Horror Film ‘Killer Klowns from Outer Space’ Gets Asymmetrical Multiplayer Game

Gamescom, the world’s largest gaming event, starts today in Germany, and many announcements have been revealed including new trailers for New Tales from the Borderlands, Hogwarts Legacy and Callisto Protocol. One surprising reveal is Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game, an upcoming 3v7 asymmetrical online multiplayer horror game inspired by MGM’s 1988 cult horror classic film.

MGM has partnered up with Good Shepherd Entertainment, an independent game publisher based in the Netherlands that worked on John Wick: Hex. Teravision Games is developing the game as a live service title and will include multiple content updates after its launch.

Synopsis: When murderous alien Klowns come to feed on the quiet town of Crescent Cove, the locals must work together to fight back and survive the invasion. Players can team up as either Klowns or humans, choosing from a variety of character classes, to explore an expansive ever-changing map with creepy surprises waiting around every corner.

Key Features:

  • SEND IN THE KLOWNS: Take on a role of the iconic Killer Klowns – cooperate in a team of three players, utilize outlandish abilities, hunt humans with zany weapons, and plan your own alien invasion to harvest the citizens of Crescent Cove.
  • PROTECT HUMANITY: Fight back as a team of seven brave citizens of Crescent Cove – pick your class, explore the city for valuable loot and weapons, avoid getting captured by Klowns, and try to survive – or sabotage – the alien invasion.
  • WELCOME TO THE TOWN: Crescent Cove is a sprawling arena for unique 3v7 fights between Klowns and humans – boasting various locations, randomly generated map layout and a multitude of tactical opportunities for both teams.
  • EVOLVING THE HORROR: Unique approach to hide-and-seek gameplay, customization & respawn systems, PvPvE, dynamic objectives leading to multiple match results – Killer Klowns evolves the online horror formula in new ways.

The game is led by game designer Randy Greenback, who worked on Friday the 13th: The Game as an executive director.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game will be available in early 2023 on Steam, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
