Sci-Fi sandbox game TerraTech is coming to Switch

TerraTech will be released on the Nintendo Switch eShop in May.

TerraTech, the sci-fi sandbox adventure game from Payload Studios, will be released on Nintendo Switch later this month.

TerraTech is a bright, bold game that mixes vehicle creation, open world exploration, and combat to create an engaging, if occasionally grindy, experience.

Developer Payload Studios has announced it will be released via the Nintendo eShop on May 29, 2019.


TerraTech comes to Nintendo Switch following a period in Steam Early Access, and a full release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 last summer. The Switch version includes the Campaign, Creative, and Gauntlet single-player game modes.

Russ Clarke, founder of Payload Studios, says:

“Even before the success of TerraTech on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, we knew that the Switch would be a great platform for the game and we’re excited to bring the game to Nintendo fans everywhere. The inherent creativity and colourful nature of the game make it a perfect fit and I’m happy that so many people will be able to continue building even when they’ve left their living room.”

It’s a cliché to say that “game X is a perfect fit for the Switch” but TerraTech really is. The game’s vibrant visuals should ensure it looks the part, and its creation tool set – if handled well – will make creating vehicles in handheld mode a delightful pastime.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
