Stranger Things: The Game revealed at the Game Awards

Stranger Things 3 The Game Trailer World Premiere

Are you a fan of this popular Netflix series?

It's being developed by Bonus XP and is coming at some point next year.

Show creators Matt and Ross Duffer announced the new title at The Game Awards, which was described as an "action adventure RPG that pays homage to the 16-bit era".

Much like the third season, there's now no release date for the game, although it's reportedly set to be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Mac, PC, and mobile devices. Co-op cross-play will be available between Xbox, Switch, and PC. (No word on PlayStation 4 - at least not yet.) There's no details on how this will work, but more than likely, we'll see players take control of characters within this particular universe, solving puzzles and possibly taking on enemies, depending on who's involved. It seems like developer BonusXP is stepping up their game for the latest crack at the Stranger Things franchise.

As for the story, well, the Duffers aren't talking, as that would apparently spoil what's going to happen with the third season of Stranger Things. Like the series itself!

The game will feature a "few surprises of its own" but will be grounded in the events of the yet to be released third season. The trailer gives a glimpse at some of the settings for Stranger Things season 3, including a government lab and the mall food court that we saw in the first teaser.
