Exorder gets a release date on Switch and an impending price drop on Steam

As the Switch release of Exorder approaches, Fat Dog Games has announced a price drop for the Steam edition.

Exorder is a turn-based strategy game from Solid9 that is headed to Nintendo Switch on September 27, 2018. It will cost $12.99 USD when it arrives, and the Steam version will drop $2 from its current price ($14.99) to match it.

In Exorder, you play as the heroic Princess Beyla, who takes a personal interest in protecting the people of her kingdom. There are "more than 10 battle units" (so... 11?) to choose from, each with "distinct" and "quirky" skills.

From the sound of things, the game offers only a brief single-player campaign where you defend the kingdom of Cerulean from a malicious prince named Tristan. Once you learn the ropes, you can head online and participate in battles with as many as three other players, or even compete more locally if you can gather a few like-minded chums for some friendly competition. Crossplay is also supported, which is increasingly common but still nice to see.



One nice thing about Exorder is that it adopts a brighter and more cheerful aesthetic, with a sense of humor, and yet it sounds like it will offer depth for players who stick with it long enough to master its intricacies.

"This is a love song to the classic games in the turn-based tactics genre," explained Darek Skrzypkowski, CEO at Fat Dog Games. "Exorder is a brilliant and welcoming tribute to that scene with its vibrant colors, quirky humor and intuitive mechanics made even better when played with friends."

Exorder features English language support, with Polish subtitles available. That might seem like an odd choice for language, but keep in mind the game's publisher is based in Poland and it makes a bit more sense. It's also good news, of course, if you happen to live in that region.
