If you've just come out of Resident Evil Village and are already looking for the next game filled with spooks, then the previously released Maid of Sker is getting a free Xbox Series X|S update on May 26.
Xbox Series X players can take advantage of 4K visuals at 30FPS with the Fidelity Mode, or 1440p to embrace 60FPS in its Performance Mode. Alternatively, Xbox Series S can play the game at 1080p with 60FPS. Both will also boast quicker loading times, getting you back into the horror faster than ever before.
But that's not all! The update also brings new Challenge Modes. These new variations will see players being able to fight back against the entities with an assortment of weapons, but the creatures will also pack more power with unique abilities. The four modes pose different rules and objectives, giving you tons of incentive to revisit the game way after the credits have rolled. Oh, and there's ten new achievements to attempt to unlock.
Here’s a breakdown of the new content and features available on consoles:
- Game modes: The Long Night, Axe of Kindness, Nightmare at the Hotel, In Darkness.
- Weapons: Felling axe, .357 Magnum, sawn-off double-barrelled shotgun, bolt-action infantry rifle.
- Enemies: Six enemies patrolling Sker Hotel, some new, some familiar, all with unique powerful abilities.
- Achievements: 10 new Achievements/Trophies added.
Maid of Sker wasn't the most amazing game when it first launched, but it definitely borrowed inspiration from games such as Resident Evil. The new modes sound like they could be a lot of fun, making the moment to moment gameplay more exciting. We're interested to see how it plays out when it launches next week
