Focus Home Interactive and Lightbulb Crew have released another new trailer for the upcoming tactical RPG Othercide, and this video focuses on the Boss encounters. As you may expect the Boss encounters will be the toughest fights in Othercide, and will require all sorts of tactical planning to get through them without losing too many of the Daughters. After all, if a Daughter is killed then you will lose them forever.
Othercide’s plot focuses on a group called The Daughters who carry traits of the greatest warrior to live. This group is tasked with fighting against and push back the Suffering. The Daughters are an army and each will get their own personality as battles occur, but sacrifices may have to be made where a Daughter is lost for the bigger picture. Recently, another video showed the Dynamic Timeline System in action. That is described as:
In Othercide, the unique Dynamic Timeline System is at the core of every battle. Rather than simply controlling where and what your units do, you will also manipulate when things happen. This can be used in many ways, from interrupting an enemy attack before it even occurs, to unleashing a devastating series of combos. Death will inevitably take you. Healing Daughters requires the sacrifice of another, and your forces cannot withstand the onslaught of Suffering forever. However, there is hope: each failed run opens up new game-changing abilities, options and opportunities for the next attempt.
Othercide will be released on July 28th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-orders are live on PC and Xbox One with a 15% discount. A Switch release will be coming at a later date.
