Play as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, crafting, managing your fear, and finding key items to seal the breach between worlds in a game inspired by all three original Evil Dead films as well as the Starz original Ash vs Evil Dead television series.

    ICONIC CHARACTERS
    Play as characters from throughout the Evil Dead universe, including Ash, Scotty, Lord Arthur, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, and more, with new dialogue performed by Bruce Campbell and others!

    PLAY AS GOOD OR EVIL...
    Fight for the forces of good or take control of the powerful Kandarian Demon to hunt Ash and other players while possessing Deadites, the environment, and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls!

    OVER THE TOP VISUALS
    Whether you're tearing a Deadite in two with Ash's famous chainsaw hand or flying through the map as the Kandarian Demon in spirit form, the game captures the look and feel of the Evil Dead franchise in all its glory, with realistic visuals and a physics-based gore system that brings the horror to life!
    THIS...IS MY BROOMSTICK!
    Brandish your short barrel shotgun, chainsaw, cleavers and more to do some delightfully gruesome violence against the armies of darkness.

    Evil Dead: The Game features multiplayer co-op and PvP for PC, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.

    Evil Dead: The Game surprised me in every single way. It was more than I expected. The attention to detail in the characters, enemies, and environments. The Knowby cabin is outstanding and nearly a 1 for 1 replica. The finishers are beautiful, the environments eerie and creepy, the gameplay loop addictive, but most importantly it is fun.

    It’s not the biggest multiplayer experience you could find right now, but Evil Dead: The Game makes use of its streamlined nature to deliver a darkly joyous romp that taps into everything Evil Dead with great success. Saber Interactive follows up its solid World War Z game with another well put together multiplayer horror title.

    Understanding the joy of the movies, Evil Dead delivers slick matches and buckets of fun, whether you’re a human or something sinister. Groovy. [Issue#16, p.155]

    Evil Dead: The Game is mostly everything I hoped it would be. It’s a fun, logical next step in the asymmetrical multiplayer horror genre. Sure, it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it did enough to reinvigorate my passion for this type of experience. I’ll be keeping a close eye on Evil Dead: The Game over the next few years. It’s a few maps and some solid single-content away from being truly great.

    Evil Dead: The Game is an authentic and passionate recreation of a chaotic, violent, and wildly slapstick classic. Though plaudits are deserved for the title’s atmosphere and fan-pleasing references, a litany of technical hiccups, unstable mechanics, and odd design choices frequently hinder this promising release. In time, Evil Dead can become something very special. But as it stands, it still delivers a fistful of fun for its ravenous fanbase. Shop Smart.

    Magnificent tribute to the saga that inspired it, Evil Dead: The Game is an asymmetrical multiplayer game that surprises with its constant dynamism and frenetic action very well staged. Unfortunately, the software quickly turns in circles. Despite the multitude of playable characters and the two gameplays offered (survivor or demon), Saber Interactive's game does not manage to diversify its approaches. A production that primarily targets fans of the genre and the cinematographic creations of Sam Raimi.

    We'd suggest it might be time to lay the "Dead by Daylight" formula to rest, but you know how these things go in horror movies: it'd only rise again as soon as our backs were turned. [Issue#373, p.112]

    Cons:
    No dualsense support at launch?
    Lighting is too dark even for a horror game
    Field of view needs to be adjustable
    Difficulty on single player missions needs more balancing or checkpoints
    Some characters are locked behind very hard single player missions
    Minor visual bugs sometimes that can be jank

    Cons could be wiped out with one or two good patches. If that happens then the game will be amazing. This should be a popular multiplayer game for years to come.

If something happens like EX: a game error for whatever reason you have to wait a specified time to play a new game. If that isn't bad enough I got disconnect due to an in game error. The single player is also trash, if you lose you wind up at the beginning of the level. there is an also an issue with you getting stuck or caught on everything. it could be the equivalent of a stair step in height and you wont be able to move forward, you have to go around, which is unrealistic. It can be fun but there's too much not to like about this crap. Expand
