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.

Maid of Sker

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.

Here are just some of the things to expect in Maid of Sker:

  • 3D sound-based AI system as the core survival mechanic.
  • A chilling story inspired by Welsh folklore fusing psychological, gothic and British horror.
  • Realistic visuals featuring 4k uncapped on PC and enhancements on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
  • Re-imagining of famous Welsh hymns Calon Lân (A Pure Heart), Suo-Gân (Welsh Lullaby) and Ar Hyd Y Nos (All Through the Night) from the spine-chilling voice of Tia Kalmaru.

Maid of Sker is out in June 2020 for the PS4 and Xbox One, with a later release on the Nintendo Switch in October 2020.
