Evil Dead The Game Gets May Release & Collector Editions
Evil Dead The Game has been given a May release across current and previous gen Xbox & PlayStation consoles and will pit four players against the Kandarian Demon which was first introduced in Sam Raimi’s seminal horror movie. Not only that, but we have a look at the groovy collectors editions which will also be available.
Releasing on 13th May, Evil Dead The Game sees Ashley Williams, the main shmuck of the series, pick up his chainsaw and boomstick and take on the evil hoards, with a little help from his friends. The trailer, paying homage to the lurid, early-’80s horror movie trailer vibes, showcases some of the classic fan-favourite characters, weapons, and demons to look forward too. What’s best is that Sabre Interactive have managed to get every single character to reprise their roles including Bruce ‘Don’t call me Ash’ Campbell, who is also serving as the game’s producer.
Evil Dead: The Game is a PVP game that brings the best characters from the franchise together in an over-the-top, gore-filled action experience against the forces of darkness. Working as a team of four survivors to take on the Deadite scourge and banish the vile Kandarian Demon.
Alternatively you can play as the Demon itself, using powers of possession to stop the good guys and swallow their souls. As with any movie-tie in there are a selection of arenas from the franchise, as well as more than 25 recognisable weapons in multiplayer and the game’s single-player missions to get a hold of and survive the night.
