The minions are returning in Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, but they aren't the only baddies that will be by your side. Four-player co-op comes to this latest entry in the franchise, and that's not the only change.

The downloadable game comes out this year to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99, and features four-player online/offline co-op play (with minions in tow as well). You are one of the Netherghuls – created to stamp out a glimmer of happiness in the world. If you don't play co-op, you can still go through the game as a single player. This addition changes the camera to an overhead, isometric position,  and Codemaster intimates that other departures from the franchise's past may also be in store.
