So, during our weekend release roundup we detailed a new Xbox FPS called PERISH that looked pretty darn fun, and well, HandyGames' shooter is officially out now on console after a year or so on Steam.

That Steam release has brought in a 'Mostly Positive' rating so far, so we're keen to see how this indie shooter lands with an Xbox audience. It looks quite slick anyway, as you can see in the recently released gameplay trailer up above.

Of course, it's worth baring in mind that this is a low-budget title and the visuals do reflect that in certain aspects, but when it comes to sheer demon slaying, PERISH looks like it might just deliver. Here's a bit of an introduction to this new Xbox shooter, straight from the dev team:

"PERISH is a stylish 1-4 player FPS with a cross to bear. Slay hordes of creatures on the black sands of Purgatory and sell their gold-stained corpses to craven priests. Kill magnificent bosses and use the proceeds to gain entrance to Elysium, a place of cosmic revelations."

Oh, and here are some of the game's core features as it lands on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S:

  • 1-4 player online co-op campaign sprawling across dilapidated temples, volcanic foundries, and ancient shipwrecks
  • A series of magnificent boss-fights against rare and unexplored colossal deities from ancient Greek mythology
  • More than 10 handcrafted and ornate javelins, swords, bows, and guns each with its own unique and upgradeable offensive capabilities
  • Gratuitous, brutal, blood-soaked ranged and melee combat against enemies with distinctive battle behaviors
  • Morbid gladiators: enemies in PERISH are unforgiving, and as you travel further through Purgatory you will meet a slew of enemies inspired by Ancient Greek, Roman, and Christian mythologies
  • Post-launch support: free updates to the PERISH universe, with strange new enemies and even crazier weapons to play with.
