First Gameplay For ‘Evil Dead: The Game’ Revealed This Week

Evil DeadThe Game is getting closer to a reality for horror gamers everywhere.

The first gameplay footage from the game–from Boss Team Games and Saber Interactive–will be available tomorrow, June 10 during Summer Game Fest, as reported by And, the two images on this page show the game’s newest playable character–none other than Ash Williams’ sister Cheryl, and the official cover art of the game.


Cheryl–who was played by Ellen Sandweiss in Sam Raimi’s 1981 The Evil Dead–will join the voice talents of Bruce Campbell (Ash), Marcus Gilbert (Arthur from Army of Darkness), Richard DeManincor (Scott from The Evil Dead) and Ray Santiago (Pablo Simon Bolivar) and Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly Maxwell), both from Ash vsEvil Dead.

Evil DeadThe Game–for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch–will let players “work together as a team of four survivors–exploring, looting, crafting, managing their fears and finding key artifacts to seal the breach between worlds,” according to the official description.

Or players will be able to “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.” Gulp!

During this “gore-filled battle against evil,” players can use 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 co-op and PvP experience.”
