Vigor Is Coming To PS5/PS4 This Year, And Going Free-To-Play On Switch

The online shooter is coming to Sony's systems later this year, and you'll be able to play the Switch version without a Founder's Pack.


Vigor is coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 later this year. The online shooter, which launched on Switch earlier this year, will also go free-to-play on Nintendo's platform--right now, you can only play with a $20 Founder's Pack purchase.

IGN has revealed, as part of their Gamescom 2020 coverage, that the game will come to the PS4 on November 25, and over the holiday period for PS5 (the system's release date has not been announced yet). For Switch players, you'll be able to play the game without a purchase from September 23.

Vigor is a multiplayer online loot-shooter set in a post-apocalyptic Norway, in which players have to team up to stay alive and overcome the challenges of the environment.

Now Playing: Vigor – Official Release Gameplay Trailer

The Switch version released alongside Season 4 of the game; that will have likely ended by the time the PlayStation version of the game drops.

Back in 2018, Vigor was an Xbox console exclusive, and the developer explained that this was the case because Sony does not offer a Game Preview option.

Other free-to-play games coming to PS5 include Astro's Playroom, Fortnite, Destiny 2, and Warframe.
