Minions, Ho! In Overlord: Fellowship Of Evil Trailer

Some cool hats

Minions are big business nowadays, I gather from ignoring all the Despicable Me meme Thinkpieces and Hot Takes scrolling down Twitter. And yet, Codemasters are stepping away from their own brand of minions in Fellowship of Evil [official site]. Their upcoming spin-off of the Pikmin-with-jovial-murder series focuses more on player characters in co-op action.

Minions are still around to do your murderous bidding, mind. Lest people think that they're gone, Codemasters have dropped a new trailer focused on the minions, showing snippets of gameplay and a few of the great hats (and not-hats) they'll get to wear. Very important to Overlord, hats.

Codies have also put out a big answered a load of fan questions about quite what the game is. In short, it's an action-RPG starring Netherghūls come back to life to kill things, supporting solo play but really meant for co-op. Up to four deadfolks will be running around, killing stuff, levelling up to get new abilities and gathering shiny things to swap for fancy weapons. And minions. You do still have minions too, mind, and upgrading them does more than before. Codies say:

"Players gain the ability to summon all four minion colours very early in the game. After that, players can upgrade them by spending loot found during quests. The upgrades are colour-specific, so for example, brown minions will eventually gain an upgrade that allows them to taunt enemies for tanking purposes. Players can focus on upgrading one minion colour, or instead spread their loot around all four colours, two colours, or any combination they wish."

I JUST WANT TO GET THEM COOL HATS.

The game is "coming soon" via Steam.
