Vigor: Bohemia’s Free-To-Play Shooter Expands To New Platforms [VIDEO]

After the Xbox One debut, other consoles will receive Vigor, too.

According to the developers’ announcement, the Nintendo Switch will be the first to experience some change. The game has been available on the big N’s hybrid, successful platform since July 8 (although as a paid version – you need 20 dollars to get the Founder’s Pack), but Vigor will change to a free-to-play model on September 23. The next in line is possibly going to be the PlayStation 4: Sony’s ageing console will allow us to play Bohemia‘s product (that first debuted on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One in August 2019) from November 25. There’s also a PlayStation 5 port in development, but it’s coming „this Holiday season” – Bohemia doesn’t want to reveal the next-gen Sony console’s release date (we discussed this subject in detail the other day).

„Vigor is a free-to-play shoot ‘n’ loot game where you build the Shelter in post-war Norway. The nuclear war is over. Europe is devastated, Norway has become the last stand. You start as a nameless Outlander, but who will you become? No time for uncertainty. Shoot your way out or don’t fight at all. Loot, gather resources, take risks. Build your Shelter and vital equipment. Humanity has fallen… You shall rise. […] Shoot your way out of encounters for eight to 12 players,” Bohemia’s description of the game’s reads. So it’s not your run-of-the-mill battle royale title with 100 players (which could be 200 in the next console generation, but we might be wrong).

Surprisingly, Bohemia has skipped the PC users – we rarely see console exclusives on the Xbox One altogether nowadays. The Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation 5 will receive the free-to-play title by the end of this year.
