  • Early access to the game before the Free-to-Play release
  • Founder Uniform
  • Vigor Baseball Cap
  • Gesture "Dust-off Hands"
  • Crowns (in-game currency, valued at $40)

This is a time-limited pack, although we're not sure how long it will be available for. The full free-to-play release will come later this year.

Switch players will be able to join the Outlands, the game's post-war Norway setting, and will be jumping into Season 4: Warlords. This season adds a new 5-on-5 mode called Elimination, as well as new cosmetics, weapons, and tools (including a Mortar Strike and Jammer).

Vigor joins a growing list of free-to-play shooters on Switch, which also includes Fortnite, Warframe, Paladins, and the upcoming port of Apex Legends.
