Microids and OSome Studio have announced that Asterix & Obelix XXL3: The Crystal Menhir will be launched on November 21 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac. A launch trailer has been released.
The story of Asterix & Obelix XXL3: The Crystal Menhir begins in the small village of Armorica, where peace reigns and the villagers go about their everyday lives. Asterix and Obelix hunt wild boar, villagers quarrel and the village chief paces around the main square. But peace cannot last forever.
One day, the druid Getafix receives a strange letter. This event marks the beginning of an exciting journey for the two heroes – and a living nightmare for the Roman camps they’ll come across. Helped by the mysterious powers of the crystal menhir, the duo will travel to distant lands and face many dangers.
In addition, a cooperative mode will be available in Asterix & Obelix XXL saga for the very first time. You will be able to play with family or friends on the same screen. Asterix and Obelix’s actions will be complementary and the two heroes must cooperate as they make their way through the game.
Each of the two characters will have special moves and by working together they will find the best approach to attack a Roman camp and send hordes of Romans flying like never before. Therefore, you can enjoy this adventure as a duo.
