‘Evil Dead: The Game’, a long-awaited game based on the classic ‘Death of the Demon’ franchise, has got an official synopsis, further revealing the game’s mechanics, which will allow players to take on the roles of survivors or demons in an epic and bloody.
“For the first time, the universe of ‘Death of the Demon’ connects in an electrifying experience with hero Ashley J. Williams. Team up with a team of four survivors to explore, create, control your fear, and find essential artifacts to bridge the divide between worlds. Or take control of the mighty Kandarian demons to hunt Ash and his friends through Deadites, the weather, and even the survivors themselves as you devour their souls.
“Many surprises await you in this bloody battle against evil that captures the humor, terror and spirit of the franchise. Take action at memorable locations, including the infamous Forest Cabin, and discover over 25 types of weapons. “
Bruce Campbell will return as the iconic Ash.
The game will also feature the return of Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly Maxwell, from the series’ Ash vs Evil Dead ‘), Marcus Gilbert (Arthur, from’ A Hallucinating Night 3 ‘) and Richard DeManincor (Scotty, from the original’ The Death of Demon ‘).
Containing both co-op and PvP modes, the game will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC in 2021.
Bruce Campbell recently revealed new details on the highly anticipated ‘Evil Dead Rise’, stating that the new film will feature a female character.
“The main element of the franchise has always been to have ordinary people facing an uncontrollable force of evil. It’s a scary concept. They are not competent people, they are not soldiers. And in this new movie, it will be the same. We will have a heroine who will try to save her family.
He adds: “It will be a very modern story; an urban “demonic death”. We hope to film it next year.
Recalling that the remake and the first two films of the franchise took place in a cabin in the middle of a forest in Tennessee, but the new film will change that concept.
Recently, Bruce Campbell, the star of the originals, revealed to 1428 Elm that ‘Evil Dead Rise’ will take place in an urban setting, and the horror scenes will be spread across an entire city.
“Evil Dead Rise” will feature grotesque scenes on a scale fans have never seen. Forget the cabin in the forest and lock the doors of your houses because the living dead will invade the streets, ”he said.
Previously, Bloody Disgusting had already announced that the sequence should have a building or a skyscraper as the main storyline, which would be a direct reference to the new title.
Unfortunately, Campbell has also confirmed that Ash will not be returning for the new movie, as new protagonists will be added.
“The franchise has to stand on its own without depending on either character, you know?” What is good is liberating. We can put in different heroes and heroines now, it will be a more dynamic plot … We just want to keep the series up to date, and not save what was in the past. The mantra of the franchise is that our heroes are just ordinary people, they can be anyone. “
According to Empire, Cronin was selected by Sam Raimi himself, creator of the original films.
On his Twitter profile, Cronin said he was honored to have the opportunity to work with Raimi, producer Robert Tapert and Campbell himself.
“I think the cat is out of the bag. Or did Henrietta come out of the cellar? I am delighted with all kind words and wish good luck. Thank you! I am honored to collaborate with legends Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert and Bruce Campbell in a new chapter of the “Death of the Demon” franchise. ”
