While Nintendo's Wii U might not have had many titles for the FPS enthusiast, the Switch appears to be doing much more to target the shooter fan demographic. Not only have both Doom 2016 and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus both landed on Nintendo's hybrid console, there are a selection of upcoming titles that should satisfy the cravings of the trigger-happy player in all of us. Among those upcoming titles is PolyGod, a first-person shooter that takes more than a little inspiration from the classic FPS titles of PC gaming's past.
PolyGod has a number of good things going for it: firstly, its low-poly graphics and colorful visuals lend itself an approachable air, and procedurally-generated levels should help keep the experience fresh through multiple playthroughs. It's a fast-paced game, too, with a low-gravity feel and just the right amount of verticality to satisfy players who like to keep agility on their side. It even has a vast weapon customization system, which should offer plenty of strategic options no matter what obstacles the stage provides. For a better look at how the game plays, check out the trailer featured below.
Don't mistake the colorful action with a lack of challenge, though. In a press release, Krafted Games states that PolyGod features a "brutal difficulty curve" that coincide with its large-scale boss fights and online multiplayer and co-op gameplay modes. From how it sounds, this is the game for players looking for a easy-to-learn, hard-to-master experience.
On top of all these features is arguably PolyGod's best feature: the game is launching next year for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam for just $14.99. We don't exactly know if the title will support cross-platform play, but if it does, this might be one of the better ways for Switch players to keep up with their friends gaming on other consoles.
