Dredge: Release Date, Platform & Game Length


Fishing games are not for everyone, especially those who favour action over a game title that requires endless amounts of patience while staring at a screen, waiting for a fish to reel in.

This fishing game, however, promises more interactivity than others of its type. As you explore a collection of remote isles in your fishing boat, you have to complete quests to learn more about each area’s troubled past, while upgrading your boat’s capabilities to give you the means to reach more secluded locations.

During the game, you will acquire strange new abilities, which will no doubt come in handy when you have to venture into the darkest areas of the game’s world where unseen horrors lie in wait.

Dredge has been described as a blend of fishing simulator and survival horror so if that description floats your boat, you might want to pick up the game on its launch date to set sail on an intriguing Lovecraftian adventure.

What platform is Dredge releasing on?

Dredge, which is from developer Black Salt Games and published by Team 17, will be coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and PC on March 30th 2023.
