Hothead Games Announces DeathSpank: The Baconing

By Michelle Balsan, 8 years ago
Hothead Games announced that a follow-up to its XBLA RPGs, DeathSpank and DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, is currently in development. The third title seems immediately like it will continue the series' unique brand of humor. After all, what isn't awesome about calling your new game DeathSpank: The Baconing?

The new entry sees our bethonged hero, DeathSpank, trying to locate the Fires of Bacon. DeathSpank: The Baconing will feature four all new bosses and a new sidekick named "Bob from Marketing". Several locations have also been revealed, including The Forbidden Zone, The Forest of Tomorrow, and Barnacle Lake. The game also promises an "all new insane level of difficulty". DeathSpank will have to travel through the aforementioned lands seeking out the Fires of Bacon to destroy the thongs and end their evil power. The title will include over 100 new quests, more than 70 characters, and more than 80 new weapons.

Hothead also promises that several gameplay improvements will be arriving in The Baconing, though there aren't many details as to what those improvement are. They do, however, assert that "players will feel more in control of the battle situations than in previous DeathSpank games, providing gamers with opportunity and choice when engaging the enemies which stand in DeathSpank's way".

No release date information is available at this time.
