Posted on January 6, 2018 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
We found out a few months ago that Immortal Redneck, a first-person shooter set in Egypt with rogue-lite elements, had been rated for Switch in Taiwan. It was a strong sign that the game would eventually end up on the console.
Confirmation has now come in, and Immoral Redneck will indeed be coming to Switch. It will be out sometime in Q1 2018.
For those who missed our original coverage, we’ve included an overview of Immortal Redneck below, plus a trailer.
Immortal Redneck is an FPS set in Egypt with rogue-lite elements. The game mixes old-school first-person shooter action with rogue-lite mechanics. Frantic gameplay, twitch controls and an arcade-style feel meet randomly generated dungeons, a complete skill tree, permanent death and 9 classes with different traits.
The game revolves around a redneck tourist who wakes up mummified in ancient Egypt after an accident. Why is he here? How did he survive the accident? And why the hell is he mummified?!
The answer lies within the three danger-filled pyramids of Giza, all protected by an army of monsters and huge bosses. Obviously, your mission is to get inside the pyramids, kill all the enemies and discover what’s going on!
