After being announced during the Game Awards 2020, Saber Interactive took the stage of the Summer Game Fest to release an extended gameplay cut for their next big launch, being an co-op action title based on the Evil Dead franchise.
Evil Dead The Game will feature some of the most iconic characters and scenarios from this supernatural horror saga, where players will have to work together as a team, exploring, looting, crafting, and finding key artifacts to seal the breach between worlds.
Evil Dead The Game: Gameplay and development
The title developed by Saber Interactive and published by Boss Team Games will feature co-op gameplay with up to four players, focusing both in PvP combat and surviving aspects, being an over-the-top experience for fans of the Evil Dead franchise and for those who love horror games like Dead by Daylight.
In the game, players can either become one of the survivors choosing any of the six main characters included, 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 the Demon seeks to swallow their souls.
Survivors will also be able to 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.
