Texas Chain Saw Massacre Gets Release Date and Technical Test

Asymmetrical multiplayer horror game Texas Chain Saw Massacre finally has a release date. The game will release for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on August 18, 2023. It will launch on Xbox Game Pass (for console and PC) on day one, as well.

Publisher Gun Interactive announced this via a new trailer.

While August might seem far away, a technical test for Texas Chain Saw Massacre will go live on May 25, allowing you to dive in a little early, hopefully holding you over for the full release.

Texas Chain Saw Massacre is based on the 1974 film and will be similar to the Friday the 13th game, wherein you’ll either play as Leatherface or the survivors. As Leatherface, your goal is to eliminate the survivors using your trusty chainsaw. The survivors, on the other hand, are tasked with utilizing the surroundings to make it out alive.

Texas Chain Saw Massacre aims to be as authentic as possible. “Authenticity is a vital part of what we do here at Gun,” reads an excerpt from the game’s description. “But that authenticity runs deeper than just Hero Art. For The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, we didn’t just recreate locations and characters; we recreated a whole time and place in Texas.”

Sumo Digital is leading the development of this game. The team is best known for working on LittleBigPlanet 3 and Crackdown 3.
