Codemasters’ Overlord Xbox 360 Demo Available Now - Puts Fun into Feudal Repression


There’s a Minion horde ready to pulse through your download pipeline as Codemasters today announced the release of the Overlord™ playable demo for the Xbox 360™ videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft. Available for download now from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace, the demo gives gamers their first opportunity to see just how truly evil a ruler they can be. Overlord is planned to release June 26th for the Xbox 360 and the PC, and is rated “T” (Teen - Blood and Gore, Crude Humor, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol, Violence - content suitable for persons ages 13 and older) by the ESRB. A PC demo is set to follow shortly.

In the demo, players don the Overlord’s illustrious armor and assemble a team of Brown Minions (the brawlers) to head off on a session of serious destruction in the once tranquil area of The Mellow Hills. Descending upon the unsuspecting populace and wildlife, the Overlord must use his loyal minions to gather life-force from the somewhat unwilling sheep, grow the size of his minion horde, and let the Halflings-gone-wild know there’s a new boss in town. Top that off with Minion upgrades, including better weapons and pumpkin helmets, throw in some peasant intimidation and a show-down with the Guard Troll at the Slave Camp, and players will have a taste of the havoc that a Minion horde can wreak.

In the full version of Overlord, players will be able to amass armies of up to 50 Minions from all four Minion types to lead into battle. As the Overlord, players will have to explore and conquer the rest of the fantasy world’s twisted domains, with seven corrupt heroes to defeat, a Dark Tower to rebuild, and the Legion of Terror and other spells to unleash as they strive to be proclaimed the all mighty Overlord!
