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 cooperative-specific gear to support.

Key Features:

  • One to four players online cooperative campaign sprawling across dilapidated temples, volcanic foundries, and ancient shipwrecks.
  • A series of magnificent boss fights against rare and unheard-of colossal deities.
  • More than ten handcrafted and ornate weapons, from javelins and swords to bows and guns, each with their own unique and upgradeable offensive capabilities.
  • Gratuitous, brutal, gold-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.
  • Breathtaking visuals with Ray Tracing support for Nvidia RTX series graphics cards.
