Scathe Announcement

Are you ready to blast your way out of the bullet hell of Scathe?

Arriving later in 2022 as the debut title from the three person UK development team at Damage State, Scathe will be looking to deliver all the gore you could ever imagine, releasing on Xbox, PC and PlayStation along the way. Today, the leading UK games publisher Kwalee has announced a new publishing deal which will ensure that Scathe gets in front of as many eyes as possible.

Damage State have created Scathe, a blood-soaked, action-packed FPS, and it’ll be launching on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 & 5 and PC through both Steam and the Epic Games Store in 2022. Before that though, you can get your hands as bloody as you so wish, by checking out the free limited-time demo for Scathe in the Steam Next Fest celebration from February 21st-28th.

What are we getting here? Well, Scathe is an intense, classic FPS with big guns and even bigger demons – you know, like DOOM, just DOOMier. 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.

Grabbing your Hellhammer, lock’n’loading and getting ready to unleash your almighty fury is what Scathe will do best and it’ll be up to you to utilise the brute strength and extreme speed inside to purge your way through Hell’s most grotesque abominations, as you search for the Hellstones and defeat the all-powerful Guardians that protect them, deep within the web of punishment before you.

Expect to draw on the quickest of reflexes , as these are the key to surviving the bullet hell labyrinth that stands between you and your ascension. From there, rip through the underworld’s deadliest demons and collect the hellstones in the brutal single player campaign or drag your friends into gore filled action in intense drop-in/drop-out online co-op gameplay.

The key features of Scathe include:

  • 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.

Do you think you’re ready for Scathe? We’ll be sure to let you know once that release date is confirmed for Xbox, PlayStation and PC. For now though, give it a shot via the Steam demo and let us know what you think.
