Boss Team Games‘ next project revealed a bit more, and we might be a step closer to say that not all licensed properties end up with subpar games.
Unfortunately, Saber and Boss Team Games did not provide new details outside the video that much, but they provided an overview that might help you learn a bit about Evil Dead: „Inspired by the iconic horror, humour, and action of the Evil Dead universe, Evil Dead: The Game brings the biggest characters from the franchise together in an over-the-top, gore-filled experience against the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four survivors, including Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Scotty, Lord Arthur and more, to fight the Deadites and banish the vile Kandarian Demon. Or become the mighty Demon yourself, using your powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls!
Battle across memorable sights from the franchise, including the infamous Knowby cabin, 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 level up a variety of skill trees to grow even stronger and survive the night.”
And here’s what we said back in December when it was announced during The Game Awards: „Sam Raimi’s work is getting reimagined in the shape of a video game. Raimi’s film debuted in 1981 (as a rework of the ’78 Within the Woods short film), which was so successful that it got a sequel six years later, followed by Army of Darkness in ’93. The fourth film in the series shared the name with the first one in 2013, but it was also meant to be a soft reboot of the series.”
Evil Dead: The Game is planned to arrive by the end of this year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. But will it see daylight by the end of 2021? (Unfortunately, the embedded video has to be watched on YouTube due to age limitation… that’s not our fault.)
