MY.GAMES and Allods Team have announced that Skyforge, a free-to-play MMO, is coming to Nintendo Switch this fall.

The game has players taking on the roles of Immortals, powerful god-like beings destined to save the planet Aelion from invasion. You'll be journeying through "wondrous worlds inspired by fantasy and science fiction, with hundreds of hours of exciting gameplay, legendary stories, and thrilling battles to discover."

With Skyforge being a free-to-play title, you won't need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to enjoy online play, and further updates are also planned to become available for free at a later date. On top of this, and for a limited time only, players will be able to receive an exclusive in-game gift pack which will give you a helping hand if you're new to the game.

Here's a little more on the game itself:

Using incredible Immortal powers, players can switch between 18 unlockable classes as they master an intuitive combat system and harness unique, class-specific abilities. Rock out with the Soundweaver's killer riffs, shoot to thrill with the Gunner, and set Aelion ablaze with the Firestarter!

Beyond an epic main story, the fight to defend Aelion will continue in free updates that push the boundaries of Skyforge’s constantly-evolving universe. Invasions, regular seasonal events, invite players around the world to unite online in a fight against invaders from across the stars and their avatars of destruction. Soon after the Switch launch, players can purchase an Invasion Pass to earn Invasion-exclusive rewards from battles, including special in-game cosmetics.

We don't have a specific release date just yet, but expect to see this one popping up on the eShop over the next couple of months.
