Possess your enemies and command the undead in gruesome, over-the-top co-op multiplayer action on consoles and PC on May 13
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — March 9, 2022 — Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games have released a new trailer narrated by Bruce Campbell for the co-op PvP and PvE multiplayer action title Evil Dead: The Game, this time revealing the unique gameplay behind the most horrifying force of evil ever to torment the living: the vile Kandarian Demon.
With terrifying possession powers and an army of darkness at its command, the Kandarian Demon is a powerhouse to be feared as it flies through the woods chasing survivors. Hunt down enemy players yourself or command ravenous Deadites to attack. Take control of your Deadite minions, environmental objects (including those infamous trees!), and even the survivors themselves to frighten and vanquish any mortal who stands in your way. Choose the physical form of the Kandarian Demon that fits your playstyle, each with different enemy types and bosses including Henrietta, Eligos, and Evil Ash.
Inspired by the iconic horror, humor and action of the “Evil Dead” franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the series’ biggest characters together in a pulse-pounding battle with the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four survivors, including Ash Williams, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Scotty, Lord Arthur and more, to kick Deadite butt and banish the vile Kandarian Demon. Or become the Demon yourself, using your powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls! Battle with more than 25 hard-hitting weapons and a variety of skill trees in multiplayer and bonus single-player missions to survive the night.
Evil Dead: The Game is available to pre-order now for release on May 13, 2022, on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, and Xbox One. Pre-ordering any version of the game grants two bonus Ash outfits: the Ash Williams S-Mart Employee Outfit and Ash Williams Gallant Knight Outfit. The game’s Deluxe Edition includes the Season Pass 1, featuring four upcoming DLC packs. Evil Dead: The Game has also been announced for future release on Nintendo Switch.
