New Video Shows Footage Of Evil Dead: The Game – Narrated By Bruce Campbell
Sabre Entertainment and Bruce Campbell are pulling out all of the stops to make sure Evil Dead: The Game is everything fans want from the series. In this new video, Ash himself oversees four YouTubers as they face off against his own son.
Unfortunately, we’re not able to embed the video as it has a lot of saucy language, as well as a fountain of blood coming from Deadite scum, but the 10-minute video shows off what to expect from Evil Dead: The Game when it releases next month.
Backed by banter and “helpful” advice from Ash himself the team of four must come together to stop the Kandarian demon (AKA Andy Campbell) consuming their souls. The gameplay takes place in the iconic woods from the first movie. Players first have to tool up to get their ammo and health items in order before going off and searching for the Necronomicon. Once they have this, it’s just a simple case of staying alive until dawn. Simple.
The demon on the other hand has one objective – kill the team. To do this, he can summon deadites, possess tress and even lay booby traps in chests. In the video we see one unlucky player get ambushed by Ash’s possessed hand from Evil Dead 2, which in true to style form, gives them the finger before scuttling off. If the player controlling the demon can scare the pants off the players for a sustained period, he can eventually possess them and cause havoc in the ranks.
Evil Dead The Game is shaping up to not only be a faithful take on the long established comedy-horror series, but also a meaty game for players to get their teeth into. It features the voice talents of Bruce “Don’t call me Ash” Campbell as the idiotic hero, but most of the original cast from the last 40 years of the series are picking up their roles.
I for one cannot wait to see how the game plays when it’s release on 13th May for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PS4 and Xbox One. A Switch version is also in development but will come later.
