Poker Club is a game that you might overlook, but that would be a mistake. Designed to be a very social game, you can join clubs with your friends and compete with other teams from around the world with online leaderboards. You can even go online to build a successful career in one of seven different locations beginning in the basement of a pizzeria to the lap of luxury in a fancy casino. Playing with other people will be even easier, because it will allow cross-platform play with gamers on the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Xbox.
Despite cards being a very analog game, the tech in Poker Club is impressive. Offering 4K with 60 FPS as a start, ray tracing is confirmed for the PS5. The game is built on the Unreal 4 engine, and it will use the haptics in the DualSense controller for more immersion. It’s also cross-buy, so you can play it on the PS4 and PS5 with one purchase.
With single and multiple table tournaments and with some tournaments allowing 200 players to enter, Poker Club has a lot going for it, especially when real poker tournaments aren’t likely to return soon. If you want to feel the thrill of making a bet or making other players sweat, Poker Club might be a game for the gambler in us all.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
