The Texas Chain Saw Massacre takes place in the months leading up to the events of the original 1974 film and features authentic recreations of the locations, characters and footage from the source material. Players control Victims or members of the Slaughter Family, including the infamous Leatherface, in a vicious 3-on-4 cat-and-mouse game that transforms the tension and suspense of the film into thrilling, competitive action. The Victims and the Slaughter Family must both use their unique skills to emerge victorious, while the former use stealth and cleverness to escape their terrifying tormentors, while each member of the Slaughter Family performs relentless and murderous attacks to hunt their prey.
