Blast Your Way out of Bullet Hell in Scathe – The New Action-Packed FPS Coming Soon to Xbox Series X|S

Hi everyone! We are thrilled to be able to share the news of an exciting new project we’ve been working on here at Kwalee. We’ve teamed up with Damage State, the talented three-person dev team based in Scotland, to publish their gore-filled new bullet hell first person shooter Scathe.

We’ll be publishing Scathe for Xbox Series X|S later in 2022 and we’re excited to finally be able to share the first official announcement trailer along with some hot-off-the-press game news with you right here.


Scathe is an intense, classic FPS with big guns and even bigger demons. You play as Scathe, Enforcer of the legions of Hell, forged from the earth by the Divine Creator themself. 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 Hellhammer and get ready to unleash your almighty fury!

Quick reflexes are the key to survive the bullet hell labyrinth that stands between you and your ascension. Rip through the underworld’s deadliest demons and collect the hellstones in the brutal single player campaign or drag your friends into gore filled action in intense drop-in/drop-out online co-op gameplay.


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 will take all your skill as well as Scathe’s insanely powerful arsenal of weapons to escape the deadly maze and survive the relentless attacks from the enemies hellbent on destroying you at every turn!
