Gearbox Publishing has announced that it will bring a number of indie games to retail this holiday season. Three major indie releases will get physical boxed editions throughout North America and Europe. These retail versions will launch in November this year. Let's take a look at the games you'll soon be able to grab from your local retailer.
Risk of Rain 2
According to a Gearbox Publishing press release, Risk of Rain 2 has sold over 1.5 million units digitally since its March 2019 Early Access release (August for consoles). Now, you'll be able to pick the game up on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in physical form. The retail version will set you back $29.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the Switch version costing an extra $10. You can check out TechRaptor's thoughts on Risk of Rain 2 right here.
As a recent winner of five Webby awards, a retail version of Astroneer will be welcome for its many fans. Its mixture of base-building, planetary exploration, and multiplayer impressed our reviewer. Astroneer will launch in retail form on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will retail for $29.99 on both platforms. Like Risk of Rain 2, it launches on November 15th.
World of Warships: Legends Firepower Deluxe Edition
World of Warships: Legends Firepower Deluxe Edition is a boxed content pack for the free-to-play online naval warfare game World of Warships. According to Gearbox Publishing, the boxed game packs in more than $130 worth of in-game content, but it won't cost you that much. This one retails for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will cost $39.99. Not bad if you're into World of Warships.
These three games will join Into The Dead 2, which got a Gearbox Publishing boxed release back in October. That one's only available for the Switch and costs $39.99. Risk of Rain 2, Astroneer, and World of Warships are all also available digitally on their respective platforms.
