Othercide update adds new mission type and reconfigured maps

Othercide, the dark and twisted tactical RPG from Lightbulb Crew and Focus Home Interactive, gets a major update today on PC, these features coming in December to consoles. The game has already enjoyed acclaim from press and players alike since its release on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. After the addition of the eagerly-awaited Dream mode a few weeks ago, today’s newest type of mission, Penance, will now show up during campaigns, while changes to the map system bring even more variety and replay-ability.

A new mission type and changes to map rules ensure diverse missions
Penance is a brand new type of mission that forces a balanced offensive and defensive playstyle. In it, swarms of enemies approach and will inevitably attack your daughters. However, rather than blindly fighting their way out of it, each daughter must slay a specific number of foes to fill their Penance gauge and leave the battlefield. Be sure to not have one of your Daughters killing too many enemies, or your remaining Daughters will have to fight alone to reach Penance! Meanwhile, the changes to which maps can appear should keep each mission feeling varied and interesting throughout a campaign, adding even more replay-ability.Othercide is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
