We knew it was just a matter of time, and that time is now. Today Codemasters have revealed that Overlord: Fellowship of Evil will indeed be coming to Xbox One this year. *Commence happy dance*
Overlord does things differently, which if you are familiar with the franchise you’ll know very well. No more being cast as the hero, who’s morales and permanent sense of self-righteousness sickens you to the stomach. Oh no, in Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, (thank the dark Gods) you’ll be taking up the role of one of four Netherghuls and setting out to bring back evil to a word overrun by goodness and all things sweet and fluffy.
Boasting a devilishly good script written by the original’s award-winning scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil gives players a brand new, darkly comic quest to embark upon. Fans of evil doings can watch the first trailer in action below;
But where’s the fun in smiting fools alone? Join the Fellowship, grab three of your most devious friends – locally or online – and gleefully unleash a wave of delightful destruction across the land. For the Master! I can already see this going down extremely well with our very own Rich and Dave. I always thought they had some sinister, evil traits about them! Especially as you can turn on your fellow players. As The Master would tell us, evil never plays by the rules!
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.
said Rob Elser, Executive Producer Minion, Codemasters.
So my fellow evil and dark gamers around the world, get ready for Overlord: Fellowship of Evil coming to Xbox One, PC and other platforms later in 2015. We’ll keep you updated on further news and announcements as we approach the launch.
