There are a few different versions to consider, although the pricing structure is a bit confusing – here’s how it breaks down…

Firstly, the standard base game will be available on PC, Xbox and Switch for £22 on all platforms except PlayStation, which is selling the game for a slightly cheaper £20. There is also a digital edition that includes the DLC Blackstone Key, which “gives players access to a mysterious workshop on Blackstone Island. It’s available for £31 on PC, £24 on Switch and Xbox and £22 on PS.

The physical edition, on the other hand, costs £30 on Switch or £25 for both consoles, and includes a physical poster, “a meticulously crafted artbook and sticker pack”, a digital soundtrack and “additional gameplay elements to help players begin their seafaring adventures”. Publisher 17’s team says you can pick it up at “participating retailers.”

All pre-orders will receive a “platform exclusive” rod.

Dredge challenges you to unravel the mystery as you dig the depths, learn your craft, and fish for survival as you “battle the unfathomable” with your quick wits and abilities.

Starting March 30, players can look forward to solving mysteries on PC, Switch, and current and last-gen consoles.
