The official cover art for Evil Dead: The Game has been revealed and it features many of our favourite characters ready to do battle with the deadites!
The game comes to us from Boss Team Games and Saber Interactive and will feature the voices of numerous actors from the Evil Dead franchise, including Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, Ellen Sandweiss as Cheryl Williams (The Evil Dead), Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar (Ash vs. Evil Dead), Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell (Ash vs. Evil Dead), Marcus Gilbert as Arthur (Army of Darkness), and Richard DeManincor as Scotty (The Evil Dead). A co-op and PvP multiplayer title, Evil Dead: The Game will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Here’s what Boss Team Games has to say about it:
“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, leading entertainment company Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and global content leader Lionsgate to create this one-of-a-kind game that 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.
“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.”
