If you were hoping to pick up Earthfall: Alien Horde from the Nintendo Switch eShop today, you’ll have to put those plans on hold for just a little bit longer. The squad shooter’s release date has been pushed back until 29th October (so ignore the date in the trailer above).
Originally set to launch on Nintendo’s platform today, the game is a revitalisation of co-op FPS Earthfall which you might be familiar with from other consoles. Switch is getting the entire original game with all of its updates thrown in for good measure; the local wireless four-player mode is actually exclusive to the console, too.
If you missed it the first time around, here’s the game’s feature list:
A Horde of Content — 15 unique locations, including 11 campaign chapters, 5 invasion maps, and tons of unlockable items!
Hardcore Co-op — Drop in, drop out and engage in classic four-player co-operative gunplay inspired by the greatest co-op shooters of our time. Now with local wireless co-op, in addition to online play.
Death from Above — Fight the horde, a procedurally generated alien menace that makes every gameplay session tense, exciting, fresh, and utterly lethal.
Well-armed Allies — Become one of four story-driven characters and battle through an alien-infested plot while utilizing advanced weaponry and printable guns.
Constructible Defenses – Strategically place barricades that electrify or set the alien scourge afire. Deploy automatic sentries to create the perfect alien killing zones or set up mounted turrets to achieve firepower superiority.
When the game does appear on the eShop on the 29th, you’ll be able to grab it for £17.99 / €19.99.
