Boss Team Games and Saber Interactive’s Evil Dead: The Game will feature a whole host of characters from the franchise—and Evil Dead 2’s Henrietta will be among them!
Henrietta was memorably played by Ted Raimi in her monstrous, basement-dwelling form in the film. She also returned for Ash vs. Evil Dead and will now appear alongside characters like Ash Williams, Cheryl Williams, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Kelly Maxwell, and Army of Darkness’s Arthur and Henry the Red in Evil Dead: The Game. Here’s the official synopsis for the game, which is tentatively set to release for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in February 2022:
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 artefacts 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, humour, 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.
