Merge Games has revealed that action RPG Crimson Keep will be fighting its way to Switch next week, launching for the system on Thursday 29th November.

The game is actually described as a "rogue-like, first-person, action RPG", where players are banished to the dungeons below the destroyed village of Larkstead. You'll need to explore, scavenge, and fight for your own survival, looking out for the mysterious Crimson Keep while escaping your disturbing surroundings. There are all sorts of beasts and other horrors lurking in the murky depths, with a procedurally generated dungeon system in place to ensure fresh adventuring throughout.

You may well be descending into an ever-changing labyrinth full of monsters and traps, but snagging every last bit of XP and loot - and attempting to keep yourself safe from damage - should help you to survive. You can also choose from three character classes - Berserker, Witch and Drifter - with each one featuring a range of weapons that boast different speeds, damage arcs, and ranges. As you level up, you'll also gain new abilities which are useful in different combat situations.

As mentioned above, Crimson Keep releases on Switch on 29th November, but pre-orders actually go live today (22nd). The game is priced at £14.99 / €19.99, but any purchases made between now and 6th December will benefit from a 20% discount.
