Yes! In Evil Dead: The Game, Bruce Campbell will reprise his role as the famous Ash Williams. There will be four different versions of the character to choose from, with Campbell providing the voice for all of them.

Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo, who played Pablo and Kelly in the TV drama Ash vs. The Evil Dead, will also return.

ICONIC CHARACTERS

Play as characters from throughout the Evil Dead universe, including Ash, Scotty, Lord Arthur, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, and more, with new dialogue performed by Bruce Campbell and others!

Evil Dead: The Game is reportedly bringing back a few more of the film’s original cast members. The actors who played Cheryl Williams and Scotty in The Evil Dead are returning to voice their characters in the game, according to series star Bruce Campbell.

The Evil Dead, the first film in the horror franchise directed by Sam Raimi, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year (Spider-Man, Doctor Strange 2). While the planned Evil Dead: The Game has been postponed until 2021 for a variety of reasons, it will reportedly feature many famous performers from the series’ 40-year history.

PLAY AS GOOD OR EVIL…

Fight for the forces of good or take control of the powerful Kandarian Demon to hunt Ash and other players while possessing Deadites, the environment, and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls!

While Evil Dead: The Game will be primarily multiplayer-focused in the style of Left 4 Dead/Dead By Daylight, chief creative officer Tim Willits says there will be “a couple of side missions” that can be played single-player in the same interview – and we confirmed with developer Saber Interactive that the multiplayer side will at the very least be playable solo with bots.

In February 2022, Evil Dead: The Game will be released.

The next Evil Dead game, cleverly dubbed Evil Dead: The Game, is set to release in February 2022 after a long wait. The planned single-player aspect of the multiplayer-focused horror game, however, may not be as extensive as fans might want — though we can confirm that the multiplayer part will be played solo with AI bots.

Evil Dead: The Game is being developed by Saber Interactive, the studio behind the zombie survival co-op game World War Z, so it’s no surprise that Evil Dead is essentially a multiplayer game. It’s reminiscent of World War Z or Left 4 Dead, but with asymmetrical elements akin to Dead By Daylight.

However, Saber revealed in August that Evil Dead will be delayed until next year, in part to “add a single-player mode that will allow you to enjoy the game when you are not with your co-op compadres.” Fans of the original Evil Dead were overjoyed by the revelation, but a new interview between Game Awards host Geoff Keighley and Saber’s chief creative officer Tim Willits suggests that fans shouldn’t hold their breath for a big single-player campaign.

The single-player mode of the Evil Dead game will consist of bots and “a couple of side quests.”
