Survival horror Maid of Sker launches this summer

Wales Interactive has announced their plans to release their new terrifying first-person survival horror to Xbox One, Maid of Sker this June.

Maid of Sker is steeped in rich Welsh folklore, throwing players to 1898 where they’ll navigate through the notoriously macabre Hotel Sker. The game will force players to use their time wisely as they navigate the halls and grounds employing no-weapon survival tactics, and relying on your ability to keep quiet to stay breathing.

The game is brought to life through a collaboration of the folks at Wales Interactive and the teams behind Don’t Knock Twice and SOMA mixed with inspiration of the folk story of Elisabeth Williams; the tragic tale of a Welsh woman in the 1800’s losing her life after her father locks her away in her room to die of heartbreak.

Maid of Sker brings a story of a family empire driven by a supernatural mystery that suffocates the grounds of the hotel. Tia Kalmaru is also lending her voice to the game to recreate Welsh hymns in theme with Maid of Sker’s terrifying tone.

The game will also feature 4K uncapped for Xbox One X.

Managing Director David Banner stated:

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!
