While Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get the game day one as part of the service, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch fans will have to pay a retail price to experience the action-strategy game. Fortunately, Switch players still have time to grab the deluxe version of the game at a reduced cost, as it's just $44 at Super Shop with GameSpot's exclusive promo code GAMESPOTMCFT.
