Overlord: Raising Hell PS3 Fact Sheet
Prepare to be tempted, mesmerized and thrilled! From the development studio that brought the critically acclaimed Overlord to the PC and Xbox360™, Triumph Studios now presents Overlord: Raising Hell, the same groundbreaking action adventure title with extended features designed and developed exclusively for the PlayStationÆ3 computer entertainment system. Set in a seriously warped fantasy world, the game brims with irony, immersing players in twisted parodies of classic fantasy scenarios and characters.
Many years ago in a very dark time, there were seven heroes who, together, saved the land from the despotic tyranny of the evil Overlord and his rule from the Dark Tower. With power now in their collective hands, these once brave fighters of freedom became overly proud, each corrupt in their own way. The tyranny these fallen heroes inflicted on the kingdoms’ inhabitants has many poor peasants wishing for the old Overlord’s return.
Controlling a mysterious figure that has inherited the seriously dark legacy of the evil, long dead Overlord, players begin the game as a mighty powerful character whose roots are firmly planted on the side of evil. To aid you in your quest, players actively control a horde of gremlin-like critters, the Minions.
With incredible power at your disposal and a team of evil-minded minions to do your evil bidding, how will you resist the temptation to be incredibly despotic? The player’s actions will determine if they will rise to become a fearsome new all-powerful Overlord; it’s all down to how much of a bad ass they want to be in order to succeed… be it evil, or really evil.
