Evil Dead The Game: First gameplay seen shortly before E3

Evil Dead The Game

It has been known for some time that the Saber Interactive (World War Z) team is working on the multiplayer game Evil Dead: The Game. However, very little material has been seen so far. That will change shortly - before this year's E3. As the team revealed via Twitter, a presentation is planned as part of the Summer Game Fest. This will take place on June 10, 2021, the starting signal will be given at 8:00 p.m. German time.

According to Saber Interactive, you will receive detailed gameplay material from Evil Dead for the first time at the presentation. See The Game. We assume you can take a closer look at both the co-op and PvP elements of the game. There may also be specific information about the release date that has not yet been set. By the way, there is a picture of Cheryl Williams to be seen as a little foretaste or as a prelude to the upcoming gameplay presentation. She is one of the playable characters and the younger sister of the legendary Ash Williams - the real star of the Evil Dead series.

Evil Dead: The Game is a mix of co-op gameplay and PvP combat. In a team of up to four survivors you face the forces of evil and have to close the rift between the worlds. Not only are the battles against the creatures of darkness on the program, but also exploring the area and collecting better equipment. There will even be some minor crafting elements. In addition to Ash Williams (voiced by actor Bruce Campbell), there are many other characters known from the Evil Dead series to choose from. These include Lord Arthur, Kelly Maxwell and Pablo Simon Bolivar.

Evil Dead: The Game getting gameplay reveal on Thursday

Evil Dead: The Game is set to get its first gameplay reveal this week, lifting the lid on the long-anticipated horror game. 

Word on the Evil Dead game has been circulating for a little while now, with Saber Interactive announced to be helming the project. The game is set to release later this year, but thus far, we have not seen it in action. That is set change this week, unsurprisingly due to the imminent start of E3 2021. The game's official Twitter account unveiled that we would get to see the game for the first time this Thursday. The reveal will be a part of the Summer Game Fest Kickoff, Geoff Keighley's big E3-adjacent press conference. That is set to start on Thursday, June 10 at 19:00 GMT/ 14:00 EDT / 11:00 PDT. 

Evil Dead: The Game is the latest in a host of asynchronous multiplayer games based on horror franchises. Much like Friday The 13th The Game and Dead by Daylight, a team of survivors will be pitted against one player who is trying to hunt and stop them. 

However, one thing that will define Evil Dead: The Game from others in the genre is that the survivors will be the most recognisable characters. While other titles put a lot of focus on the killer hunting down other players, Evil Dead's cast of survivors come from all over the franchise. 

Several well-known faces are already confirmed to appear, of course, headed up by Ash himself, Bruce Campbell. However, other fan favorites will be making the journey to the game too. Cheryl Williams, Scotty from The Evil Dead, Arthur from Army of Darkness as well as Kelly and Pablo from Ash vs. Evil Dead are all confirmed to appear. 

The spotlight won't entirely be on the human characters though. Those who decide they'd rather become the titular 'Evil Dead' will get to take over the Kandarian Demon to hunt the survivors. This demon will also possess Deadites as well as using the environment to try to overcome the other player's teamwork (and Boomsticks or Chainsaw hands.)

No release date has been confirmed for the game yet, but here is hoping we hear more on Thursday. Evil Dead: The Game is expected to launch this year on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
