Gun Interactive has released a gameplay trailer for the new The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game, and it is really terrifying. This trailer definitely has more bloody violence than we’ve seen in earlier trailers.
The game is based on the Tobe Hooper-directed 1974 film, and the developers of the game made sure to meticulously recreate the setting of the movie and the characters.
The game features the characters from the movies as well as new family members, and the events of the game take place before Tobe Hooper’s movie. The story is about “a group of five young adults led by Ana Flores set out to search for her missing sister. What they found was terror beyond their wildest nightmares.”
Wes Keltner, CEO and Audio Director at Gun Interactive said: “We say it a lot here at Gun. Authenticity is incredibly important to us. That’s probably the more press-friendly way of saying, we’re obsessive. We studied the exact cameras Hooper used as well as the lens, the LUT’s and color corrections that occurred in post. We’re also lucky that we get to work directly with Kim Henkel, so we can really peel apart the DNA of this film and bring it to life the best way we can. This is what we’re passionate about because we’re fans, just like you.”
Kane Hodder will be reprising his role as Leatherface in the game. Hodder previously did motion-capture work for Jason Voorhees for the Friday the 13th game, which Gun Interactive also made.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will be released sometime in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
