Today is launch day for the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game, and a new trailer for the game has been unveiled to mark the occasion
The events of director Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (watch it HERE) took place on August 18, 1973. Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of those events, and Gun Interactive and Sumo Nottingham are celebrating in the best way possible: by releasing their new Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One! With launch day comes the unveiling of a new trailer for the game, and you can check that out in the embed above.
Matches of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game pit 4 victim characters against 3 killer characters. The story of the game has the following set-up: When Maria Flores went missing, and local law enforcement seemed to stall out in their search, her younger sister Ana teamed up with some of Maria’s friends from college to pick up the trail. The game takes place before the events of the original film.
The mo-cap performers included genre icon Kane Hodder (who did stunt work on Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III) as Leatherface, Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs) as The Hitch-hiker; Troy Burgess (Swedish Dicks) as The Cook; Kristina Klebe (Don’t Kill It) as new killer character Sissy; Dove Meir (Dig) as new killer character Johnny; Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), doing the mo-cap for all of the female victim characters; and Hunter C. Smith (Lucky), doing the mo-cap for all of the male victim characters. Although Whalen is doing the mo-cap for the Hitch-hiker, Edwin Neal, who played the character in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, is providing his voice for the game. Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night) is also in the game’s cast, providing the voice of Johnny. You can find out more about the killer characters at THIS LINK and the victim characters HERE.
