Tactical RPG ‘Othercide’ Breaks Down its Unique Combat System in New Trailer

Focus Home Interactive released a new trailer for the Lightbulb Crew-developed tactical RPG, Othercide, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on July 28.

The trailer, titled Fighting Shadows, breaks down the origins and systems fo the tactical RPG battle systems. Players have a host of actions available to them during combat, but careful planning is needed to get through the tougher encounters.

Othercide is a tactical RPG where players will command an army of units called Daughters, who are echoes of the greatest warriors ever to live. Similarly, they will fight against creatures and bosses who are spirits of those who have committed some of the worst crimes.

During gameplay, players will move units and strategically plan to interrupt enemy attacks while setting up a chain of action in a timeline to perform a deadly combo. The game takes players to a gothic-styled world and features roguelite elements such as limited resources and permadeath. There might come a time when you have to decide to sacrifice a Daughter to make another stronger.

In case you missed it, check out our preview of the game after going hands-on with it at PAX East 2020.
