With ten seasons of Seth McFarlane's Family Guy to explore it might seem silly to base a new video game on one single episode. That is unless the episode in question is season eight's brilliant "Road to the Multiverse."
Outed on Friday via Amazon and confirmed by Activision this morning, Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse recalls the dimension-hopping hijinks of Brian the dog and Stewie the evil baby as they hop from one twisted reality to the next, desperately trying to find their way home. In the famous episode the pair encounter several different versions of the Griffin family, from classic Claymation to a sick and twisted Disney-fied version of themselves.
Not much else is known about the upcoming title, which is often the case with games leaked before their time, though Activision executive VP David Oxford does an uncensored experience that adheres closely to the show's characters and fiction.
"Fans of Family Guy will love that we've taken some of the series' most iconic and memorable moments and built them into an impressive and uncensored video game. Anyone who watches the show will appreciate how much we have adhered to its rich and twisted universe and characters."
As long as it's lengthier and more playable than High Voltage Software's 2006 Family Guy video game and more memorable that that online thing they insist on doing we'll be fine.
