New Gameplay Details Revealed for Co-op and PvP Action Title Evil Dead: The Game
Alright you primitive screwheads, listen up! Hot off the heels of its debut at the 2020 Game Awards, developer Saber Interactive and publisher Boss Team Games have just revealed some new details about their upcoming co-op and PvP action title Evil Dead: The Game.
According to the developer, along with the return of Bruce Campbell as the iconic Ashley “Ash” J. Williams, the game will also feature multiple characters from across the series, including Kelly Maxwell, portrayed by Dana DeLorenzo from the Ash vs. Evil Dead series, Arthur, played by Marcus Gilbert in Army of Darkness, and Scotty from The Evil Dead, played by Richard DeManincor. The game will also feature Sam Raimi’s infamous 1973 Delta 88 Oldsmobile, as seen in the reveal trailer.
Per Boss Team Games:
For the first time ever, the Evil Dead universe comes together in one over-the-top experience starring boomstick-brandishing, chainsaw-wielding horror hero Ashley J. Williams. Boss Team Games has entered into an epic collaboration with Renaissance Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, leading entertainment company Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) to create this one-of-a-kind game that casts players against the forces of evil that have been unleashed from the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, with sights and sounds inspired by the films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn, and Army of Darkness, as well as the STARZ original “Ash vs Evil Dead” television series.
The developers also elaborated on what players can expect from the gameplay:
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.
Evil Dead: The Game is set to release sometime next year for PC, PlayStation5, PlayStation4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
