We all know Seth McFarlane loves to utilize cut-away moments
in Family Guy
; so much so, that some folks say it takes away from the story. The upcoming retail title, Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse
, revealed some new details recently and these famous cut-aways were mentioned.
For starters, the game will put players into third-person couch co-op (or single player, if you prefer) as the dynamic duo Stewie and Brian. The game won't exactly pick up where the popular multiverse episode left off, but the pair will find themselves back in many different alternate versions of their world, and they'll each have their own specific weapons and abilities. Unfortunately, Activision hasn't yet revealed any of these parallel worlds, but it's probably safe to assume at least some of them will parody video games. As Stewie and Brian, you'll traverse these varied worlds interacting with and defeating many familiar characters in search of Stewie's arch-nemesis, Bertram, who has returned with a vengeance.
The game, unlike the show, will forego cut-aways in favor of a more linear story, but it's still being written by the team behind the series, similar to how Trey Parker and Matt Stone are overseeing the development of South Park: The Stick of Truth
. In addition to the co-op, the game will also offer one on one multiplayer modes, all with a "Family Guy
twist".Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse
, barring any scraped knees, should arrive sometime this fall. Thanks to the TA'ers who sent us this story.
