Vigor Crosses the Million-Player Threshold

Bohemia Interactive took a chance with Vigor, a third person shooter with loot elements they keep calling a ‘shoot-and-loot title’ because ‘shlooter’ just wouldn’t catch on, and it appears to have paid off with over a million players jumping into post-war Norway since launch.
If you haven’t given the game a shot, it’s a free-to-play third-person shooter where you compete for resources against other players, looking to escape back to your shelter with your precious cargo so you can improve it. It’s tense but fun, and well worth a look.
Here’s the press release:


More Than One Million Players Join Vigor, Bohemia Interactive’s New Shoot-and-Loot Title!

August 27, 2019 – Exactly one week after its Full Release during Gamescom, Vigor reached another pivotal milestone. Over 1,200,000 Outlanders have joined beautiful, but dangerous, servers for Bohemia Interactive‘s new shoot-and-loot game set in post-war Norway. The developers expect that the player base will continue to grow in the upcoming weeks which means plenty of online matchmaking opportunities for player and their friends.
Vigor was released on Monday, August 19th during the Inside Xbox Show at Gamescom and the subsequent show in Cologne was a very successful one! The development team met many players, press, and influencers, many who stood in line for hours to get their hands on the new gameplay.
To celebrate Vigor‘s Full Release success, Bohemia has made a brand new trailer which summarizes the new content added to Vigor in its 1.0 Free-to-Play Release. Check it out:
