Activision and Twentieth Century Fox have released Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse, the latest game for consoles based on the hit animated comedy series.

 
The game features a brand new story based around the parallel universes encountered in the Season Eight episode Road to the Multiverse. Players will be tasked with saving Quahog from Bertram, the arch-nemesis of Stewie.
 
Gamers can play as Stewie or Brian and can make use of a number of unique special weapons and abilities. Co-op and competitive multiplayer modes will add some life to the experience once the single-player campaign is complete. Additional challenges, multiplayer maps and even playable characters can be unlocked through gameplay.
 
 
Players will also encounter a full cast of Family Guy characters on their journeys, fully voiced by their original voice actors from the TV show. The developer promises plenty of references and “gut-busting jokes” reminiscent of the irreverent series itself.
 
A previous Family Guy video game launched in 2006, but poor controls and repetitive gameplay led to negative reviews. The comedy was a redeeming factor, however, and will likewise be the primary attraction for this latest title.
 
Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $59.99.
