First-Person Roguelike 'Barony' Coming to Switch on August 1, features Cross-Play Co-op

Switch owners will finally get to enjoy this distinctive and challenging co-op game.

Barony is a first-person dungeon-crawler roguelike from Turning Wheel. It launched on Steam all the way back in 2016 and has evolved through numerous updates over the years. Despite the game's appealing Minecraft-like art style and deep RPG mechanics, it has never been available on consoles. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter, Barony is finally heading to the Nintendo Switch next month. Like the PC version, the Switch game will feature 4-player split-screen and online co-op, plus cross-play with the PC!

Barony features:

  • Put your skills to the test with perma-death, cryptic dungeons, and no handholding
  • Play cooperatively with up to 3 friends via split-screen, wireless play between Switch consoles, and the internet
  • Master 13 classes ranging from familiar warrior, wizard, and rogue classes to unique sexton, joker, and arcanist classes
  • Conquer or be killed by surprises around every corner in a new dungeon every time you play
  • Invest in deep RPG systems with loads of loot and stats to analyze and synergize
  • Discover and utilize tons of adventuring weapons, equipment, lore, spells, & legendary artifacts
  • Experience ongoing free updates from an active team that loves the game and is active in the Barony community
  • Go deeper with 2 DLCs offering alternate ways to play with new character classes and monster races which offer even more ways to play

That's a good list of features - especially the cross-play co-op and split-screen!

Barony sells for $14.99 on Steam and Epic, and is also available in a 4-pack for $49.99 on Steam. The Switch version will be priced at $19.99 but can be preordered for $14.99. It launches on Tuesday, August 1.
