Stranger Things Video Game to Follow the Events of Season 3

Another big announcement came to the Game Awards tonight. Netflix's Stranger Things is finally getting a video game.

Following a flashy sizzle reel from Season 2, series creators Matt and Ross Duffer announced the game from Netflix and BonusXP. The game, known as Stranger Things 3: The Game, can be played solo or co-op and follows the events of the third season. It'll be an isometric action title, evoking the 16-bit graphics of yesteryear.

Players will take control of characters from the show's cast to fight monsters in Hawkins, Indiana. The trailer showed Lucas and Steve working together, in addition to Dustin and Hopper. It's unclear how deep the character roster will go, though news will likely be expanded closer to release. This is the second piece of Stranger Things game news to arrive; the show was meant to receive a game from Telltale, but the studio's closure earlier this year has hampered development. Netflix is still looking for a developer for the project.
