In Othercide, you are humanity’s last hope. Leading your army into treacherous combat, along with immensely powerful attacks and counters, you will face some “fearsome bosses in epic battles”.
From Focus Home Interactive, Othercide will be shown at PAX East from 02/27 – 03/01 where you can try it out for yourself. But first, take a look at the trailer and see for yourself some impressive yet dark and ominous visuals in Othercide.
From the official Focus Home Interactive YouTube channel Othercide is described as- well, you can read their words on it:
Lead the army of reality against the Others, terrifying forces from beyond known dimensions, in Othercide, the new tactical RPG from Lightbulb Crew and Focus Home Interactive.
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. Get just a taste of this incredible new universe in the Reveal Trailer.
You will fight. You will fall. You will rise again.
Combat is an intricate dance of spectacular actions and counters: using the Dynamic Timeline System, plan ahead of time and set up impressive chains of abilities to outsmart and out damage the enemy. Fight in epic boss battles against the sources of Suffering – dread creatures pulled from the worst of Humanity’s crimes against itself. Each world-shattering boss bring their own twist to a tale told through fleeting memories solidifying to a full, tragic narrative about the Mother and how this dreaded reality came to pass.
Your prowess in combat will decide the fate of your Daughters, shape their abilities and personality. Cowardice will be punished, barely surviving will leave scars, and particularly efficient dispatching of the creatures sent against you will be rewarded, permanently affecting their stats. Memories, obtained from re-enacting the actions of their progenitor, change and improve each skill through customization, making your army truly your own. Inevitably, you’ll need to make the toughest decision and sacrifice one of your Daughters to heal another – survivors will get stronger, ready to fight the next battle.
Othercide comes to major platforms this Summer on PS4, XBO, and PC this year. You can add Othercide to your Steam Wishlist now.
