Video game publisher Good Shepherd Entertainment and leading entertainment studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) have revealed an ambitious and unexpected entry into the multiplayer horror genre: 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.
Developed by Teravision Games, this playfully panic-inducing action experience faithfully recreates the atmosphere of the iconic movie and aims to stir up the asymmetrical multiplayer horror genre in multiple ways. The game is being developed as a live service title, with multiple content updates planned for post-launch, and is expected to release in early 2023 on Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Led by visionary game designer and Friday the 13th: The Game Executive Director Randy Greenback, Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game is a blood-pumping asymmetrical multiplayer horror, boasting a uniquely campy sense of humor and nightmarish unpredictability that keeps the gameplay fresh and exciting with each session. Randy shared his excitement for the upcoming project:
“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. I can’t wait for everyone to see what rockstars they are and the craziness we’re bringing to the genre.”
