Wired Productions is bringing Haemimont Games' action RPG Victor Vran: Overkill Edition to Switch, and with it, one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
Victor Vran owes a debt to titles like Diablo and allows you to team up with up to four players online to take down hordes of enemies. You'll be able to customise your character with outfits and weapons along the way, and Switch owners will benefit from the expansions 'Fractured Worlds' and 'Motörhead: Through the Ages', the latter of which is described as "a wild tour through the mythos, music and attitude of the loudest band in the world." The late Ian Fraser Kilmister - better known as Lemmy - is featured, too.
Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions, said:
Victor Vran: Overkill Edition will be the first game of it’s kind to arrive on the Nintendo Switch. A masterpiece both technically and in its gameplay, Haemimont Games’ classic RPG will be a must have addition for Switch owners around the world.
Gabriel Dobrev, CEO at Haemimont Games, added:
Victor Vran has taken us on an incredible journey, from working with Motörhead to seeing so many players love the game as we have has been a real privilege – we’re excited for Victor’s next strides onto the Switch platform.
There's no solid release date outside of "summer", but we do know that the game will launch digitally as well as in physical form, with a suggested retail price of £34.99 / €39.99 / $39.99.
Our pals over at Push Square thought it was pretty decent, giving it 7/10 and saying:
Victor Vran: Overkill Edition doesn't revolutionise the action RPG genre, but it certainly has helped it evolve. The scrapping of class systems and skill trees gives you more control over the character that you want to make, while the hordes of collectable loot will keep you chopping and changing your loadout for a long time. While its story is a little stale and there is still something very conventional about how Haemimont Games' latest is set out, the variety of gameplay and four-player co-op will keep you coming back to Zagoravia for hours.
