If you’re still getting chills from the shocking trailer for It: Chapter Two, we can’t promise that the imagery from The OP’s forthcoming game and its unfortunate familiarity will offer any solace.
Based on the 2017 remake of the Stephen King classic, IT: Evil Below puts you in the middle of Derry, ME, where players will take on the role of the all-vigilant Losers’ Club. Bill Denbrough and his friends are on high alert to overpower Pennywise, the supernatural menace who resurfaces every 27 years with its insatiable appetite for children. The cooperative strategy game follows the seven heroes as they traverse their neighborhood, using character-specific abilities that maintain the needed courage to defeat Pennywise and cease his mounting abductions. If just one player runs out of health, the objective is failed and Pennywise wins.
Fans of the horror franchise will be drawn to the spine-tingling portrait of the killer, visible from the game’s box top through a translucent, blood-red window. To get a closer look at the uncompromised detail of Pennywise’s costuming in the film, maximize the clip below, which also contains audible tips for keeping your characters alive.
IT: Evil Below invites 2-7 players ages 17 and up to immerse themselves in a chilling, edge-of-your seat experience. Challenge fate to overpower Pennywise in numerous Encounters throughout your journey by using specialized abilities, such as Ben’s limitless card hand, which allows him to draw a card and arm himself whenever he must fight Pennywise. Custom dice add an undertone of dread to every fateful roll, but the players must move forward and swallow feat to defeat the grimacing villain. IT: Evil Belowwill be available for $29.95 MSRP this fall!
If you’d prefer to be able to sleep at night, or solving a mystery is more your speed, two titles bearing the It license are here to bring a less unsettling twist to the table! Announced earlier this year, MONOPOLY®: IT and CLUE®: IT are for sale at your favorite local game store or online retailer! Both games also boast artwork from the aforementioned remake, but with their main focus being the omnipresent red balloon. The six custom tokens of MONOPOLY®: IT are modeled after prominent film symbols including a Paper Boat, Bicycle, and Inhaler are joined by a seventh item, Bev’s Key, which is only available through a GameStop exclusive!
