Horror XCOM lookalike Othercide will be available via Steam on July 28. After scrapping plans for an Early Access version earlier this year and running a closed beta instead, developer Lightbulb Games has opened pre-orders and released a new trailer.
In Othercide, you’re commanding an army of “Daughters”, women who are the “descendants of legendary warriors”. While the monstrous threat remains unnamed, you’re taking the Daughters to battle in order to protect The Mother.
Lightbulb Entertainment also introduced a few of Othercide’s available classes: the Blademaster, wielding a giant sword, looks like a frontline fighter. There’s also a ranged class called Soulslinger and a Shieldbearer used for defense. Combat will be turn-based and will allow players to plan several actions in a row.
You can either purchase the standard version or a bundle with a digital 128-page artbook and the game’s soundtrack, both on Steam.
