The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game being developed by Gun Interactive and Sumo Nottingham isn’t going to be released until sometime in 2023, but Ryan McCaffrey at IGN is a very lucky person and already had the chance to play six rounds of the game! You can see video of McCaffrey’s gameplay, accompanied by talk of his very positive experience playing the game, in the embed at the bottom of this article.
Matches of this Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game will pit four potential victims against three killers. You can read about the victim characters HERE. In addition to the killers from the movie, the game will also feature killer characters that have been invented specifically for this game. During the matches he played, McCaffrey only had access to the killers from the movie: Leatherface, the Cook, and the Hitch-hiker. Matches will take place in maps that are incredible recreations of locations from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as you can see in this video. The matches McCaffrey played took place in the farmhouse map.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game is set before the events of the original film and has the following set-up:
When Maria Flores went missing, and local law enforcement seemed to stall out in their search, her younger sister Ana teamed up with some of Maria’s friends from college to pick up the trail. It’s time for you to meet our cast of Victims.
The cast that has been assembled to bring the Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game’s characters to life includes genre icon Kane Hodder, who is doing the motion-capture performance for Leatherface; Edwin Neal, providing the voice of the Hitch-hiker, the character he played in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre; and Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Kristina Klebe (Don’t Kill It), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), and Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night) in unspecified roles.
