As promised, developer Boss Team Games and publisher Saber Interactive revealed the first gameplay reveal of their highly anticipated co-op and PvP multiplayer action game, Evil Dead: The Game yesterday at the Summer Game Fest 2021, and boy did it deliver! Narrated by none other than The King himself, Bruce Campbell, the trailer showed off what players can expect from the game.
Along with getting glimpses of fan favorites like Ash Williams and Kelly Maxwell in action, we also got to see some of the lesser characters of the franchise like Scotty from The Evil Dead and Henry the Red from Army of Darkness take an ax to the deadite hordes. In addition to the standard, zombie-looking deadites from the franchise, players will also have the option to play as baddies like Eligos, the creepy, shifting demon from Ash vs Evil Dead, and Evil Ash from Army of Darkness. The gameplay trailer even revealed that players will be able to drive Ash’s iconic Delta!
Per the developer:
Inspired by the iconic horror, humor, and action of the “Evil Dead” universe, Evil Dead: The Game brings the biggest characters from the franchise together in an over-the-top, gore-filled experience against the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four survivors, including Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Scotty, Lord Arthur and more, to fight the Deadites and banish the vile Kandarian Demon. Or become the mighty Demon yourself, using your powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls!
Battle across memorable sights from the franchise, including the infamous Knowby cabin, 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 level up a variety of skill trees to grow even stronger and survive the night.
Evil Dead: The Game is set to release later this year for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. You can check out the Official Gameplay Overview Trailer below.
