Today, French publisher Microids announced Beat‘em up / Action-adventure game Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia, due to launch later this year on PC and consoles.
The game, developed by OSome Studio (the same that made the remasters), is set to add co-op for up to four players on the same screen. It is unclear whether online co-op is also supported.
The year is 50 BC. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely! One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders… Meanwhile, in Hibernia (today known as Ireland) Keratine, chief Whiskitonix’s daughter, is calling Asterix and Obelix to the rescue as they need help to overcome the Roman invasion and bring back her father’s beloved golden ram. For this mission, you’ll control your favorite heroes and use your fists and any surrounding objects to make your way while throwing Romans in the air! Our two Gauls will also be able to count on their trusty druid Getafix, who’s been working on a new magic potion recipe for extra power!
