It’s time to kill…or survive, depending on what team you’re on.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre game, developed by Gun Interactive, launches today on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox SXS (with availability on Game Pass). Unlike its predecessor Friday the 13th, the development team assures players that the rights for this game are less complicated, so things should turn out better.

Gameplay follows an asymmetrical horror game format, akin to titles like Dead by Daylight and Left 4 Dead. Players are divided into two categories: killers and victims. The entire Slaughter Family, including Leatherface, work together as killers to track down victims, who must navigate dangers and locate escape tools. Each character possesses unique abilities that can be upgraded, adding layers of threat and strategy.

Set a few months before the events of the original 1974 horror film, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre game centers around the search for Maria, the older sister of Ana Flores. Her disappearance prompts a search, uncovering macabre and terrifying experiences. The game offers a mix of returning and new characters, and features familiar locations such as the Slaughter Family's house.

(It should be noted that Sony digital preorders were prematurely activated in certain regions, but the game servers are still scheduled to become operational at 10 AM (EST) on Friday, August 18.)
