F84 Games, Dynamite Entertainment, and Red Sonja, LLC have announced a new partnership that will see Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, brought to life as a playable character in a dedicated, action-packed, and narrative-driven game ready for release this upcoming winter 2016/2017.
The game will be based on the comic book published by Dynamite, with the series' writer Gail Simone confirmed to spearhead the plotlines, characters, and world. Collaborating with F84 Games, Simone's take on the fearless warrior of Hyrkania will present a continuation of her stories – putting fans straight into an interactive video game version of the Red Sonja comic books.
"There are two things I love in this world without question, and those things are video games and Red Sonja," says Gail Simone. "Gaming is such a huge part of my life, it's what I do for relaxation, socialization, and inspiration, and my game and console collection is a terrifying sight to behold. Mixing my favorite character, the She-Devil With A Sword, with my life-long love of games is a dream come true. We plan on making this a bloody, sexy, funny good time, full of brutal swordplay, cackling villains, and horrendous monsters, all seen through Sonja's trademark wit. I cannot wait."
