Skull Island: Rise of Kong arrives on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam today. Based on the series of novels featuring Skull Island developed by creator Joe DeVito and based on Merian C. Cooper’s King Kong, this third-person action-adventure game lets you become Kong on a journey of vengeance as you fight to claim your rightful place as King of Skull Island.
Players will take on a quest to avenge the death of Kong’s parents at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator: the saurian terror Gaw. You must traverse the mysterious island and uncover its secrets across a variety of treacherous environments. As you go, you’ll discover the power coursing through its exotic flora and fauna. Conquer waves of primal beasts, defeat unique bosses, and rise above all who stand in Kong’s way to being King.
Announced earlier this year, Skull Island: Rise of Kong sees players exploring the origins of King Kong. You begin your journey as the orphaned Kong. Exploring the world, you’ll learn new abilities and discover secrets that will ultimately lead you to your revenge.
