Codemasters on Thursday officially announced Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, the next entry in the UK developer's action-adventure series. The game is in development for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and is due to launch later this year for $20.
The most recent entry in the core Overlord series was Overlord II, released more than six years ago in 2009 for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Fellowship of Evil is shaking things up.
Fellowship of Evil departs from the formula of past Overlord games in that you'll play not as one Overlord, but rather as one of four Netherghūls. These are described as "suitably nefarious" undead servants, who are "determined to bring evil back to a world overrun by the forces of good." How nice of them.
The game supports four-player co-op either locally or online. Another major change is that Fellowship of Evil is played from a top-down perspective, whereas the first two entries in the core series were presented in a third-person view. You can see some Fellowship of Evil gameplay in the video above.
One thing that's staying the same, however, is the voice actor for the minions. British voice actor Marc Silk is returning to voice the dastardly creatures for Fellowship of Evil.
And as suspected, Rhianna Pratchett--who worked on the original two Overlord games--has returned to write for Fellowship of Evil. For more on Fellowship of Evil
