GameMill | 17th October, 2023: – Skull Island: Rise of Kong launches today on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Based on the series of novels featuring Skull Island developed by creator Joe DeVito and based on Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong, this exhilarating, third-person action-adventure game lets you become Kong on a journey of vengeance as you fight to claim your rightful place as King of Skull Island.
Take on an action-packed quest to avenge the death of Kong’s parents at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator: the saurian terror Gaw. Traverse the mysterious island and uncover its secrets across a variety of treacherous environments, discovering the power coursing through its exotic flora and fauna. Conquer waves of primal beasts, defeat unique bosses, and rise above all who stand in Kong’s way to being King!
Explore the Origins of the King: Start your journey as the orphaned Kong and experience his evolution to the 30-foot King of Skull Island as you hunt for revenge against Gaw.
Unleash the Fury of Kong: Deal devastating combos to dominate Gaw’s ferocious minions, and unleash your rage to heighten the impact of your attacks. Send even the most gargantuan of enemies fleeing with your earth-shattering roar and brutal finishing attacks.
Ascend to New Heights: Gain new abilities through special events and intense boss fights to unlock Kong’s full potential.
Discover the Mythos of Skull Island: Explore cel-shaded environments including mountainous terrain, jungles, swamps, skullite-filled caves and more to unearth collectibles, unlock new areas, and learn more about the mysterious history of this faraway land.
Skull Island: Rise of Kong is available now for £34.99. Fans can also purchase the digital deluxe Colossal Edition for £39.99. This edition includes eight exclusive film grains featuring the ability to experience a red-tinted rage mode and the original look that harkens back to the classic Kong of Merian C.
