The game hits Nintendo Switch and Xbox One first, before launching on PS4 a week later.
While up until now, news on the console launch had been fairly quiet, the game’s publisher Raw Fury has now confirmed that the title will be hitting consoles in just a couple of weeks. Star Renegades is launching first on both the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on November 19, before coming to the PS4 a week later on November 25. The game is confirmed to be coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one, as it did with Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Alongside the announcement, the game also got a new trailer, showcasing its beautiful pixel-art graphics and funky techno music.
Star Renegades sees players assemble a ragtag band of rebels to stop invading forces called The Imperium. Moving across a map, players encounter foes in a “deterministic combat system”. This system allows players to choose when to attack across a timeline at the top of the screen. Earlier hits are likely to be less powerful but have the opportunity to stop the enemies attacks, whereas later hits will likely be more powerful, but are more likely to place the attacker in the line of fire.
Here at DualShockers, we really enjoyed the game, scoring it a 9/10 in our review. We said:
“Star Renegades is, at its core, a tactical rogue-lite RPG that’s laden with well thought out systems, a varied cast and a beautiful world. It’s an addictive foray across a range of planets in which you lead a bunch of misfits into battle against malevolent enemy forces. It’s a thinker’s game; a game where you need meticulous planning and a well considered approach in each battle, and I had a blast with it.”
Star Renegades will be available digitally for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One from November 19 and is available for purchase on PC via Steam right now.
