Original article [Thu 7th Jul, 2024 10:15 BST]: Publisher Microids has announced Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia, a new action-adventure title in the ‘XXL’ series starring history’s favourite Gaulish Warriors.

The game will be a top-down adventure filled with exploration, puzzles, and plenty of chaotic brawls to dive into. For the first time in the franchise’s history, you’ll also have the option to play this new title on your own or with up to three additional players for 4-player cooperative play.

Here’s some story info from Microids:

“The year is 50 BC. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely! One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders… Meanwhile, in Hibernia (today known as Ireland) Keratine, chief Whiskitonix’s daughter, is calling Asterix and Obelix to the rescue as they need help to overcome the Roman invasion and bring back her father’s beloved golden ram. For this mission, you’ll control your favorite heroes and use your fists and any surrounding objects to make your way while throwing Romans in the air! Our two Gauls will also be able to count on their trusty druid Getafix, who’s been working on a new magic potion recipe for extra power!”

Asterix & Obelix XXXL: The Ram From Hibernia is currently scheduled to release in Fall 2024.
