Overlord: Fellowship of Evil Announced
Codemasters have today unveiled their new title, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil. It has been six years since the series last appearance on PC and consoles. This installment like the will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this year. The script for this title will be written by Rhianna Pratchett, who also scripted the recent Tomb Raider reboot. The tone of the game is set to be darkly comical.
With the last true Overlord deceased, gamers take up the role of one of four Netherghūls. These brand new, suitably nefarious additions to the series are undead servants of the dark arts, determined to bring evil back to a world overrun by the forces of good. The title will also have four player co-op, both locally and online. in a time when local co-op is becoming rarer and rarer, this is nice to hear.
Assisted by your horde of loveably moronic minions, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil takes gamers back into the series’ charmingly twisted world, resurrecting its unique blend of subversive humour and destruction, and then sprinkling in a large helping of four player co-op chaos to dial the eviling up to evileven. Fans will be pleased to hear that the Minions are led by their wise master Gnarl, voiced once again by beloved voice actor Marc Silk.
“We’ve been scheming about a new Overlord for some time” said Rob Elser, Executive Producer Minion, Codemasters. “We really wanted to do something that would allow us be evil alongside our friends, instead of the normal heroics in every other game. The idea of playing as a team of bad guys commanding Minions to do our utmost bidding, while also causing chaos for each other, just really made us smile. And as you know, an Overlord game never takes itself too seriously.”
“Finally the secret dark rituals have paid off!” said Rhianna Pratchett, Mistress of Scrolls “I’m often asked if there’ll be another Overlord game, so it’s wonderful to be back in black helping to create a new carnage-filled evil ride. This is one game franchise which has been as fun to develop as it is to play, and Fellowship of Evil is no exception. And don’t worry, there will be sheepies. We have plans for them. Oh yes!”
Overlord: Fellowship of Evil will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC at some point this year, the title will be priced at €19.99/£14.99/$19.99.
