Gun Interactive’s upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre game is well on its way. The new game based on the film by the same name, is from the makers of Friday the 13th The Game. It will allow you to play as Leatherface and his cannibalistic family. In addition to that radness, Gun Interactive has come up with all-new Sawyer family members to play as that have been crated just for the game. But no worries, we will see Nubbins, The Cook, Grandpa, The Hitchiker and more.
Everyone at Gun Interactive prefers to innovate and push the genre forward. Gun Interactive’s Wes Keltner said. “How do you do this? Well, when it came to the design of Texas we knew that 3v4 was different. All the mechanics and features are built around this fundamental rethinking of an asymmetrical multiplayer. Additionally when you look at the ‘74 film, you’ll note there’s an entire family to deal with, not just Leatherface. So it felt natural to have three killers chasing victims. … We love a good challenge, and there are massive amounts of balance required to make three killers feel and play uniquely, while still providing exciting gameplay. When you have three killers and four victims running around a gamespace, you spend a lot of time on level design. Creating shadows and items to hide behind, mixtures of open rooms to move slowly through, while hallways become natural choke points that players can move quickly through to find the next hiding spot. With three killers chasing you around, it can be overwhelming. It was also our responsibility to assure that each level creates exciting moments drenched in terror, but ample spots to catch a reprieve and make your next move.”
This just blew our minds. So, players will be able to take on 4 victims and 3 killers! This is a huge improvement on Friday the 13th The Game, in which you could only play as Jason and have one killer per level. This gives folks a lot more time to be able to be the Sawyer fam. I’m already hoping that we get to see Lefty from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. It would be great to see him come in and do battle with his multiple, holstered chainsaws.
Are you ready to take on the role of a Sawyer?
Greg Nicotero’s Leatherface Mask and Saw Revealed in New ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Teaser
Gun Interactive’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has given us one heck of a game. The entire cat-and-mouse matches between the Family and the Victims has been a blast to navigate. Each character is fun to play as but it always comes back to Leatherface. Playing as him is always a blast. In our first bit of DLC make-up FX artist and filmmaker, Greg Nicotero gives us a new mask, a new saw, and a brand new kill. This new bit of DLC is coming in October and will cost $15.99.
The arrival of make-up designed by Nicotero is a cool one. The entire design is really cool. From his bolo bone tie to his mask designed with the mouth fixed to where Leatherface’s eye peers through.
Of course, the saw is very cool too, and has the very cool bonus feature of being named a Nicotero saw. Which somehow fits perfectly as the name of a chainsaw.
“What’s so rewarding about working alongside Greg is his wealth of knowledge, his experience with practical effects, makeup and the art of creature creation.” said Wes Keltner, CEO and President of Gun Interactive. “He’s touched so many horror franchises over the years, it just made sense to bring him on board. And when the two of us get together, it’s like kids in a candy store! We had a blast working on this,and bringing that vision to life is something both Gun and Sumo are very proud of.”
Greg Nicotero’s DLC arrives this October. The full Texas Chainsaw Massacre game is out now. What do you think of the new mask? Let us know in the comments section.
‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III’s’ Zombie Trailer Introduces an Open-World and Operators
This marks the very first time that Zombies come to the world of Modern Warfare. And it looks like they are going all out and adding an entirely new experience to the gameplay.
The new zombies-based adventure will take place in big wide-open massive worlds similar to Modern Warfare II’s DMZ mode. It will also feature operators similar to those in Warzone. These operators combined with an open-world mechanics are sure to bring an entirely new experience to the classic zombies mode that fans are used to.
Personally, I believe that this new update is exactly what the Zombies mode needed. It was due for something to mix it up and this is a very nice way to do it. DMZ mode was a lot of fun and I think that this will be the thing to shake up the world of zombies and get folks interested all over again.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III arrives November 10.
‘Mortal Kombat 1’ DLC Teases Big Horror Name
Mortal Kombat 1 may have just been released but already creator of Mortal Kombat and Injustice, Ed Boon is making plans for exciting DLC. In one of Boon’s latest Tweets, he gave a huge tease that wasn’t very subtle in nature. But, it points to a big horror icon coming to to Mortal Kombat 1.
Boon’s Tweet was a black-and-white image of all the biggest horror icons. Each icon came with check marks over icons who have been previously added and question marks over the ones that hadn’t yet been added.
This leaves Pinhead, Chucky, Michael Myers, Billy, and Ghostface all with question marks. All of these characters would be cool editions to the latest title. Especially someone like Pinhead.
Earlier this year a data spill pointed to Ghostface appearing in an upcoming title. It looks like that upcoming title may have been Mortal Kombat 1. We will have to wait and see to find out for sure. But, including a Ghostface capable of performing all kills from the full franchise would be awesome. I can already picture a garage door kill.
Who would you like to see in the latest game? If you could only choose one, who would you think it was?
