'Maid of Sker' (ALL) Release Date Gets Pushed By A Month

by Rainier on May 28, 2020 @ 9:42 a.m. PDT

Maid of Sker is a first-person stealth survival horror, set in a remote hotel with a macabre history from Welsh folklore. Brave the nightmares of the Quiet Men.

When they arrive, do not panic — don’t even breathe.

Based on the haunting true story of Elizabeth Williams, you play as Thomas Evans, a musician who is thrust into a terrifying battle to save the woman he loves. Set in 1898 in and around Sker House, a real dwelling which still stands to this day and is said to be one the most haunted in Britain.

Expect a story of forbidden love within a family empire driven by torture, slavery, piracy and a supernatural mystery that suffocates the grounds of Sker House.

Featuring realistic 4k visuals with gameplay focused on stealth, exploration and no-weapon survival tactics. Experience a multiple thread narrative where your decisions matter, unlocking different story paths and multiple endings.

A 3D sound based AI system is the core survival gameplay mechanic. Hide, run, creep, trap and distract are just some of the basic techniques you need to master to survive enemies with super hearing.

Objects can be picked up and used as traps with various levels of sound. As you progress, enemies become more difficult to avoid, to the point where standing still and holding your breath is the only option!

Time it correctly and you’re safe, for now. Run out of breath and — suffer.

Wales Interactive are announcing that Maid of Sker will now launch in July 2020 for PC (Steam), Xbox One and PS4. 

Richard Pring, Game Director said, “The new date will enable Maid of Sker to launch simultaneously across digital and physical platforms, whilst also allowing for the team to fine-tune the macabre horror in Maid of Sker to its absolute-ly terrifying limits!”
