More Of The Original Vision Will Be Coming With MediEvil


A new look at MediEvil is out there to show off where the game is and what has been added back in from the original run of MediEvil

You have been wanting more for MediEvil. Now we have more for the game just ahead of Gamescom where it will be playable for the masses. Sadly, not everyone will be able to make it out for that, so we have to rely on Other Ocean to drop some new gameplay and details for the game on us. There are still a few months until MediEvil's October 25th release date so we have plenty of time for all of that. I have a feeling it will flow out more after the PS4 hands-on people will have, but here we go with the latest updates we have today.

We have a new behind the scenes video for MediEvil today that is filled with all kinds of gameplay and scenes we may remember. That or we may remember the feeling of as that is one of the design elements that they are going with. This is not going to be a shot for shot remake of MediEvil is what you should take from that. Not only that, but the original source code has been looked at too so the team was able to actually get more of the original vision out there. Things like more than 56 enemy types and boss transitions that the original technology was not able to produce for us. So it will all feel familiar but fully new. I really like all of this.

Have a look at the latest for MediEvil just below and see more of what I am talking about. That and all of the new gameplay that is mixed in for it all. It is, thankfully, all-new gameplay too.

MediEvil — A Behind The Scenes Look With Other Ocean

Citizens of Gallowmere, can you sense it?

The hint of a cool breeze, the leaves starting to shift colors, the faint smell of pumpkin spice… that’s right, we’re less than three months away from October 25 and the launch of MediEvil on PlayStation 4!

The team at Other Ocean has worked extra hard to make sure your favorite haunted kingdom has just the perfect amount of spook and shine, so please take a look at this behind the scenes video to get a glimpse of how they’re bringing Sir Dan back to HD glory.

One of the key aspects of remaking a 20-year old PlayStation classic such as MediEvil was getting into the heads of the original development team.

And if you’re interested in knowing more about the development of MediEvil, additional interviews, concept art, and making-of content can be found in the Art of MediEvil digital art book, and the MediEvil Soundtrack app, available exclusively with the Digital Deluxe version of the game.

MediEvil is out on October 25 for $29.99, so make sure to preorder at PlayStation Store, and we’ll be back with more news in the upcoming weeks!

I’m also pleased to announce that Gamescom attendees will have an opportunity to go hands-on with MediEvil starting on August 20. Think you have what it takes to climb Cemetery Hill and shatter the Stained Glass Demon? Stop by and show us what you’ve got — there’s life in the old bones yet!
