Codemasters signs up Overlord for PC, X360

Triumph Studios' dark fantasy game has been picked up by the UK publisher for a 2007 release.


Codemasters has announced that it will be releasing Overlord, developed by the Dutch company that was responsible for the Age of Wonders strategy games, for the PC and Xbox 360 in 2007.

The action adventure game, based within what is claimed to be a "seriously warped fantasy world," puts players in charge of a figure who has inherited the legacy of the previous evil Overlord. Players can decide how evil a route they want to take in becoming the new Overlord, along with the help of Minions--gremlin-like creatures who will carry out every instruction they are given.

Barry Jafrato, senior VP of brand for Codemasters, said: "Overlord comes loaded with innovative and compelling game mechanics wrapped in a scenario that's played out with plenty of black humour. We're delighted to be working with Triumph on the title, bringing something fresh and original to next-generation gamers."
