In a masterful bait-and-switch, Goat Simulator developer Coffee Stain North made your entire Summer Game Fest viewers assume they have been watching a brand new Dead Island 2 trailer… earlier than the script flipped. The sequel to Goat Simulator, which was one thing of successful when it launched, has chosen to take the title Goat Simulator 3, which each retains up the sequence behavior of being fairly annoying, and is kind of humorous. 

I additionally like that it referred to its announcement as Geoff Keighley’s “dream job” within the press launch. No: that will be Goat Simulator 3: A Hideo Kojima game. Interestingly sufficient the numbering could also be a nod to Metal Gear Solid. Kojima initially deliberate to name the second MGS game MGS3, but it surely by no means occurred.

The game’s set on the sandbox island of San Angora, and as within the unique gamers are free to roam round and destroy stuff. “This next generation of goat simulation has it all,” boasts the press launch. “Goats, goats wearing hats, goats riding a goat wearing a hat.” The goats are totally customisable (head, again, toes, physique, horns and furs) and a few gear grants new talents.

The massive information is multiplayer: You can play in a herd of as much as 4 mates on-line (or domestically), and the game comes with seven multiplayer mini-games. The world apparently comprises tonnes of secrets and techniques, quests, collectables, “and the devs actually bothered to make an ending this time!” Use your personal 4 hooves to get round, grind in your butt or buckle up for the experience of your life as all goats can drive automobiles.

“Since the release of the first Goat Simulator, it’s come to our attention that it did not really represent reality and how it actually feels to be a goat,” stated Santiago Ferrero, inventive director at Coffee Stain North. “So for the past couple of years, we’ve been doing some googling, and I am pleased to say: we’ve made it. Goat Simulator 3 is by far the greatest goat experience out there. Is it worth the money? Who knows. But will you regret it? Probably.”

Goat Simulator 3 is coming to PC completely on the Epic Games Store.
