a try and see if it’s for them.

Of course, those trying the PC version can then jump in via early access if they wish, while console gamers will have to wait for the full launch.
