Overlord: Fellowship of Evil from Codemasters will be released on October 20, which makes this the perfect time to check out a new trailer for the game. This new action take on the Overlord franchise will allow up to four players to take on the hordes of evil… no, wait. Let’s do that again. Up to four players can do as much evil as possible. There. Better.
Codemasters are currently working on Overlord: Fellowship of Evil for a console release later in the year, and they have shared with us a new trailer that showcases those that, for me, are the real star of the game: the minions!
Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is a dark and twisted Action RPG filled with the series’ signature black humor. Penned by award-winning original Overlord scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil delivers an epic new quest featuring four Netherghūls – undead servants of the dark arts, resurrected in the absence of a true Overlord, to bring evil back to a world overrun by the forces of good.

I wasn’t sure whether it was as a joke or not at first, but it looks like one person with enough cash to spare could be getting what will be the most expensive special edition of a game ever (and probably will not be topped any time soon). Codemasters revealed today that they will be releasing one version of their GRiD 2: Mono Edition. What is included with this special edition?
- PlayStation 3 Console
- Specially packaged PlayStation 3 version of GRiD 2
- Branded racing suit and gear
- A factory tour of the BAC plant, where they make:
- A 170mph BAC Mono supercar (in GRiD 2 livery)
How much will this special edition set you back? $190,000 (£125,000). Like I said, it will only be available to one customer, and will also go into the record books as the most expensive, commercially available game as a special edition. So, anyone going to gather up the cash to get it?
Gear heads and racing fans rejoice. If you remember back in 2008, Codemasters released a game called GRiD, Race Driver: Grid outside the Americas. It was somewhere between a simulation title and an arcade racer, but it allowed you to essentially run your own race team, with you as the primary driver. The game was quite popular and I recall having a lot of fun with it, especially given that it did a very good job of feeling like you were progressing in a racing career and it had a great, albeit sometimes hilarious, damage engine. Not many other racing games, I feel, gives players quite the adrenaline rush as that title has.
Many gamers have waited years for the sequel, which was announced in 2010, but with the focus for a long time still being on Codemasters’ popular offroad racing series, DiRT, GRiD 2 was kind of put on the backburner, much to the dismay of fans. Until now.
