Sker Ritual Roadmap, Release Date & Content Updates Announced

All The Content On Launch

Episode One; the very first map 'Cursed Lands of Lavernock' is near completion. The map will feature all objectives, trials and a boss fight with the only major feature missing being some of our top secret Easter Eggs.

Sker Pass; a completely free cosmetic reward system with absolutely no premium pass option, just like they used to make 'em. The Sker Pass will launch with 50 free items (including masks, animated menu backgrounds, player icons, menu music, weapon charms and more) and each Episode update will offer 25 new items to unlock.

Discounted Full Game; we asked our community [including Discord members] how much they would pay for the game after having played the Alpha demo and the results were more than we were expecting. As we would like to encourage more people to play the game we decided that for Early Access, Sker Ritual will launch with a base price of $14.99 / £11.39 / €12,49 (early adopters keep an eye out in October) which will be raised for the 1.0 launch.

Additional DLC; optional bundles of themed cosmetic items will be available to purchase on the Steam store for $3.99 / £2.89 / €3.29. These are purely cosmetic to show off in-game.

Languages; the initial launch will feature English only however, we are already working on the localisation for several other languages which we will implement as soon as possible. Want your language in the game? Get in touch with the development team! So much more! So you want to know more? Well it just so happens our dev team are lurking in the official Discord server. If you need even more specifics, just ask.

What You Get in Each Episode Update

Each Episode will be a new map update with the added bonus of some Sker story (with some voice acting) that follows on from the events of Maid of Sker. There's been some confusion in the community about whether the game will feature a separate Story Mode and to answer that, it will not. Sker Ritual is a round-based co-op FPS and is not a replacement for a [hypothetical] Maid of Sker 2. Each Episode will add tons of new content including new maps, Elites, Bosses, objectives, trials, easter eggs and weapons. Plus you'll get major gameplay updates on the Miracles system, an in-game communication system and so much more. Our update schedule is as follows: October: The Cursed Lands of Lavernock December: The Ashes of Sker Hotel February: Sewers of the Dead April: Deadly Lover's Fortress

That's it for now! If you haven't seen it already, we have a competition on the go to win game keys on launch as well as a Limited Edition Sker Ritual Plushie toy (Maid of Sker fans will recognise who it is!) Just head over to the Official Sker Ritual Discord for details on how to enter.
