Bohemia's Shoot-and-Loot Game Vigor Gets 5v5 Competitive Mode in New Season

Fight with your friends

Bohemia Interactive is proud to announce the release of Season 4: Warlords for Vigor. The fourth season brings a brand new 5 vs. 5 game mode called Elimination and adds new facepaints, mementos, tools, weapons, and a reworked comm station.

Season 4: Warlords Features:

New Battle Pass theme
New game mode - Elimination
Armory Cellar
New Tools
Mortar Strike
New Weapons
Bugle F1
Uk vz. 59
New Mementos: Lighters
Comm Station Overhaul

The theme for Season 4 is Warlords. These Outlanders blend in using facepaints, using the Jammer to confuse their enemies and then calling in the deadly mortar strike. These fighters are also the leaders of Elimination, where they wish to see the weak separated from the strong.

What is Vigor? It's an upcoming free-to-play shooter where you build your shelter in post-war Norway. Over 4,500,000 players have jumped into the beautiful (but deadly) Outlands so far.

Vigor's upcoming Switch release gets a new trailer

Give it a vigorous watch

We've already had an open beta for Vigor on Switch, and next up should be the game's release. While we wait for the official release date to come in, the dev team has put together another trailer showcasing what the Switch version will be like. Give it a watch above.

Vigor's "Founder's Pack" launches in Summer 2020 for $20, free version of the game set for later 2020

Pay to play at first, but going free later

Last week’s closed beta for Vigor was a successful test on the Nintendo Switch and Bohemia Interactive is now proud to announce that Vigor will be first available on the platform via the Founder’s Pack this summer. The Switch version of Vigor will then go free-to-play later in 2020.

Based on the Nintendo Switch closed beta, the Vigor team is hard at work on improvements and fixes which came out of the feedback from players. Progress there and the test’s results are why the team is confidently giving early access to Switch players this summer via the Founder’s Pack. The $20 pack includes $40 worth of in-game currency, along with a special outfit, hat, and gesture that which will set them apart from the rush of Outlanders that arrive on Switch later in 2020.

Over 16,000 players played Vigor during the Nintendo Switch closed beta. They captured more than 8,000 airdrops and 252 of them managed to get inexplicably squished by airdrops. The Vigor team at Bohemia sends a huge thanks to every Outlander who participated and provided feedback on Facebook, Discord, and the evaluation form.

Vigor - Xbox One Vs. Switch comparison

Vigor is currently running a closed beta on Switch, which gives us our first look at how the game looks compared to the Xbox One version. There's certainly going to be some more visual tweaks made before the final game launches, but this early look shows us how things have shaped up so far.

Vigor to have cross-play between Xbox One and Switch, players on both platforms can join the same encounters with no restrictions

Xbox One fun

Vigor is currently running a closed beta on Switch until April 16th, 2020. After that, we'll have to wait until later in 2020 to get access to the final version of the game. When that does come around though, we'll be able to have all sorts of looting and shooting fun with our Xbox One friends.

The official FAQ for Vigor confirms that cross-play will be available between the platforms, and players can matchmake together. Check out full details on the cross-play below.

We see great potential in the platform and its community, Outlanders on Xbox and Switch can also easily join in a cross-play session and matchmake into the same Encounters without any restrictions. ...For now, Vigor will be released in a form of Closed Beta for a limited time and only to 32,000 players. But once it gets properly released cross-play will be available with no restrictions.

Vigor Introduces New Game Mode and Additional Silenced Weapons in Season 3, closed Switch beta starts today

Season 3 detailed

The developers behind Vigor have revealed a slew of new content heading to the game as part of Season 3. That content will eventually make its way to the Switch version, but it won't be part of the closed beta, which is kicking off today. Check out full details on the Season 3 content below.

Available today, the Vigor developers are equipping Outlanders with a new arsenal and introducing them to a new conflict in Season 3: Rivals. This new season offers fresh gameplay to the existing Xbox One community, giving them the tools and weapons they’ve been craving, and teases future experiences for the new and curious Outlanders checking out Vigor on the Switch console platform this week.

The biggest addition to Vigor this week is the seasonal game mode called Sawmill Shootout, where players engage in medium-to-close range gunfights in a closed-off subsection of the Sawmill map. Respawns are enabled up until the final minute, where all players fight to be the last Outlander standing. Shootouts offer a Vigor experience focused solely on combat and players do not bring their equipment from their Shelters, so they don’t have to worry about losing gear. Thus, this will be a good place for players to hone their skills so they have a better chance to survive any firefights as they seek loot in Encounters.

When it comes to those Encounters, the arsenal has just expanded. The Vigor community has asked for additional silenced weapons and Bohemia is delivering. Three guns will now have silenced versions so players can stealthily take down their enemies: The PSS, SVU, and MP5-K SD3.

The theme for Season 3 is Rivals. There’s cunning behind the flashy masks of these Outlanders and they wield it dangerously alongside their silenced weapons. They have their eyes set on the Sawmill and they’ll employ the use of new silenced weapons and new consumables to outlast and outlive their enemies.

Season 3: “Rivals” Features:

New Season Mode: Sawmill Shootout

New Battle Pass

New Tools (Consumables)

Iodine - Improves radiation endurance
Caffeine - Stamina boost
New Silenced Weapons


Full Headpieces
Titles in Battle Pass

New Seasonal XP Rewards

Ability to skip and replay the tutorial

Melee weapon stat improvements

Reward screen improvements

Bohemia Interactive also recently revealed that the F2P, multiplayer, shoot-and-loot title is expanding its fresh brand of gameplay to a whole new audience of gamers via the Nintendo Switch™, with the Vigor beta starting this week. The Switch beta will not feature Season 3 content, but will have an experience built to test Vigor and help the developers deliver a stronger launch.
