OVERLORD™: FELLOWSHIP OF EVIL PUBLIC INFORMATION FILM TEACHES NETHERGHŪLS THE INTRICACIES OF BEING EVIL
UK – October 12, 2015 – The devious development minions at Codemasters today unearthed the latest video for Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, their digital only, angelically-priced, devilishly fun Action RPG which is coming to PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on October 20. Fans of evil doings can watch the trailer in action now at www.overlordthegame.com.
As the video discusses, while looking suitably terrifying is important to up-and-coming Netherghūls, being truly evil isn’t just about having the biggest sword, or the pointiest shoulder pads. To be truly nefarious, one must consider the killing, the pillaging and many other important aspects, including the “ever popular evisceration and immolation of your colleagues”.
“The Netherghūls in Overlord: Fellowship of Evil are a real bunch of ne’er-do-wells, as you’d expect from an Overlord game,” said Carl Johnson, Chief Design Minion, Codemasters. “They’re as likely to stab each other in the back as they are to work together.”
“Evil is about more than just looks, it’s a way of life,” said Gnarl, Evil Minion Master. “There’s the carnage! And the looting! And the running-away-very-fast-avoiding-horrific-death.”
Overlord: Fellowship of Evil will be available on October 20. Gamers who pre-order the game on the Steam store can grab themselves some exclusive Team Fortress 2 hats for their minions plus ‘Da Big Book of Art’ Digital Artbook and from today Xbox One owners can pre-order the game on the Xbox digital store with a 10% discount.
Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is a dark and twisted Action RPG filled with the series’ signature black humor. Penned by award-winning original Overlord scriptwriter 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.
Assisting gamers once again are 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 invites players to dive into an Action RPG where it’s good to be bad, but it’s GREAT to be evil.
Overlord: Fellowship of Evil invades digital stores on consoles and Steam for Windows PC on October 20. Follow the Codemasters minions’ progress towards world domination on the Codemasters Blog and on social media on Twitter and Facebook.
