The team has also announced that while it will release for all three platforms, they’ve also revealed that Aftercharge will also play side-by-side with Xbox One and PC with cross-platform play. You can check out the official statement from Laurent Mercure, Communications Officer at Chainsawesome Games down below.
“Having Aftercharge support cross-play with the three platforms at launch has always been super important for us, so we can’t wait to see the three gaming worlds collide this summer. Aftercharge on the Switch not only makes the game playable on-the-go, but also opens the door to building a more unified gaming community without platform-based borders. And for those gamers who want to get an early look at the game, we’ll be showcasing a playable PC build at PAX East 2018, as well as holding a special Alpha playtest in April. So, stay tuned for more details!”
You can also check out the game’s features and synopsis down below:
In Aftercharge, six glowing structures called extractors are at the center of each match and serve as the objective for both teams — the attacking Workonics droids and the defending Enforcers guards. Choose from a total of eight unique characters, each with their own attacks, defensive abilities, and weapons for a variety of tactical options. Although the objective of the game is simple, Aftercharge’s team-based gameplay relies heavily on strategy and stealth, where every player is vital to obtaining victory!
Aftercharge is set on the distant planet of Dusk 11, exploited by the titular corporation for the energy at its core. Designed originally to avoid industrial espionage, the company’s workonics worker robots are defecting due to the planet’s now unstable energy, which has put the company’s extractors (and all life on the planet) at risk. The Workonics set out to destroy the extractors and must face off against human Enforcers guards who are invulnerable to robot attacks. Luckily for them, the Workonics have invisibility on their side.
Aftercharge Key Features:
- Unique Blend of Fresh Mechanics: An invisible team fighting an invincible team, reviving allies instantly with no limit and zero cooldown on abilities are only a few mechanics that make Aftercharge a shooter you’ve never played before.
- Bite-Size Competitive Matches: The teams are small, the maps are small, the rounds are short, the action is always within sight and it never stops.
- Asymmetrical Characters: Choose from a different character pool on each side with widely different abilities and roles to vary your team’s strategy.
- Online Multiplayer and Matchmaking: Team up with players anywhere around the world and face-off against opponents of similar skill level thanks to Windows PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch cross-platform play.
For those of you attending PAX East in Boston, MA, you can get your hands on the game during the event from April 5, 2018, until April 8, 2018, at booth #15104.
