Hands is the Next Horrifying Family Member to be Added to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre on 6/11/2024

LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY, NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND & TOKYO, JAPAN – June 7th, 2024 – Today, Gun Interactive, Sumo Nottingham, and Black Tower Studios continue to put in the work to deliver fans new content in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre . With a teaser trailer showcasing his size, the newest Family member, Hands, is 7 feet tall, 350 lbs, and will rip a person’s face off with his bare hands. Hands is brought to life by Robert Mukes of House of 1000 Corpses fame.

Coming straight from the pages of Kim Henkel’s character bible, Hands is a distant cousin to the Slaughter Family, and has now cemented himself as an Uncle to Leatherface. His grisly and violent nature makes him a formidable threat to the roster of Victims in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

“Being able to work with Kim Henkel to bring his original vision of Hands to life from his character bible has been both gratifying and amazing. Honoring authenticity and adding more layers to the lore of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has been a dream come true. I hope players will find him as terrifying and brutal as I do.” – Ronnie Hobbs, Creative Director, Gun Interactive

Hands will change up the gameplay of TSCM even further with his ability, Ripstall. A former gearhead and mechanic, he knows all about different machines of all sizes. His Ripstall ability allows him to forcibly rip out valves and fuses on any map. Additionally, he can start up the generator or battery nearly instantly if a Victim has been able to turn it off. To coincide with this ability, Hands uses homemade electro traps from old cattle prods that can be placed on barricades, crawlspaces, and other metal objects to booby trap them.

When push comes to shove, Hands can always use his sizable body to barge any player who dares to approach him. All these things combined make Hands a great asset to team composition and an amazingly useful character that can forcibly shut down exits, containing the Victims.

Hands will be available for purchase at $9.99 USD. For more details, you can check out the latest post on the TCSM Community Hub.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is available on Playstation®4, Playstation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC via Steam and the Microsoft Store, as well as Game Pass on Xbox and PC.
