Evil Dead: The Game – Game of the Year Edition Announced
Great news for fans.
The night’s not over yet! Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games have revealed Evil Dead: The Game – Game of the Year Edition is coming to consoles and PC on April 26, 2023. Marking the game’s long-awaited debut on Steam, this new edition of the blockbuster co-op PvP|PvE multiplayer action experience bundles the full base game with a hoard of content from six DLC packs and more, including the upcoming “Who’s Your Daddy” DLC.
Available on April 26 as part of Evil Dead: The Game – Game of the Year Edition or as a standalone purchase, the “Who’s Your Daddy” DLC features new surprises for the Survivors and Demons inspired by the STARZ series “Ash vs Evil Dead,” including:
- New Survivor – Brock Williams: Ash’s old man himself, Brock is immune to knockbacks and has several auras he can unleash to help his squadmates. These auras change dynamically based on how many Williams family members are on the team.
- New Demon – Schemer: Based on the notorious demon boss Baal, the Schemer is a trap specialist who confuses Survivors with illusions. His Meat Puppets inflict increased damage with a variety of attacks based on the fear levels of the Survivors.
- New outfits for Ash, Amanda and Pablo.
Additional DLCs included in Evil Dead: The Game – Game of the Year Edition feature a range of bonus playable Survivors and Demons with unique powers and abilities, as well as tons of cosmetics to customize your experience.
Inspired by the iconic horror, humor and action of the long-running Evil Dead franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the franchise’s biggest names together in a pulse-pounding battle with the forces of darkness, brought to life with off-the-wall gore and visuals. Work as a team of four Survivors to kick Deadite butt and banish the vile Kandarian Demon – or become the Demon yourself, using its powers of possession to stop the good guys and swallow their souls!
Play as your favorite characters from every era in the franchise – with even more Survivors and Demons released after launch. Use your wits and a wide variety of weapons to survive the night in standard 4v1 multiplayer, single-player missions, and the new fast-paced Splatter Royale mode for up to 40 players, with full crossplay between consoles and PC.
