Scathe is an adrenaline-fueled, classic FPS with big guns and even bigger demons. 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. So, grab your Hellhammer, lock’n’load and get ready to unleash your almighty fury!
- 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 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. Use Scathe’s incredible speed to dash through danger. 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 cross-play online multiplayer where players can drop-in and drop-out at any time. Already lost deep within the labyrinth? Call up to three friends to join the fight. Choose your kin wisely, because in Scathe, everyone shares the same pool of lives.
Scathe is out now for PC via Steam today and Epic Games Store later this week for £19.99 GBP/€22.99 EUR/$24.99 USD. Consoles will follow in early 2023.
