Evil Dead: The Game will be the fifth Evil Dead video game released to consoles and tenth adaptation overall, following titles like Evil Dead: Hail to the King, Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick and Evil Dead: Regeneration. A trailer for Evil Dead: The Game was first revealed at the 2020 Game Awards, featuring a voiceover narration provided by Bruce Campbell and numerous callbacks to The Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2‘s cabin iconography. Brief gameplay segments showed that players could not only wield Ash’s iconic chainsaw arm and “boomstick” shotgun against Deadite foes, but also various melee weapons, firearms and even Ash’s Oldsmobile.
Alongside the video game, Campbell and director Sam Raimi will produce the upcoming movie Evil Dead Rise, which focuses on new characters and a different setting in the Evil Dead universe. Campbell also hinted that he might be involved with Raimi’s Marvel film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, posting a London photo in February where the director was shooting his project.
Created by Saber Interactive, Evil Dead: The Game will release to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows sometime in 2021. No official release date has been announced.
