Publisher Saber Interactive and developer Boss Team Games have announced Evil Dead: The Game is delayed again to May 2022.
While Evil Dead: The Game is delayed again, the game will now launch on May 13th, 2022 – forgoing its previously announced February release.
This is the second delay from the game’s original 2021 release window, and whenever it does release it’ll be available across the previously announced platforms – Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
“When we set out to create a brand new game worthy of the Evil Dead franchise, we knew it had to be groovy as hell,” the developer said in a tweet. “In order to deliver the best possible experience, Evil Dead: The Game is now coming on May 13, 2022.”
Here’s a brief rundown on the game:
Inspired by the iconic horror, humor, and action of the “Evil Dead” universe, Evil Dead: The Game brings the biggest characters together from the franchise 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 Deadites, 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.
