It will be released on November 29th in Europe and North America, and is getting several editions:

  • Regular;
  • Limited Edition: includes three figurines (Astérix, Obélix and Dogmatix);
  • Collector Edition ‘these Gauls are crazy!’: includes a resin figurine and other surprises.

Astérix & Obélix XXL 3

A brand new game featuring an original story (set in a world that remains faithful to the comic books), releasing in late 2019.

This new action/adventure game will offer players the chance to play as Astérix or Obélix, alone or with a friend, in an adventure featuring spectacular combat rounds, exploration and puzzles to solve. Both diehard and more recent fans will be excited about taking part in this epic adventure with our two heroes.
