ABOUT OVERLORD™ RAISING HELL
The creation of Dutch developer Triumph Studios, the original Overlord™ was a best seller in 2007. Now the deliciously despotic Overlord and his horde of raucous minions returns in Overlord™ Raising Hell, a compendium of tyrannical treats coming June 20th for the PLAYSTATION®3 home entertainment system. The playable demo is now available for download from PLAYSTATION®Network.
- COMMAND MINIONS, CONQUER KINGDOMS:
Set in a seriously twisted fantasy world, Overlord: Raising Hell is an
action adventure that has players being ruthless, determined, and even a
little despotic as they pillage lands and conquer kingdoms in order to be
proclaimed the all-powerful Overlord. At the heart of the game is an army of
slavish little creatures known as Minions, and their presence provides
Overlord Raising Hell with its deliciously dark comedic touches.
GO DEEPER INTO THE WARPED WORLD: Overlord Raising Hell adds a series of additional hellish levels, each a supernatural abyss for the game's five kingdoms. With the undead denizens of each abyss on the attack and threatening the Overlord's superiority, there's only one thing for it: assemble the Minions, descend into each abyss and embark on a fresh wave of tyranny in order to claim the underworld throne.
ENHANCED FOR PLAYSTATION 3 SYSTEM: In addition to offering a complete collection of Overlord content, including online co-operative pillaging and head-to-head slaughter, the PLAYSTATION 3 system edition will also be enhanced with detailed visuals, a top-spec audio system with 7.1 surround sound and gameplay refinements, such as the addition of an on-screen mini-map.
