PERISH

Publisher HandyGames and developer ITEM42 announced console portsfor PERISH, their co-op mythology boomer shooter.

The mythology-themed boomer shooter is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5 – though a release date wasn’t announced.

PERISH was originally released back in February 2023 for Windows PC (via SteamGOG, and the Epic Games Store).

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:

There is no way back and only one way forward. Enter blood-soaked underworlds inspired by ancient mythologies, all accompanied by a death-metal soundtrack. Face ceaseless battles on the perilous path to Elysium. Stave off a barbarous fate and slay hordes of infernal creatures on the black sands of Purgatory.

Sell their corpses to a glorious priestess in exchange for increasingly powerful melee weapons and firearms. Overwhelm abominable bosses and use the spoils of war to gain entrance to Elysium, where death and gold await thee.

The same lust for gold that motivates your own craving consumes the revenant creatures within Purgatory. Succumb to these dark souls and be forced to lose precious wealth and begin again. Muster up to three friends and reap the tides of merciless hordes together. Deploy co-op-specific gear to support, defend and revive each other on the perilous path toward eternal oblivion.
