‘Scathe’ Is An Upcoming Shooter Guaranteed To Burn

A rather scathing preview.

Shooting demons in an FPS. Is there a more iconic duo? I won’t even bother waiting for you to tell me otherwise, because I know it’s true. And the folks over at dev studio DAMAGE STATE LTD. know it too, as they’re hard at work on a new Hellish shooter called Scathe. It looks a bit like Painkiller with bits of Turok thrown in. It sounds like it may not work, but hear us out:

Scathe will place players inside a labyrinth haunted by denizens of the damned dimension. You’re tasked with retrieving four “hellstones” and making it out alive, but the demons aren’t gonna make it easy for you. Luckily, you’re equipped with some nifty weapons that wouldn’t be out of place in Doom. Shucks, one of the guns is a dead ringer for Doom 2016’s shotgun. It all looks like a ton of fun with some grotesque creeps to shoot down, and best of all, you can bring your mates along for the ride as there will be a co-op option available.

Think it may tickle your fancy? Then be sure to follow the game’s development over at its official Steam page. In the meantime, check out the trailer for it below and sound off in the comments section to let us know what you think.
