The 8-bit Studios team are developing a "MOV" multiplayer online versus game free-to-play for PC's, next-gen consoles, smartphones and tablets. Similar to versus games out on the market-think Tekken or Street Fighter-our combat system is based on the skills and reflexes of each player, utilizing a system of combos. However, the action is in third person and may include up to 16 players at a time! All combat will be live action, online in battle arenas where the way players handle their characters will be the key to their success!
In Skara, we do not let characters improve by levels, making them effectively invincible. In other words, a novice player has the same chance of killing a veteran player, just like in versus fighting games. The only difference is marked by the reflexes and experience of each player in battle.

FATALITY! Celean Style

Skara's developers love their fatalities. So that's why it is extra exciting to see some new ones come out for the Celea, the spear-bearing Sons of Fire, who are currently playable on Steam Early Access.

See them in action!

... and don´t miss our Twitch Stream today at 6pm CET. We´ll talk about the new content to be released next Monday.


On November 17th the latest version of Skara will become available.

Here is the list with almost all the changes you will see in a little over one week:

· Brand New Menu and User Interface
· BOTS (Finally you will have someone to fight with if there are no matches to join.)
· New HUD (including User ID and new HUD design.)
· New VFX (including Blood and new impact effects.)
· Tweaks to the Combat System
· New Coliseum mechanics
· Bug Fixing (but there will be new ones for you to hunt!)

Moreover, we are preparing the Build 0.4.2 to be released on December 1st (exactly two weeks after).

This new build will also include:

· Fatalities
· New armors
· New spears and shields
· A cinematic intro to the Lava Coliseum
· Further enhancements to the menu

An MMO where you actually need skill instead of Character levels? Might be the first MMO after Ultima Online i am going to play!

Hmm, not the first. There are others out there, like Vindictus. Sadly apart from the towns, there's only Instance Dungeons and Raids (up to 24 people).
This game looks good and I'd love to see more Action-MMORPG's, I really fancy an open world though.

Well we are not an MMO, 16 players is not that massively that's why we like to call us a MOV (multiplayer online versus) game!
