Critically Acclaimed Strategy Game OTHERCIDE Will Be Released for Nintendo Switch Next Thursday

French publisher Focus Home Interactive has officially confirmed that the highly anticipated Nintendo Switch version of Lightbulb Crew's Othercide will make its big debut as soon as next Thursday, September 10, 2020.

As a reminder, Othercide was released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One & PC (exclusively via Steam) back in July.

The upcoming Nintendo Switch port of Othercide will contain not only the fan-favourite base game, but also the Dream Mode, which will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC next Thursday as well. According to Lightbulb Crew, said game mode will allow all players to enjoy the game without worrying too much about some of its more challenging features. It will also add two new elements "aimed towards providing a more forgiving experience for inexperienced players, while keeping the overall game feel lethal and impactful."

Considering that Lightbulb Crew's original answer to the X-COM series is currently sitting at a really good 78% score on Metacritic, all fans of turn-based strategy games should definitely give Othercide a fair chance.

To learn more about the Nintendo Switch version of Othercide, take a closer look at its announcement trailer:

Explore a dying timeline and discover the secrets of the City and the Suffering bred within it. Lead, evolve and sacrifice your army of Daughters, echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, in deadly battles against the Others and Suffering across battlefields brought to life by a unique artistic direction.

Othercide is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam); coming to Nintendo Switch on September 10, 2020.
