Maid of Sker Release Date

Horror aficionados Wales Interactive are bring survival horror Maid of Sker to the PS4 and Xbox One this June, with the Switch to follow in October.

With titles such as Don’t Knock Twice and The Bunker, developer Wales Interactive know their horror and continue the theme with their latest, Maid of Sker.

Out in June for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Maid of Sker is a first-person survival horror title set in Hotel Sker, on the southern coast of Wales.

Wales is one of my favourite places on Earth, and I encourage anyone with a feel for nature to visit (I’m neither Welsh or affiliated with Visit Wales).

But do so before you play Maid of Sker, as it’ll scare you off.

I’m a bit of a wuss with these sort of games – the last few titles I played were Blair Witch and Rise of Insanity (though the latter isn’t scary), so there’s a certain expectation of this game.

We’re so excited to be announcing Maid of Sker. For us at Wales Interactive Maid of Sker is a fantastic chance to share some Welsh heritage with the rest of the gaming world and frighten them all at the same time!

Set in 1898 and based on a folk story by Elisabeth Williams, your job is to stay alive without the use of any weapons and relying on your ability to stay quiet.
