It seems that the Universal monsters are back with a vengeance. Not only are they coming to Blu-Ray this October but starting this summer, You'll Be able to play the classic monsters in a huge multiplayer online gaming experience. it seems that the universal gods were listening when asked the question: "Where have all the classic monsters gone?"

From the press release:

Bigpoint today released new information about its anticipated free-to-play (F2P) browser-based title, Universal Monsters Online. The game, which Bigpoint is developing in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, will enable players to experience Universal’s iconic cast of classic monsters in a highly-competitive Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (Moba) setting.

Taking on the persona of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, and The Creature from the Black Lagoon – among many other notable monsters from Universal’s rich history – players compete with and against each other in a blend of combat and strategic game play.

Like all Bigpoint titles, Universal Monsters Online will be F2P. In-game currency can be used to purchase items such as new characters (after a free-trial period), unique character skins, and special abilities.

Bigpoint plans to begin closed beta testing shortly, and is now encouraging players to sign-up for early access at: http://www.universalmonstersonline.com/



One of the nice things about this game promises to be the attention to detail Universal and Bigpoint are putting into every facet of the production. Not only will you be able to play the classic monster characters but also great supporting characters like Inspector Krogh from son of Frankenstein! This could be the big push that the Universal Monsters needed to be contenders in today's horror society, after all, there are plenty of horror related Facebook games, but we all know that those games are designed to run your life and none of the characters are as cool as the Frankenstein monster.

I love the Universal Monsters and I hope that this new game helps a whole new generation discover just how cool it is to be undead.

I saw an article about this and got so excited. I love me some vintage monster, battle arenas and of coarse video games. I'm definitely picking this up as well as the blurays. Hopefully I'm not the only one who missing these classic creatures.
