The Scathe: A Bullet Hell developers don’t deny that you’ll have to dodge a significant amount of bullets to stay alive.
Damage State and publisher Kwalee announced that the cross-gen, intense, classic first-person shooter with big guns and even bigger demons would launch later this year. Here’s what Scathe’s Steam page says: “You have one job—escape the labyrinth of Hell. Scathe is an intense, classic first-person shooter with big guns and even bigger demons. You are Scathe, Enforcer of the Legions of Hell, forged from the earth by the Divine Creator Himself. 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 Hell Hammer and get ready to unleash your almighty fury!
Use Scathe’s brute strength and extreme speed 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. It’s time to blast your way out of bullet Hell. Your task is simple; collect the Hellstones and escape the maze. Choose your path by navigating expertly handcrafted zones – each filled with danger around every corner. Collect runes, uncover secrets, and smite all that stand in your way. Scathe is no ordinary first-person shooter…
Take on relentless bullet Hell-fueled combat, with deadly projectiles and countless demons at every turn. Utilize Scathe’s incredible speed to smash through your enemies and incoming fire. 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 Bow Blade. 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 upon up to three friends to join the fight. But choose your kin wisely because, in Scathe, everyone shares the same pool of lives.”
Scathe will launch this year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
