A brand new trailer for Gun Interactive’s upcoming video game The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was shown off for Summer Game Fest today, and a bloodier Red Band version has also made its way online this afternoon. The trailer gives us our best look yet at the gameplay, introducing iconic villains including Leatherface, the Cook, the Hitchhiker, and Grandpa!
“Featuring the Slaughter Family and their Victims, the trailer showcases the familiar frights and sights of the original film along with a host of grisly surprises, while also sharing details on expanded platform availability and the release window.”
Watch the UNCUT footage below!
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre will be launching in 2023 on Playstation®4, Playstation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store, and will be launching into Game Pass on Xbox and PC.
“The community asked, and we’re thrilled to answer that our partners at Sumo were able to create a plan to bring The Texas Chain Saw Massacre to the Xbox One and PlayStation®4 platforms in a way that preserves the gameplay and visual tone of the title while giving players what they have been asking for. It was important to us to enable every fan of the franchise to experience our vision for the game,” said Ismael Vicens, Executive Producer, Gun Interactive.
The game will feature classic villains from the movies as well as new family members, and the events of the Chain Saw game will take place *before* Tobe Hooper’s original classic.
Kane Hodder is playing Leatherface, and Ed Neal, who played the Hitchhiker in Tobe Hooper’s original horror classic, will be reprising the role in the upcoming game.
Here’s the plot synopsis: “A group of five young adults led by Ana Flores set out to search for her missing sister. What they found was terror beyond their wildest nightmares.”
