Poker Club Almost Ready to Join
Poker Club from Ripstone Games is coming to the PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X some time this year, possibly on the launch of the new consoles.
No date has been set, but the main news is that Poker Club will launch on the next-gen consoles, but also the current generation consoles Nintendo Switch, Xbox One X and PlayStation 4.
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.
On PlayStation 5, Poker Club will utilise the advanced haptics in the DualSense controller to immerse players on the poker table like never before. The game also offers Cross-Buy between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, and Smart Delivery on Xbox One and Xbox Series X, so players only have to buy Poker Club once to get the game on both generations of consoles.
“Poker Club is going to be the ultimate poker experience when it launches this year. Not only will it fully leverage the power of next-gen PC and console technology, but more importantly it will offer players a highly immersive social experience,” said Phil Gaskell of Ripstone Games. “We’ve included everything we’ve ever wanted to see in a poker game, so that players can enjoy the fantasy of living the life of a poker pro, touring the incredible locations you might see in TV and films. The in-game Clubs and huge range of events combine to create a refreshing new poker experience, bringing players from around the world together and offering more ways to play than ever before on PC and console.”
