Some of the most exciting news from the Game Awards this past week was the trailer debut for the new ‘Evil Dead’ game.

Evil Dead: The Game will be a co-op and PvP multiplayer title in for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

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, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and Lionsgate to create this one-of-a-kind 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.

There were rumors flying around that at some point the new Evil Dead Universe would cross over with the original trilogy and this must be the intersection of boomstick and deadite we have been hearing about all these years. While it is not in film form, the fact you can take control of the Evil Dead Universe with control at your fingertips is very exciting.

For those of you that may remember ‘Evil Dead: Fistful of Boomstick‘ you are in for a treat. It appears the humor and quips from Campbell will return for this version of the game and it will take on a ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ vibe. 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.

 

“I’m excited to be strapping on the chainsaw one more time,” said Bruce Campbell, who has given life to Ashley J. Williams across multiple films and the recent STARZ original “Ash vs Evil Dead” television series. “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!”
