Dredge: Pre-Orders Announced Alongside Demo on Switch

Darkness is Falling 

It’s time to test the waters. But be warned, there’s a mystery afoot and it haunts the whole chain of islands where you make your living. Today Team17 and Black Salt Games are excited to announce that pre-orders are now available for their upcoming fishing adventure, Dredge. Releasing on March 30th, the game invites players to adventure through an eerie fishing adventure fraught with danger. Alongside the announcement of the pre-order, the game is also receiving a free demo for the Nintendo Switch. 


Dredge invites players to step into the boots of a fisherman. Importantly, players need to try to make a living as best they can, navigating the eerie archipelago. Of course, there are lots of ways to do this. Collect treasure and catch fish all to sell at the various towns you arrive at. Each settlement is full of strange characters who you can talk to, sell your wares, and more. Additionally, the settlements in Dredge provide players with a way to purchase new equipment as well as upgrades for their ship. And you are going to need them. Once night falls, the archipelago becomes much more dangerous. Staying out on the water after dark may turn you into the hunted. 

Players are able to view a new pre-order trailer. The trailer gives you a look at the gameplay and art style of the game. Check it out below. 

Dredge is released on March 30th, 2023. Pre-orders are currently ready for purchase, costing $21.99. It will be available on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox consoles. So, will you set foot in these waters?
