Vigor Beta available to all Xbox Insiders

If you are part of the Xbox One Insider program then the beta for Bohemia Interactive’s new survival game ‘Vigor’ is available for you to download through the Insider App on your Xbox One. Vigor takes place in Scandinavia, and players take on the role of an outlander, engaging in unique encounters, seeking shelter, gaining resources, and building up in experience to be able to fight off other players.

Bohemia Interactive are known for their previous titles Arma and DayZ, and Vigor looks like an iteration of these titles. It is an Xbox One exclusive game, powered by Unreal Engine 4. Vigor is hide-and-seek with guns where you take risks to progress in a brutal and unforgiving world. As an Outlander in post-war Norway, you have to improve a dilapidated shelter and turn it into a home – a haven amidst a fallen civilization. This requires you to head out into a number of map-based encounters for 8-16 players to scavenge for supplies and gather resources.

 

Bohemia Interactive announce Vigor on Inside Xbox

Creators of Day-Z, Bohemia Interactive, have had an exclusive title announced on the Inside Xbox show, titled Vigor. Set in Norway, it’s a survival game very similar to Day-Z, and will be released in the summer of 2018, so very soon!

The developers were quite insistent that it is not a Battle Royale game, as you can survive by running and hiding, and avoiding any enemy encounter. Weapons can be crafted at your home base by using blueprints, which need to be found in the world, and all of your resources can be lost if you do fail in an encounter with another player.

Another game on the way to get really excited about!
