Giebelstadt, Germany / Brighton, UK – Dec. 6, 2022

PERISH, the classical mythology-inspired first-person co-op shooter from developer ITEM42and publisher HandyGames, pushes forward to Elysium on Thursday, February 2, 2023 for PC on Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG.

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 battleson the perilous path to Elysium. Face 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 co-op-specific gear to support, defend and revive each other on the perilous path toward eternal oblivion.

“Combining classical mythology and FPS, with multiplayer and roguelike elements forced us to push a lot of boundaries during PERISH development," said Regan Ware, Co-Founder, ITEM42. "While we are saddened it will no longer be released on Google Stadia, players will be able to access our game from an amazing store lineup including Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG."


PERISH will be available for $19.99/€19.99 on Thursday, February 2, 2023, for PC on Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG. For more information, follow @ITEM42 and @Handy_Games on Twitter, join fellow souls on their way to Elysium on Discord, and check out the official PERISH website.
