Despite saying he was finished with the character, Bruce Campbell is once again set to reprise his iconic role as Ash Williams in the long-awaited, all-new Evil Dead video game.
Fans of the horror series, in which Campbell plays a bumbling and reluctant hero charged with saving the world from the otherworldly evil of the Deadite armies, will be treated to an all new adventure including some of Ash’s most well loved allies, thanks to those wonderful people over at Boss Team Games and Saber Interactive.
Here’s the official press release:
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.
The game will land on console and Nintendo Switch in 2021, with Saber handling the Switch port.
