Announced last year, Evil Dead: The Game is finally here for consoles and PC. Check out the launch trailer, and the final details.
Come get some
A fan-favorite of a franchise if there ever was one, Evil Dead (and Army of Darkness) has been the subject of more than a handful of games over the years. All of those were single player however, and really none of them got the feel ‘right’.
That’s in stark contrast to today’s Evil Dead: The Game though. This new title, from Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games, ditches the solo formula for something a little more multiplayer.
Co-op and PvP|PvE are on the menu for Evil Dead: The Game, though there are solo “bonus missions” too. The whole thing looks to send players on a trip, through the long-lived IP’s history.
That includes the cabin, locations from the recent TV show, and yes, Army of Darkness too.
As you can see, while there’s loads of horror and blood & guts to be had, there’s quite a bit of the series’ staple humor too. And on top of that, there’s seemingly tons for fans to dig into.
Saber says that players will find characters from across the franchise’s history. Names like “Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Annie Knowby, Scotty and Lord Arthur” are all on the roster. Even better, each character can be leveled-up as you play. So they’re not just static stat-sheets.
Evil Dead: The Game is out now for the Xbox Series X|S, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Epic). In addition to the standard version, there’s also a Deluxe Edition of the game, which includes the Season One pass. That includes the Classics Bundle, a pack that’s loaded up with iconic outfits for the cast, and 3 upcoming DLC’s. All of those will offer up new cosmetics as well, but also new characters.
