Ripstone Games has just announced its brand new IP Poker Club, and it's coming to Switch.
Designed as a social experience, Poker Club will connect players around the world via tournaments for over 200 people. You'll be able to create your own poker club, complete via online leaderboards and work towards shared goals as a club that unlock cool rewards.
Poker Club will also boast cross-platform and cross-generation play – as well as hitting Switch, the game is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Here's some more info:
Poker Club offers players more ways to play than ever before with a full house of Texas Hold’em online tournament modes and ring-games. Players are invited to take on the challenge of the PCC Poker Tour, an immersive online career mode that takes players on a journey from back-room games to big-money main events. From Single-Table and Multi-Table tournaments, to Freezeouts, Shootouts, Turbos, Super Turbos, Bounties and more, Poker Club offers a variety of online multiplayer modes featuring customisable private games, open tables and full-scale tournaments. With an advanced Poker 101 tutorial system featuring advice for beginners and advanced players alike, Poker Club offers a jackpot of poker fun for all.
Built using Unreal Engine 4 – which will offer ray tracing on next-gen systems – Poker Club aims to be "the most immersive and social poker simulation ever on next-generation and current platforms" when it launches later this year.
Phil Gaskell of Ripstone Games had this to say:
Poker Club is going to be the ultimate poker experience when it launches this year. Not only will it fully leverage the power of next-gen PC and console technology, but more importantly it will offer players a highly immersive social experience. We’ve included everything we’ve ever wanted to see in a poker game, so that players can enjoy the fantasy of living the life of a poker pro, touring the incredible locations you might see in TV and films. The in-game Clubs and huge range of events combine to create a refreshing new poker experience, bringing players from around the world together and offering more ways to play than ever before on PC and console.
