Skull Island: Rise of Kong is a new action-adventure game starring King Kong, and it will hit PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC later this year.
More specifically, Skull Island: Rise of Kong will come to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC sometime this fall, according to publisher GameMill Entertainment. The game is being developed by IguanaBee and is a third-person action-adventure game set on Kong’s home turf, Skull Island. As the name implies, you control Kong (presumably before he becomes King) to take out dinosaurs, massive snakes, and other creatures vying for the top spot on the island.
Check out the first look of Skull Island: Rise of Kong for yourself in the reveal trailer below:
Gematsu has more details on the game, including that it will cost $39.99 for the standard edition, whereas a digital deluxe “Colossal Edition” will cost $49.99 and comes with eight exclusive film grains to change the visual presentation of the game, eight different color schemes for Kong, a boss-rush mode, a behind-the-scenes pack with artwork and an orchestral soundtrack, and more.
In Skull Island: Rise of Kong, players control Kong on a “quest to avenge the death of Kong’s parents at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator: the saurian terror Gaw,” according to GameMill Entertainment. You must fight against waves of primal beasts, unique bosses, and anything else in Kong’s way.
There is no release date for Skull Island: Rise of Kong, but it hits PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC this fall.
Here’s hoping the achievements in the game are as bountiful as those in 2005’s Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game Of The Movie, which is infamous for its easy-to-obtain 1000 Gamerscore on Xbox. You can watch us play the game in our King Kong Replay here. It seems that Kong is on the rise in games with an appearance in Call of Duty Warzone last year, featuring his frienemy Godzilla too. Here’s hoping Skull Island: Rise of Kong is just the start of a new wave of monster-bashing games.
