Codemasters have today officially announced Overlord: Fellowship of Evil.
Overlord: Fellowship of Evil comes 6 years after the last adventure and will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC later this year. It comes boasting a devilishly good script written by the original’s award-winning scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett andgives players a brand new, darkly comic quest to embark upon. Players will take on the role of one of four Nethergh?ls. 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.
Players will also be able to play the game with three of their friends, either online or via local play. It takes players 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. Rob Elser, Executive Producer Minion, Codemasters stated:
We’ve been scheming about a new Overlord for some time. 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.
