The last time Kong officially appeared in a video game was back in 2005 when a title was based on King Kong movie created by Peter Jackson.  The game, which was released for PS2 and Xbox 360, was surprisingly good even if you were playing as a human for most of the time.

This time around you get to play as Kong all the time in Skull Island: Rise of Kong.

Take on an action-packed quest to avenge the death of Kong’s parents at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator: the saurian terror Gaw. Traverse the mysterious island and uncover its secrets across a variety of treacherous environments, discovering 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!

Key Features

  • Explore the Origins of the King: Start your journey as the orphaned Kong and experience his evolution to the King of Skull Island as you hunt for revenge against Gaw.
  • Unleash the Fury of Kong: Deal devastating combos to dominate Gaw’s ferocious minions, and unleash your rage to heighten the impact of your attacks. Send even the most gargantuan of enemies fleeing with your earth-shattering roar and brutal finishing attacks.
  • Ascend to New Heights: Gain new abilities through special events and intense boss fights to unlock Kong’s full potential.
  • Discover the Mythos of Skull Island: Explore mountainous terrain, jungles, swamps, skullite-filled caves and more to unearth collectibles, unlock new areas, and learn more about the mysterious history of this faraway land.

Skull Island: Rise of Kong arrives on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam later this year. You can pre-order the game now with the Standard Edition coming in at £34.99 and the Deluxe Edition will cost £44.99.
