Eeeeevil returns as Codemasters announces new Overlord game

Time to get evil with Overlord: Fellowship of Evil.

Well, it’s been quite a while Overlord, so nice to see you again. Bringing back that evil magic is Codemasters, who’s made the game official as of today.

Led by Master Gnarl, played by Marc Silk once again, the Minions have raised not one, but a whole team of evil Overlords. This time around, your evil squad of doom will be spreading evil across the countryside an action/RPG style as a unified force… well, kind of. Evil doesn’t really get along with anyone you know. Even evil.

“We’ve been scheming about a new Overlord for some time” said Rob Elser, Executive Producer Minion, Codemasters. “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.”

“Finally the secret dark rituals have paid off!” said Rhianna Pratchett, Mistress of Scrolls “I’m often asked if there’ll be another Overlord game, so it’s wonderful to be back in black helping to create a new carnage-filled evil ride. This is one game franchise which has been as fun to develop as it is to play, and Fellowship of Evil is no exception. And don’t worry, there will be sheepies. We have plans for them. Oh yes!”

The new game in the series will be available as a download only for $19.99 USD, and will be appearing on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC via Steam. No release date just yet, but it’ll be great to be evil once again some time this year.
