Leamington Spa, UK – 14th June, 2022. Leading UK games publisher Kwalee and three-person developer Damage State are thrilled to announce that their action-packed FPS Scathe will launch on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on 31st August, 2022. The console versions will follow in early 2023.
Today, Kwalee and Damage State have released a new blood-soaked gameplay trailer showcasing Scathe’s Dark Magic powers and how they can be used in the battle against the evil lurking deep in the pits of hell. Scour the underworld for ancient relics and harness the dark powers of the Fallen Mages. Charge up your arcane energy by crushing your enemies and channel it into potent spells. Heal yourself, summon aid, and wreak havoc on the legions of Hell.
Scathe is an adrenaline fueled, classic FPS with big guns and even bigger demons. You play as Scathe, Enforcer of the legions of Hell, forged from the earth by the Divine Creator themself. And you, like your fallen kin before you, must prove your worth by navigating a deviously crafted maze, entangled with demonic evil at every twist and turn. So, grab your Hellhammer, lock’n’load and get ready to unleash your almighty fury!
- ESCAPE THE MAZE – Your task is simple; collect the three Hellstones and get to the centre of the maze. Choose your own path by navigating expertly handcrafted zones – each filled with danger around every corner. Collect runes the need to progress, and smite all that stand in your way.
- BULLET HELL – Scathe is not your ordinary FPS… Get ready for bullet-hell where you must dodge countless waves of deadly projectiles. By utilising Scathe’s incredible speed, you can dash through attacks, leaving you unharmed. Keeping on the move is the key to survival.
- LOCK’N’LOAD – Rip through your enemies with Scathe’s insanely powerful arsenal of weapons, each equipped with a devastating secondary fire. Spew hellfire with the Hot Hatch or slice through endless evil with the buzz saw launcher, Bow Blade.
- DROP IN/DROP OUT ONLINE MULTIPLAYER – Scathe will support full crossplay online multiplayer where players can drop-in and drop-out at any time. Already lost deep within the labyrinth? Call upon up to three friends to join the fight. Choose your kin wisely, because in Scathe, everyone shares the same pool of lives.
Scathe is scheduled to release for PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on 31st August, 2022. Consoles will follow in early 2023. Fans can wishlist the game on Steam now.
