Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games has announced and revealed, Evil Dead: The Game during the recently concluded The Game Awards.
Evil Dead: The Game is a co-op and PvP multiplayer title in development for the PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
The Evil Dead universe is coming back with its chainsaw-wielding hero Ashley J. Williams courtesy of Boss Team Games who collaborated with Renaissance Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and Lionsgate, to create this game.
Based on the Evil Dead franchise and characters created by Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, the game 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 game will have you work as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, crafting, managing your fear, and finding key artifacts to seal the breach between worlds. Or you can take control of the 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, just like in the movies.
Saber Interactive promises that Evil Dead: The Game will be gore-filled as it tries to capture the characters, horror, humor, and action from the franchise. The confirmed location you’d be fighting in the cabin in the woods. Which is brought to the game with tons of terrifying visuals and all-new dialogue from Bruce Campbell himself. You’ll explore 25 weapons in-game which includes, Ash‘s Gauntlet, Boomstick, and chainsaw. You can also advance in a variety of skill trees to grow stronger and survive the experience.
I’m excited to be strapping on the chainsaw one more time, Boss Team and Saber Interactive are planning a huge immersive dealio, and I knew I had to come back. You’ll be able to step into my shoes and kick some Deadite ass!
