Friday 20th June/...As Overlord™ Raising Hell, the extra evil edition of Triumph Studios’ twisted fantasy blockbuster, launches across Europe today† for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Codemasters® invites gamers to step inside the despot’s Dark Tower with a new video that showcases the sumptuous evil lair that’s perfect for any aspiring war-monger.

Inside, generously appointed dungeons lead to a treasury with plenty of room for expansion and a state-of-the-art forge, perfect for creating a mighty arsenal to mercilessly crush elves, dwarfs, and peasants. The show-piece master-boudoir benefits from stunning panoramic views across the kingdom, a choice of two live-in mistresses and offers a sultry setting for R&R after a hard day’s tyranny.

Complete with a horde of crazed minions to guard your booty, patrol the grounds and generally arse about, the Dark Tower comes onto the market on today as the definitive residence for today’s loot-rich, time poor Overlord.

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 computer 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.
