Crush Your Enemies Brings Barbaric RTS To Switch

One genre that seems to have stepped out of the spotlight in recent years is real-time strategy (RTS) games. They used to be insanely popular in the ’90s with games like WarCraft, Command & Conquer and Dune II. Sure, there have been others since then, but the genre seems to gravitate toward PCs instead of consoles. That’s why it’s always nice to see a game in that genre come to the Switch – providing it’s a good one. While we don’t know that to be the case for Crush Your Enemies just yet, we’re hopeful.

Crush Your Enemies is coming soon – very soon in fact! August 2 is the launch date and it will have you collecting resources, capturing enemy territory, and taking down your foes. The graphics look a bit simplistic and the maps might be a tad small, but this should encourage fast matches. Check out the launch trailer from a couple years ago on the PC, iOS, and Android to get a better feel for what to expect when it comes to Switch in a couple of weeks.
