Thursday, 24th April 2008 (2pm UK Time)– With a trailer fit for a tyrant, Codemasters® today released a video preview of Overlord: Raising Hell ™, the anarchic action adventure title coming this June exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. The video, mixing CGI and gameplay, is now available to view and download from the game's all-new despotic domain at www.codemasters.com/overlordraisinghell
Marking the Overlord's first appearance on the PLAYSTATION 3 system, Overlord: Raising Hell™ is set in a world of twisted fantasy scenarios, featuring angry dwarves, weird elves and messed up zombies. As the dastardly Overlord, players must master control of the Minions, a raucous horde of impish creatures. Controlling them is crucial if the Overlord is to sweep through the kingdoms, wipe out his foes and conquer the entire land.
Overlord: Raising Hell comes to the PLAYSTATION 3 system with a devilish array of hot new content, including never-before-seen exclusive features and all of the 'Raising Hell' levels, which takes players even deeper into the Overlord's warped world. In these hellish new realms, a supernatural abyss for each of the game's five kingdoms, the undead denizens are 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.
With the addition of online co-operative pillaging, and split-screen 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 feature additions, such as the new on-screen mini-map. Prepare for a hellishly good time being bad with Overlord: Raising Hell , coming this June for the PLAYSTATION®3 system.
