From Press Release:

Wales Interactive have released new content for Sker Ritual with details on a new Early Access launch schedule just in-time for Halloween via the ‘Meet the Elites’ Gamescom trailer.

A 1-4 PLAYER ROUND-BASED CO-OP EXPERIENCE
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
Customise 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.

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 SUPER CHARGER for bonus buffs and visible steam-punk inspired enhancements.

MIRACLES, OBJECTIVES, MAPS, STORY, 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.
