If you’re looking for your next cooperate first-person shooter fix, Nimble has you covered. The alien horde assaults of co-op FPS Earthfall are making their way onto the Nintendo Switch on Oct 11.
Announced today by Nimble, Earthfall: Alien Horde is an updated version of the 2018 shooter developed by Holospark. Originally released on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, this new version of the game will contain all of the updates that have been released so far for the original version of Earthfall.
Nintendo Switch players can also look forward to a brand new local wireless mode exclusive to this version, allowing you and up to 3 other friends to pop lead into zombies together wherever you are.
If you’re not familiar with Earthfall, it isn’t too disingenous to call it “Left 4 Dead with aliens.” The game is a character-focused, 4-player co-op FPS, with your various protagonists quibbling with each other as they traverse linear levels and defend against onslaughts of extraterrestrials.
Similar to the zombie action of Call of Duty, you can also strategically deploy barriers armed with traps to fend off the alien menace as you bunker down to fight them off. There are over 15 different maps to experience in the game via 11 campaign chapters and 5 invasion mode maps. There’s also a suite of unlockables, ensuring an extra layer of longevity and replayability.
Earthfall: Alien Horde launches for Switch on Oct 11 for $19.99.
