A trailer for Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game has been released, providing a better look at the game’s namesake villains. It followed a clip that featured the Killer Klowns’ AI-controlled minions.
The game, inspired by the 1988 cult classic horror film Killer Klowns From Outer Space, looks to follow in the footsteps of other successful horror-based asymmetrical games like Dead by Daylight, which has done quite well by recreating great horror icons of the ’80s.
Play as a team of Killer Klowns with a wide range of powers and clown-centric weapons, or play as a team of citizens of Crescent Cove working together to save themselves from the Killer Klowns.
Here’s a new trailer for Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game, featuring an in-depth look at the game’s titular klowns and their arsenal. The trailer doesn’t explain the mechanics of controlling individual Klowns, but it does showcase the elaborate and hideous character models while they’re doing nothing.
Names like “tank” and “scout” among the Klowns’ ranks indicate their intended roles in battle. The short footage, accompanied by snickering laughs and metal, is both ominous and effective in setting the mood for Killer Klowns.
This game resembles the film’s blend of zany carnival antics and unsettling horror. All of the Klowns have photorealistic skin, yet their weapons look like they were made for toys. Players have had the opportunity to try out the Killer Klowns from Outer Space beta since last August.

The game has a 3v7 structure with “respawn systems, PvPvE, and dynamic objectives,” as well as the Klowns above. The unique 3v7 design is a significant draw. The Klowns may have a slight advantage since Dead by Daylight and Friday the 13th only have one monster per game.
Since Dead by Daylight’s premiere, it’s been the undisputed king of the subgenre, so it should be intriguing to see if Killer Klowns’ take on the concept will win over new viewers. Killer Klowns may seem like a strange choice for a video game adaptation.
Oooh, and to a further degree, ahhh. Thanks @IGN! https://t.co/PnywasHxFH

Still, it could end up being a good thing because there is already an audience for asymmetrical horror games, and the new approach will likely be refreshing. Playing the game will also provide film fans additional opportunities to engage with the IP.
There’s still time to find out if the game can live up to the hype around it as a cult classic. In early 2023, you can expect Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
