The biggest characters from the Evil Dead franchise all in one game
Based on the Evil Dead franchise and characters created by Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, this game brings the biggest characters from the franchise together with an over-the-top, gore-filled experience against the forces of darkness.
The game pits you 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, Army of Darkness, and the Ash vs Evil Dead television series.
Work together as a team or play as the evil Kandarian Demon
You work together as a team of four survivors, including Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Scotty, Lord Arthur and more. By exploring, looting, crafting, managing your fear, and finding key artifacts your mission is to fight the Deadites, banish the vile Kandarian Demon and seal the breach between worlds.
Or, you can choose to play as the mighty Demon, using your powers to hunt Ash and his friends while possessing Deadites, the environment, and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls!
Battle across memorable locations
Evil Dead fans new and old will have plenty of surprises awaiting them in this gore-filled battle against evil. You’ll battle across memorable locations including the infamous Knowby cabin in the woods, brought to life with tons of terrifying visuals and all-new dialogue from Bruce Campbell.
Moreover, there are more than 25 weapons to discover, including Ash’s Gauntlet, Boomstick, and chainsaw, and advance in a variety of skill trees to grow stronger and survive the night.
