Storm the battlefield with new playable Survivor and Demon characters, as well as new outfits, inspired by the STARZ television series “Ash vs Evil Dead,” including:
- New Survivor – Brock Williams: Ash’s old man himself, Brock is immune to knockbacks and has several auras he can unleash to help his squadmates with his active skill. These auras change dynamically based on how many Williams family members are on the team.
- New Demon – Schemer: Based on the notorious demon boss Baal, the Schemer is a trap specialist who confuses Survivors with illusions. His Meat Puppets inflict increased damage with a variety of attacks based on the fear levels of the Survivors.
- New outfits for Ash, Amanda and Pablo.
Finally, today all Evil Dead: The Game players will receive a bonus new single-player mission. Play as Kelly to track and hunt down the demon Eligos in this winter wonderland-themed challenge to unlock her free “Stay Frosty” outfit.
Inspired by the iconic horror, humor and action of the long-running Evil Dead franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the biggest names together in a pulse-pounding battle with the forces of darkness, brought to life with off-the-wall gore and visuals. Work as a team of four Survivors in co-op 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 and swallow their souls!
