New survivors, skins, weapons, and missions come to Evil Dead: The Game in today’s “Hail to the King” Update

From Press Release:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Oct. 27, 2022 – Come get some more! Evil Dead: The Game’s latest update, out now on consoles and PC, unleashes a range of new MGM’s Army of Darkness-themed content, starting with the “Evil Dead: The Game – Hail to the King Bundle.” This new premium DLC, available to Season Pass owners or as a standalone purchase for $9.99, introduces Evil Dead: The Game’s newest Survivor character – the hard-hammering Blacksmith – as well as five bonus outfits for Ash, Henry the Red and Lord Arthur, including a special Ash Halloween outfit.

A hybrid support hero with some warrior characteristics, the Blacksmith is a master with all melee weapons, but unable to use ranged weapons. His special ability lets players generate random weapons for the entire team with scrap collected around the battlefield – the more scrap gathered, the greater the odds of creating an item of higher rarity, so craft wisely.

There’s also new content available for all players today with Evil Dead: The Game’s “Hail to the King” Update. Experience even more co-op PvP|PvE multiplayer action with two new weapons: the rapid-fire crossbow ranged weapon and the quarterstaff melee weapon. A new single-player side mission is also now available for all players. Kandar’s Witch has opened a rift in time and space at Castle Kandar, and if repelling the hordes of Hades wasn’t enough of a challenge, Henry the Red must put her to the sword and save the entire universe.

Inspired by the iconic horror, humor and action of the Evil Dead franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the series’ biggest names together in a pulse-pounding battle with the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four Survivors to kick Deadite butt and banish the vile Kandarian Demon – or become the Demon yourself, using its powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls! Choose your squad with fan-favorite characters from every era in the series, and battle with a wide variety of weapons to survive the night in multiplayer and bonus single-player missions.

Evil Dead: The Game is officially licensed by Boss Team Games from Renaissance Pictures, leading European production and distribution company STUDIOCANAL, leading entertainment company Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) to develop the first multi-platform console and PC game based on “The Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn,” and “Army of Darkness” films and the STARZ “Ash vs Evil Dead” television series. The game is developed and published by Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games.

Evil Dead: The Game is available now on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store. For more information, visit EvilDeadtheGame.com, and follow the action on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
