3 December 2019 – Indie publisher Digerati is happy to officially announce the console release dates for arcade-style arena shooter, Demon Pit. Players will be able to start purging the legions of hellspawn from 17/18 December (NA/EU respectively) on PS4, 24 December on Xbox One, and 25 December on Nintendo Switch.

Inspired by FPS classics of the 1990s, such as Quake, Quake II, Doom, and Blood, Demon Pit tests your reflexes against endless waves of the demon horde in a constantly changing arena. Your goal is a high score on the leaderboard, the price is your soul. Far from God’s light, there is only Hell.

A collaboration between DoomCube and Psychic Software, two developers based in Galway, Republic of Ireland, and with music by composer Thomas O'Boyle, Demon Pit is a throwback to the FPS classics of the 1990s. It combines retro-authentic low poly 3D graphics, with uncompromisingly hardcore skill-based gameplay.

"Creating Demon Pit has been an exercise in balancing speed, challenge, purity and chaos," explains DoomCube's Paul Conway, artist and designer on Demon Pit. "I want players to fight forward, experiencing its unrelenting pace as they progress through waves of enemies and grasp for their place on the leaderboard."

About the game

Arise Demon Hunter. It is time. The years you spent slaughtering demon-kind in the mortal world did little to cleanse your soul. Your sins have been laid bare and you have been judged. You are damned for eternity. The pit awaits!

Inspired by the fast-paced FPS games of the 1990s, Demon Pit is an intense arcade-style arena shooter. Armed with a series of ranged weapons and a soul grapple, you must fight and out maneuver endless waves of demons in a constantly changing environment. How long can you survive before they rip your flesh and claim your soul?

Key features

  • Battle 10 types of hideous hell spawn
  • Repel the demon horde with 7 varied weapons
  • Use your soul grapple to traverse the arena quickly and avoid the oncoming legion
  • Master movement to survive the changing environment and its hazards
  • Constantly kill to keep your multiplier alive and compete for leaderboard immortality
  • Playable in 4K (Xbox One X only)
