Overlord: Fellowship of Evil Announced for PS4, Xbox One & PC

April 23, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Developed and published by Codemasters, with Rhianna Pratchett returning as the writer, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2015 as a $19.99 digital title.

Featuring up to four player co-op – locally or online – Fellowship of Evil sees the last true Overlord deceased, placing you in the shoes of one of four Netherghuls. Undead servants of the dark arts, they are determined to bring evil back to a world overrun by good.

Here’s the description for Overlord: Fellowship of Evil:

Step into the warped fantasy world of Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, the dark and twisted Action RPG filled with the series’ signature black humour. Penned by award-winning original Overlord scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil delivers an epic new quest featuring four Netherghuls – 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 collect loot and develop their characters as they embark on a procedurally-generated adventure in single-player or with up to three friends in local and online single-screen co-op. Filled with fun combat and twisted fantasy tales, 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 is the only series that actively encourages players to have fun being the embodiment of evil, destroying all that is good in a subversive, comedic manner. Fellowship of Evil captures this essence and adds in four-way, chaotic co-op play where gamers can even turn on each other in their quest to become the ultimate anti-hero. Evil always finds a way…sometimes it just needs a bit of a nudge.

Features:

  • Series Signature Dark, Mischievous Humor – Kick a minion for pretending to be Gandalf! Destroy a troll couple who have been making minion soup in the Overlord’s helmet! Rhianna Pratchett returns with a twisted and hilarious tale of evil, chaos, Minions and the burning desire to destroy all things good!
  • Develop Your Minion Champions! They’re Back! – Our cruel critters return. Call upon your Minions in battle and build them into mighty champions to do your destructive bidding. “For the Master!”
  • Invade. Smite. Loot! – Work your way through the Netherworld and unleash hell on the world above! Trample the weak under your evil size 10s with fun and satisfying combat, combining unique abilities and melee attacks to dominate all who stand before you! Share loot or steal the spoils- how far are you willing to go on your quest to be the ultimate anti-hero?
  • Four Times the Players, Four Times the Fun! – Evil has a new face. Well, four faces, actually. But who wears the evilist? Er, eviler? You decide! Pick from any of four distinct Netherghul characters, each with unique abilities. Play as a team, or screw each other over – evil never plays by the rules!

Codemasters Executive Producer Rob Elser added:

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.

Are you excited for Overlord: Fellowship of Evil?
