After being out on consoles and PC for just over a year, Earthfall will finally be landing on the Nintendo Switch along with its alien hordes. Here’s what you need to know.
Newly formed studio, Nimble, has officially announced that they will be bringing Earthfall to the Nintendo Switch this October. The newly announced version will be called Earthfall: Alien Horde, and will feature several changes from its predecessor, including all-new local wireless 4-player co-op, online multiplayer, and brand-new content to the Nintendo eShop version of the game.
The Nintendo Switch version is set to launch on Oct. 11, 2019. The Switch version will include a gigantic amount of content in such a tiny bundle including 11 campaign chapters, and a total of 5 invasion maps. The game, as before, will feature procedurally generated enemies, ensuring that not a single encounter will ever play out the same.
“Bringing Earthfall: Alien Horde to the Nintendo Switch made perfect sense to us,” said Russell Williams of Nimble. “The ability to play with your friends anywhere — online or with local wireless play — is really going to be a fun and unique feature that works extremely well with our 4-player co-operative FPS. Switch is a great console and Earthfall: Alien Horde is great on Switch. We hope everyone has fun taking on the apocalyptic horde of aliens and their overlords.”
For those longing for a Left 4 Dead experience on the Switch no longer have to wait as Earthfall: Alien Horde will arrive here in a short few weeks and will feature all previously released content from its console siblings. Those looking to play it on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One can do so today via their respective stores or by purchasing a copy at their local retailers.
