Evil Dead: The Game is scheduled to be released on May 13th, and it’s going to allow players to take on the forces of evil while playing as various versions of Evil Dead franchise hero Ash or his cohorts Pablo, Kelly, Lord Arthur, Scott, etc. The game will also offer the chance to play as the forces of evil; players will be able to control a Kandarian demon. I’ve been very curious to see what the Kandarian demon gameplay would be like – and now a video has arrived online to show us. And it even has narration by Ash himself, Bruce Campbell! You can check out this video in the embed above.
As described by Boss Team Games, Evil Dead: The Game is
the blood soaked co-op and PVP experience you’ve been waiting for. Step into the shoes of iconic horror hero Ash Williams (voiced once again by Bruce Campbell himself!) or join up to three of your friends in an over-the-top melee-shooter featuring wild weapons and crazy characters that only Evil Dead could cook up. You can also play as the vile Kandarian Demon and haunt the world in spirit form to terrorize survivors, spawning Deadites and controlling items throughout the environment! You can even possess players and control their characters while they fight to save their souls!
Evil Dead: The Game‘s voice cast includes Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo from Ash vs. Evil Dead as their characters Pablo and Kelly, Marcus Gilbert as Lord Arthur from Army of Darkness, and Ellen Sandweiss and Richard DeManincor (a.k.a. Hal Delrich) as their characters Cheryl and Scott from the original The Evil Dead, with “special appearances” by The Evil Dead‘s Betsy Baker and Theresa Tilly (a.k.a. Sarah York).
The game will be available to play on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. The game is the result of a collaboration between Saber Interactive, Boss Team Games, Renaissance Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, MGM, and Lionsgate.
