SEATTLE – Dec 14, 2020 | Skul: The Hero Slayer, the hit indie roguelite being published by NEOWIZ and developed by SouthPAW Games, just announced that the 1.0 version will be released on January 21st.

Since starting Early Access on Steam in February, Skul has amassed over 7k reviews with an overall rating of 93%. The game has also seen frequent updates during that time, but the 1.0 patch will be the biggest addition by far.

“We’re really looking forward to sharing this update with our community and seeing how they like the new content,” said Sang Woo Park, CEO of SouthPAW Games. “It’s been a couple of months since our last update, but we think the wait will be worth it. The 1.0 patch will be pretty massive and completely transform the game.”

While SouthPAW Games will continue to update and expand on the PC version for the foreseeable future, they’re also planning to release Skul for PS4, Xbox One and the Switch in early 2021. Skul is available now on Steam Early Access and will be 20% off at launch.
