It’s the spookiest day in Spooktober, and Sony saw fit to announce a rather appropriate remake on this most frightening of days: a remake of the classic game MediEvil will be coming to the PlayStation 4 next year.
MediEvil is a game packed full of sword-swinging action and perplexing puzzles in the tradition of 3D platformers of the PlayStation era. The game is well-beloved, so much so that fans recreated the first four levels of the game as a mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Now it’s all set to return with some modern polish for the PlayStation 4! Have a look at the (rather comprehensive) Announce Trailer to see what you’ll get in this remake of a classic:
On the off chance you missed this game the first time around, MediEvil tells the tale of the brave Sir Daniel Fortesque. It was said that he bravely lead the king’s army to defeat the evil wizard Zarok. In truth, he was killed by the first arrow fired in the climatic battle and the dark sorcerer escaped.
A hundred years later, Zarok moves to raise an army of the undead yet again, long after the reign of the previous King of Gallowmere. Unfortunately for the bad guy, his dark magicks also happened to awaken the brave Sir Fortesque! Your bony butt is the only thing that stands between the Kingdom of Gallowmere and Zarok’s evil machinations.
MediEvil for the PlayStation 4 is a full remake made in a partnership that included Sony’s International Software Development Team and Other Ocean Interactive (Rick & Morty: Virtual Rick-ality, Thimbleweed Park). The game was teased at the end of last year’s PlayStation Experience. Unfortunately, that’s all we know for now. MediEvil will be making its way to the PlayStation 4 with brilliant 4K graphics sometime in 2019. Happy Halloween!
