Sony’s Halloween surprise gift for its fans is the first gameplay trailer of the remake of a classic hack and slash action game called MediEvil. First released in 1988 for the original PlayStation, a remake of the game for the PlayStation 4 is due for release next year. Here’s the announce trailer for MediEvil showcasing the gameplay:
The MediEvil remake for the PlayStation 4 has been “completely remade from the grave up” and can be played in full 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Sony collaborated with Other Ocean Interactive, the studio that worked on Minecraft for the Xbox One, to create a remake of the classic PlayStation title, complete with a graphical overhaul.
“MediEvil follows the story of Sir Dan, an unlikely champion who met an unfortunate end on the field of battle. He receives a chance at redemption when his nemesis, the evil sorcerer Lord Zarok, accidentally resurrects him 100 years after that fateful day,” reads the PlayStation Blog post. “Lord Zarok seeks to conquer the Kingdom of Gallowmere, and only the skeletal Sir Dan stands between Zarok’s army of the undead and the kingdom he swore to protect.”
Fans of the original will enjoy this nostalgic experience as they smash their way through hordes of zombies, werewolves, and other creatures from the Kingdom of Gallowmere. Currently, MediEvil is set to release sometime in 2019, and Sony will share more information regarding the title in the upcoming months.
