Ripstone Games today announced that its brand new IP Poker Club, will retail at £19.99/$24.99/€24.99 across all platforms when it launches on November 19th. Poker Club is available for pre-order now on Xbox platforms, with Smart Delivery meaning players only have to buy Poker Club once to get the game on all Xbox One and Xbox Series platforms. Poker Club will also support free cross-gen purchases for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions. A Nintendo Switch version of Poker Club is planned for 2021.
On PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X Poker Club has been engineered to make the most of next-generation hardware and features. Poker Club boasts 4K visuals at 60fps, with advanced rendering techniques including hardware-accelerated ray tracing across PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Ripstone have prepared a new video that showcases fresh Poker Club gameplay emulating the final visual target for the Xbox Series X hardware. This video takes players through an overview of the game including its features and mechanics. Game Director Phil Gaskell provides commentary and also plays a few hands, showing off the incredible visuals and immersive first-person viewpoint Ripstone are incorporating into Poker Club:
“On consoles we worked with Sony and Microsoft to ensure anyone buying Poker Club for their chosen platform will have access to the game across generations. This was very important to us as the game also supports cross-generation online multiplayer,” said Phil Gaskell of Ripstone Games. “This kind of convenience for our players is really important to us as a developer and publisher, particularly while we transition into a new console generation. Our fans can know that pre-ordering the game now will automatically entitle them to play Poker Club on all Xbox devices from the original Xbox One all the way up to the Xbox Series X. And once the game launches for PlayStation platforms, the same applies and one purchase of Poker Club will provide access to play on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, with no additional charge.”
