Codemasters have today unleashed the latest trailer for Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, their digital only, angelically-priced, devilishly fun Action RPG which is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC soon, a whole host of new screenshots were also released.
Whilst eviling alone is fun, the second in their series of training videos from The Minionstry of Information also teaches Netherghūls-in-training the value of working together. Bringing a friend (or at least someone you can tolerate for a while) along to help with the carnage can really help lift the levels of nefarious nastiness. But in Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, your friends can also be your biggest enemies. Co-operation becomes “co-opetition” as Netherghūls compete to be more evil throughout the game and traps offer opportunities for mischief.
“Whilst you are welcome to indulge in some solo mayhem and destruction, sometimes you need a friend to back you up” said Gnarl, evil Minion Master “and when I say friend, I mean enemy who hasn’t killed you yet.”
Carl Johnson, Chief Design Minion for Codemasters had the following to say,
“Fellowship of Evil has been designed to be equally fun playing solo or with your friends in co-op. Whether you’re at your happiest causing chaos alone with a horde of minions at your heels or together with some equally evil companions, there’s always plenty of deviousness to be done. Remember, evil never plays by the rules!”
Overlord Fellowship of Evil is a dark and twisted RPG brimming with the hit series’ signature black humour. With a story scripted by original Overlord writer Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord Fellowship of Evil delivers an epic new quest featuring four Netherghūls – undead servants of the dark arts, resurrected in the absence of a true Overlord, to bring evil back to a world overrun by the forces of good.
Aiding gamers once again is the mighty, maniacal and occasionally moronic minions, ready to unleash their charmingly chaotic brand of destruction and led by Gnarl, their wise old master, voiced, as before, by actor Marc Silk. Players will embark on a brand new Overlord adventure filled with fun combat and twisted fantasy tales in single-player or with up to three friends in local and online single-screen co-op.
Overlord: Fellowship of Evil invades digital stores on consoles and Steam for Windows PC in 2015.
