What an unexpected surprise from Gamescom Show tonight. The return to The Chiodos Brothers’ major classic, Killer Klowns From Outer Space is being made into a game from the team behind Friday the 13th: The Game.
It looks like the team who plays as the Klowns will be tasked with zapping their enemy humans into giant cotton candy and bloody glopola to store on their spaceship tent.
The Killer Klowns From Outer Space The Game description goes like this:
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.
It’s a total bucket list item to get to work on the next chapter of such an iconic horror IP like Killer Klowns, especially getting the chance to partner with the original creators of the film and pair them with an incredibly talented development team like Teravision. Friday the 13th: The Game Executive Director Randy Greenback said “I can’t wait for everyone to see what rockstars they are and the craziness we’re bringing to the genre.”
The game’s major features go like this:
SEND IN THE KLOWNS: Take on a role of the iconic Killer Klowns – cooperate in a team of three players, utilize outlandish abilities, hunt humans with zany weapons, and plan your own alien invasion to harvest the citizens of Crescent Cove.
PROTECT HUMANITY: Fight back as a team of seven brave citizens of Crescent Cove – pick your class, explore the city for valuable loot and weapons, avoid getting captured by Klowns, and try to survive – or sabotage – the alien invasion.
WELCOME TO THE TOWN: Crescent Cove is a sprawling arena for unique 3v7 fights between Klowns and humans – boasting various locations, randomly generated map layout and a multitude of tactical opportunities for both teams.
EVOLVING THE HORROR: Unique approach to hide-and-seek gameplay, customization and respawn systems, PvPvE, dynamic objectives leading to multiple match results – Killer Klowns evolves the online horror formula in new ways.
Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game is coming to Steam, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One in early 2023.
