Earthfall: Alien Horde has received a minor delay on Nintendo Switch and will launch a short while after its initially planned release date. 

Instead of launching on October 11th, 2019, will see itself launch at a slightly later date on October 29th, 2019, for $19.99 via the Nintendo eShop. The four-player co-op title will see itself launch digitally and will be available for pre-order starting on October 21st, 2019 for both European and North American regions.

The announcement Nimble made last month about its release date. The delay, while minor, could mean they needed a bit more time to finish up any pre-launch polishing they needed for the game to better deliver their title. For what it’s worth, there’s nothing wrong with a delay of any sort.

When it launches, players can look forward to the following content as detailed by Nimble themselves:

  • 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 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.

All you need to do now is prepare yourselves, your friends, and your Switch’s for some 4-player local co-op fun and stay up-to-date by checking out the official Earthfall website today. Meanwhile, Earthfall is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One today.
