A new The Addams Family game is coming to PC and consoles later this year, just in time for Halloween — get ready to scare your pants off with the 4-player co-op game The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem!

In The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem, you and up to 3 other players have to tackle a spooky visitor who has come to the family home with the intent to take it over. That means diving into the depths of the strangest house this side of Control — there's sure to be a lot of interesting things to see! Check out the game's announce trailer to get a feel for the action:

 

Players will have to platform, navigate devious puzzles, and fight all kinds of spooky enemies in the depths of the mansion. It looks like you'll be able to play as Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, and Wednesday. The trailer shows the characters wielding swords and shooting some kind of black gunk at enemies throughout their adventures.

The debut of this game marks the first time The Addams Family is coming to PC and consoles in well over 20 years. That probably has a lot to do with the release of the 2019 The Addams Family animated film; unfortunately, it doesn't look like you'll be able to play as other classic characters such as Uncle Fester or Lurch.

You'll be able to get The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem for PC via Steam, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch according to today's announcement; no price has been announced just yet. For now, you can learn more about the game on its official website.
