'The Otterman Empire' (ALL) Gets Release Date - Screens & Trailer

The Otterman Empire is a fast-fire party shooter with jetpack-propelled, airborne action in an otter-this-world blend of collaboration and competition.

Grab a friend or three and take to the skies for co-op and versus modes in this friendship making - or breaking – party game!

Choose your otter, customize your jetpack, add a weapon of spectacular power and leap into an otterly epic local multiplayer blast-fest with rapidly switching objectives and aerial antics, set across a sprawling universe where otters reign supreme. 

The Otterman Empire features intense split-screen multiplayer action, blurring the lines between shooters and party games. Players are propelled by jetpacks, adding a captivating new twist to shoot ‘em up versus gameplay whilst intensifying the frenzied fun tenfold. Each two minute round demands a new objective with its own unique rules and gameplay dynamics. Randomly generated objectives and supply drops keep players on their toes and guarantees that no two games of The Otterman Empire are ever the same.

Compelling single player and co-op progressive campaigns also invite players to work together or to fly solo in the face of evil, as all that stands between deranged scientist, Tiko, and his destruction of the empire. Featuring a huge variety of challenges across an entire galaxy, intense and immersive campaign modes put the fate of the world in the players’ paws!

The Otterman Empire is available to pre-order now on Steam, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch and will be launching on all platforms on July 2nd, 2020.

“Community development and the decision to include split-screen, local multiplayer came hand in hand. Our events, our community, and our development process has always encouraged interaction between players and we wanted to reflect this in our game,” said Tri-Heart Interactive Managing Director, Kieran Rogers. “Bringing back split-screen played a major part in that. We also grew up in a time that split-screen gaming was the only way to play games together, and we all have a fondness for the experiences we got from gaming at the time, we wanted to offer the same to a new generation of players.”

Players on Steam will be able to enjoy online multiplayer action with Steam Remote Play from July 2nd, with console compatibility coming soon.
