Evil Dead franchise hero Ash Williams won’t be the only familiar face in Evil Dead: The Game, which will be available to play on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in February 2022. Other playable characters include Ash’s sister Cheryl, Scott from the original The Evil Dead, Lord Arthur from Army of Darkness, Kelly from Ash vs. Evil Dead, Pablo from Ash vs. Evil Dead, and a Kandarian demon – and now the game’s developers have revealed that Henrietta Knowby from Evil Dead II and Ash vs. Evil Dead will also be in the mix.
Evil Dead: The Game was announced as a co-op and PvP multiplayer game that will allow fans to
work together as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, crafting, managing your fear, and finding key artifacts to seal the breach between worlds. Or take control of the powerful Kandarian Demon to hunt Ash and his friends while possessing Deadites, the environment, and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls!
Plenty of surprises await in this gore-filled battle against evil that captures the characters, horror, humor, and action from the franchise. Battle across memorable locations including the infamous cabin in the woods, brought to life with tons of terrifying visuals and all-new dialogue from Bruce Campbell. Discover more than 25 weapons, including Ash’s Gauntlet, Boomstick, and chainsaw, and advance in a variety of skill trees to grow stronger and survive in this fun co-op and PvP experience.
It was recently revealed that there will be a single player option as well.
Evil Dead: The Game is the result of a collaboration between Saber Interactive, Boss Team Games, Renaissance Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, MGM, and Lionsgate.
We only have about five months left to wait for this game, and I’m hyped to play it.
