After six years of of hibernation, Codemasters revealed Overlord: Fellowship of Evil set to invade PC, PS4 and Xbox One later this year.

Boasting a script penned by the original’s award-winning scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil features a brand new, darkly comic quest to embark upon.

With the last true Overlord deceased, gamers will now take the role of one of four Netherghūls. These brand new, suitably nefarious additions to the series are undead servants of the dark arts, determined to bring evil back to a world overrun by the forces of good.

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil takes gamers back into the series’ charmingly twisted world, resurrecting its unique blend of subversive humor, fun combat, twisted fantasy tales and destruction. Fans will be pleased to hear that the Minions are led by their wise master Gnarl, voiced once again by beloved voice actor Marc Silk.

“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!”

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil invades digital console stores and Steam for PC in 2015 for £14.99 / $19.99 / €19.99.
