However, Gun Interactive also revealed that the game introduces new family members to the Slaughter family. Moreover, the game takes place before the 1974, 1986, and 2006 Texas Chain Saw Massacre films from Tobe Hooper.

Kane Hodder, best known for portraying Jason Voorhees both in the film series and video game for Friday the 13th, is going to be Leatherface in the upcoming video game. However, this isn’t his first time being Leatherface. In Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Hodder played Leatherface for his stunts.

And the Hitchhiker will be played by Ed Neal. He previously played this role in the first Texas Chain Saw Massacre film released in 1974. But aside from playing the role of the Hitchhiker, Neal was credited for three voices in Wii’s Metroid Prime 3.

As for the game’s story, it revolves around a group of five young adults. The group is led by Ana Flores and they decide to look for her missing sister. However, things took a turn for the worst when they end up at the Slaughterhouse, where Leatherface and his family have sinister plans for them.
