We’ve updated our Gallery for Codemasters upcoming evil fantasy world – Overlord for Microsoft’s Xbox 360.

You can view all our brand-new trailer along with a ton of screenshots in our Devilish Media Section.

The game focuses around an evil overlord who can command up to 50 minions at the same time. This demonic warrior is resurrected by minors hoping thathe’ll bring balance to their world. Set in a rather roughRuined Tower, you’ll be able to control the overlord and performa variety ofdifferent tasks, including upgrading your weapons, magical powers, and most importantly your characters attributes. Evil quests will earn gold to replenish your stats and make your tower look…pretty. The easiest way to obtain gold is to beat up innocent peasants, kill generations of people- what ever you deem necessary to complete your goals and become the most evil Overlord in the WORLD!!! MWUAHAHAHAH [Ahem sorry] Doing this will cause the people of the land to become terrified of you. (Which is a good thing)

Overlord also has Xbox Live play, including:

Co-op:

Will let you and a friend take on immense enemy forces, you’ll have to work as a team if you want to be victorious.

Pillage:

This mode will need you to gather as much gold as possible, the other players will need to do the same but try and stop you from getting items.

Slaughter:

Slaughter will place two players miles apart, you’ll need to run around and collect as much resources as possible before you meet in the middle of the map for a glorious battle, may the most resourcefulness player win.

Currently slated for a June ’07 release date, we can’t wait to command 50 minions at once all bowing at my feet. Let us know your thoughts on this title, will you be purchasing it? leave us a comment below.
