Horror fans will have to wait a little longer to pick up Ash’s chainsaw, because Evil Dead: The Game has been delayed until February 2022. Originally, the game was set to release some time in 2021.
The delay for Evil Dead: The Game was announced on the game’s official Twitter page. “Evil Dead: The Game will be releasing in February 2022 Hey groovy gamers, we’re targeting a new release date to give the team some extra time for polish and to ensure this is the ultimate Evil Dead experience you’re all waiting for!”
The tweet went on to say, “This additional time is also allowing us to implement a single-player option that will let you enjoy the game when you are without your co-op compadres.”
The cult classic film-turned-game seems to work a lot like the popular Dead by Daylight, as the official description states:
Step into the shoes of Ash Williams or his friends from the iconic Evil Dead franchise and work together in a game loaded with over-the-top co-op and PVP multiplayer action! Play as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, managing your fear, and finding key items to seal the breach between worlds.”
The beloved Bruce Campbell is returning to reprise his role as Ash as well, as he said the following:
I’m excited to be strapping on the chainsaw one more time… Boss Team and Saber Interactive are planning a huge immersive dealio, and I knew I had to come back. You’ll be able to step into my shoes and kick some Deadite ass!”
