Command a Legion of Minions in Overlord II on NVIDIA GRID


Minions are cool. Gru uses them to hatch his nefarious plans in Despicable Me. Sauron wields legions of Orc minions in his efforts to rule Middle-Earth in The Lord of the Rings. And now, courtesy of #GRIDTuesday, SHIELD owners have their own minion army to command in Overlord II.

Equal parts action and adventure, Overlord II comes to you from Triumph Studios and Codemasters and has a 4-star rating on MetaCritic. The game challenges you to pick up the mantle of a mysterious, dark warrior known as the Overlord, raise an army comprised of hordes of minions, and either conquer or completely destroy the realm.

Your minion army starts with just a few creatures of a single type, but gradually grows to dozens with four different kinds available that have their own distinctive strengths and weaknesses. It’s up to you to decide which ones will enable you to get past the deadly obstacles, and enemies, in your path. And you’ll be in the thick of the fight yourself, wielding a variety of weapons, armor, and spells that will grow more powerful as you progress.

It’s time to stop wondering what it would be like to have a minion army at your beck and call—grab your SHIELD, fire up Overlord II and find out! Just navigate to the GRID Games menu inside the SHIELD Hub app, select Overlord II from the list of available titles, and enjoy.

The GRID Games library now includes 31 games valued at more than $500 that you can play on-demand on your SHIELD device for free. And NVIDIA’s committed to releasing new games every week on #GRIDTuesday—so mark your calendars.

GRID is an on-demand gaming service that streams a library of popular games to SHIELD devices in high definition, with fluid frame rates and low latency. GRID is like Netflix for games, and it’s available exclusively to SHIELD owners in North America and most of Western Europe for free though June 30, 2015. Coverage will be expanded to include Germany and the Asia Pacific Region next year. Go here to learn more.
