Codemasters has officially revealed the next part in the Overlord series, called Overlord: Fellowship of Evil. Overlord: Fellowship of Evil will be a co-op top-down RPG. In order to give players an idea of what they can expect, Codemasters has released two new videos for this new Overlord game that can be viewed below.
Rob Elser, Executive Producer Minion at Codemasters, said:
“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.”
Rhianna Pratchett, Mistress of Scrolls added:
“Finally the secret dark rituals have paid off!. 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!”
Codemasters’ Carl Johnson concluded that Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is not Overlord 3 as the game does not focus on its single player campaign. Instead, this is the result of Codemasters’ wish to try something a little bit different with the multiplayer and the co-op of Overlord.
