There’s a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game coming from Gun Interactive (the company that previously brought us Friday the 13th: The Game) and Sumo Nottingham, and the developers have previously let it be known that that the events of the game take place some months before the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie (watch it HERE), allowing for Leatherface to be joined by The Cook and The Hitch-Hiker in asymmetrical matches that will pit three killers against four potential victims. Now they have unveiled the cast of five potential victims that players will be able to choose from. You can see an image of these characters at the bottom of this article, and take a closer look at them on TXChainsawGame.com.
Here’s the 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. It’s time for you to meet our cast of Victims.
And here are the character descriptions:
Julie is a Southern California native and fits every bit of what that description might bring to mind. Sand, surf, and sport lifestyle. But whether or not her life to this point has prepared her for the stress and strain of the experience that requires an entirely different type of toughness remains to be seen. Will her physical abilities be enough to carry her through an absolute nightmare unlike any other?
While Leland might have wrestled in high school, college life is a long way from high school and his glory days of wrestling. Still, he is the toughest of the group, but what he has in strength he lacks elsewhere. A native Texan and bit of a tough guy, but still no match one on one against the likes of the Slaughter Family and therefore his capabilities benefit from teamwork with his peers.
Connie comes from a life on the farm, where she never shied away from the work that went along with it. While not quite what you’d imagine a tomboy to be, Connie relishes in being the type of person that will surprise you with her skills. She’s crafty, intelligent, and ingenuitive. A natural tinkerer, her skills are more surgical than strong arm.
Sonny might have a slightly smaller frame, but he more than makes up for that with his intellect. The best student of the bunch is not only book smart, he’s quick on his feet and quick with his decisions. Perceptive and intuitive, exceptionally situationally aware, Sonny will need to rely on his intelligence if he’s to survive, and his friends would be equally wise to reap the benefits of his abilities.
And then there’s Ana. Ana is fiercely motivated and a natural leader. After losing her father, she and Maria help to take care of their mother, while trying to forge their own paths as well. Now with Maria missing, Ana is done sitting idly by while law enforcement stumbles along. Determination and sheer willpower are her strongest suits, and she’ll need every ounce of her resilience to endure.
No matter which character you choose to play as, it has already been stated that
You cannot kill the killers in this game. Unlike (Friday the 13th), there won’t be a lot of weapons. There’s not gonna be a huge combat system where you can team up on Leatherface. This is strictly about survival. There are little ways to defend yourself, but you won’t be grabbing a baseball bat and trying to attack Leatherface.”
Genre icon Kane Hodder is providing the motion-capture performance for Leatherface in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game, and his co-stars include Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Kristina Klebe (Don’t Kill It), and Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs). It hasn’t been said who will be playing which character.
The cast of killers will include Leatherface, The Cook and the Hitchhiker from the original film, and some characters created specifically for the game.
Here’s the victim line-up:
