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.

Experience PERISH, a stylish and immersive 1-4 player FPS game brought to you by ITEM42 and HandyGames.

In this roguelike horde shooter, you find yourself in Purgatory, a desolate wasteland infested with dismal creatures. Your goal is to slay thousands of lost souls to earn safe passage to Elysium, the final resting ground of the Worthy.

Engage in gripping combat as you wield an arsenal of over 10 handcrafted weapons, each with its own unique offensive capabilities. Face off against colossal deities from ancient Greek mythology in intense boss fights. With a co-op campaign supporting online play, team up with friends to explore dilapidated temples, volcanic foundries, and ancient shipwrecks.

As you progress through Purgatory, the challenges and rewards increase. Balancing risk and reward is crucial, as dying will reset your progress and cause you to lose all the gold you've earned. However, by banking your gold in the Pantheon, you can purchase persistent upgrades to face the increasingly difficult challenges ahead.

Developed by ITEM42, a studio with a history of creating visceral FPS experiences, PERISH is a passion project by two brothers. Immerse yourself in its rich gameplay and captivating story, brought to life with Unreal Engine 4. Published by HandyGames, a subsidiary of THQ Nordic, PERISH offers post-launch support with free updates, introducing new enemies and weapons.

Join the community and embark on a journey through the Dread Realms, inspired by ancient Greek, Roman, and Christian mythologies. Will you find redemption or eternal oblivion? Get ready to face your demons when PERISH releases on February 2, 2023, available on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store. Play alone or team up with friends in this thrilling FPS adventure!
