Nuclear Throne is finally out of Early Access


Officially launched on PC, PS4, and Vita

It feels like Vlambeer’s Nuclear Throne has been in Early Access limbo for ages, but the punishing roguelike shooter has finally reached its official release date. You can now purchase the finished version of Nuclear Throne on PS4, PS Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux for $11.99. It’s also coming soon to PS3.

I played this a lot while it was still in Early Access, and found it to be exceedingly difficult but absolutely addicting. I don’t think I ever even made it past the second area, the sewer with all those pesky rats, but I kept wanting to go back and try again and again. Maybe I’ll finally make it a bit further now that the game is finished.

Someday I will reach the nuclear throne if I just believe in it hard enough, right?
