Gothic tactical RPG Othercide will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on July 28, and for Switch this summer, publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Lightbulb Crew announced. Pre-orders are available now for Xbox One via the Microsoft Store and PC via Steam at a 15 percent-off discount price.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Descend into Humanity’s last hope. The Daughters, echoes of the greatest warrior to ever live, are all who stand before Suffering and death.
Lead your army of Daughters to battle with all the skill you can muster. Your prowess in combat will decide their fate, shape their abilities and personality. Make the toughest decision and sacrifice one to heal another—survivors will get stronger, ready to fight the next battle.
Combat is an intricate dance of spectacular actions and counters: plan ahead of time and set up impressive chains of abilities to outsmart the enemy. Fight in epic boss battles against the sources of Suffering—dread creatures pulled from the worst of Humanity’s crimes against itself.
You will fight. You will fail. You will rise again.
