Original article [Thu 7th Jul, 2022 10:15 BST]: Publisher Microids has announced Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia, a new adventure game from the XXL series, starring the beloved Gallic warriors in history.

The game is a top-down adventure filled with exploration, puzzles and lots of chaotic brawls to immerse yourself in. For the first time in franchise history, you’ll also have the option to play this new game on your own or with up to three additional players for 4-player co-op.

Here is a little history from Microids:

“In the courtyard of 50 BC. Gaul is completely occupied by the Romans. Well, not quite! One small village of indomitable Gauls is still resisting the invaders…calling Asterix and Obelix for help, as they need help to overcome the Roman invasion and retrieve her father’s beloved golden ram. In this mission, you will control your favorite heroes and use your fists and any surrounding objects to break through by throwing the Romans in the air! Our two Gauls will also be able to count on their trusty druid Getafix, who is working on a new recipe for a magical potion for extra strength!”

Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia is scheduled for release in Fall 2022.
