Switch Port Announcement
On top of the above video, the following Switch announcement was made today, March 23, 2020 by Bohemia Interactive, the game’s publisher.
” After a really great period for Vigor, spent exclusively on Xbox, we feel that it’s time to take another step and bring post-war Norway to more courageous Outlanders. This is the first station for Vigor on Nintendo Switch™, so while the Xbox players are awaiting the release of Season 3, Nintendo players will be able to hop into a test version of the game. If you or your friends own the Nintendo Switch™, feel free to sign up for the Closed Beta. We’re excited to hear everyone’s feedback. We believe that new and exciting times begin! “
From their press release, the publisher also makes it clear that cross-play or cross-platform gameplay will be outright available and functional when Vigor effectively releases on Switch: “Players on Xbox and Switch will be able to easily join in a cross-play session, and matchmake into the same Encounters without any restrictions”. Both sides will benefit from faster matchmaking times thanks to the larger player base.
