GSY Video PS5 Xbox Series X PC PS4 Xbox One

After scaring players on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, Maid of Sker returns with a free update adding graphics modes on Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X|S as well as new game modes featuring firearms. The PS5's DualSense is also supported, but the few added vibrations and the implementation of the adaptative triggers (in the new FPS modes only) are no game changer by any means. Inside, you will find the first 30 minutes of the adventure and a video of one of the new FPS modes. More details about the update can also be found right after the click.
