Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game
The Killer Klowns IP is coming back at us all hard with the announcement of Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game
I am going to have to admit, out of Gamescom this year the last thing I was expecting to see announced would be Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game, yet here we are. The classic 80s film is getting a whole new video game treatment from Teravision Games and Good Shepherd Entertainment for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Not only to keep the Killer Klowns IP alive, but also to give us all a new way to look at the universe they all come from while getting down and dirty with our friends out there. Given that it is a live-service title, we should all know that Crescent Cove is going to be a much louder town than we all knew it to be before.
While it might sound a bit goofy for those that do not know the Killer Klowns IP, and it totally is, it is a story about an alien invasion where the aliens just happen to look and act as the clowns humanity knows. In the game, we will get to take control of three of the Klowns out there while seven other survivors will be out there trying to save humanity from the absurdity. Yes, Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game will be a 3v7 asymmetrical multiplayer game out there for the IP. All with the PvPvE gameplay that we could have hoped for along with all of this too. There is still much to know about the gameplay and how matches will function, but for now, we have a trailer that hints at some of the things we will get to do in the game. Even if it feels like all of the different Klowns will have a different playstyle along the way.
Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game — Reveal
Video game publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and leading entertainment studio MGM have revealed an ambitious and unexpected entry into the multiplayer horror genre: Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game, a new 3v7 asymmetrical online multiplayer game inspired by MGM’s 1988 cult horror classic film. When murderous alien Klowns come to feed on the quiet town of Crescent Cove, the locals must work together to fight back and survive the invasion. Players can team up as either Klowns or humans, choosing from a variety of character classes, to explore an expansive, ever-changing map with creepy surprises waiting around every corner.
Developed by Teravision Games, this playfully panic-inducing action experience faithfully recreates the atmosphere of the iconic movie and aims to stir up the asymmetrical multiplayer horror genre in multiple ways. The game is being developed as a live-service title, with multiple content updates planned for post-launch, and is expected to release in early 2023 on Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Led by visionary game designer and Friday The 13th: The Game Executive Director Randy Greenback, Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game is blood-pumping asymmetrical multiplayer horror, boasting a uniquely campy sense of humor and nightmarish unpredictability that keeps the gameplay fresh and exciting with each session.
