Evil Dead gameplay videos show what it’s like to play as survivors, demons

We’ve seen gameplay trailers, like the one embedded above, for the upcoming Evil Dead: The Game – which is scheduled to be released on May 13th – but now extended gameplay videos have also arrived online. A couple weeks ago, we got a 1 minute preview of the game’s single player mode. More substantial than that are a pair of videos that have been released through the Game Informer YouTube channel. At the bottom of this article you’ll find a 7 minute survivor gameplay video and a demon gameplay video that lasts just under 9 minutes.

As described by Boss Team Games, Evil Dead: The Game is

the blood soaked co-op and PVP experience you’ve been waiting for. Step into the shoes of iconic horror hero Ash Williams (voiced once again by Bruce Campbell himself!) or join up to three of your friends in an over-the-top melee-shooter featuring wild weapons and crazy characters that only Evil Dead could cook up. You can also play as the vile Kandarian Demon and haunt the world in spirit form to terrorize survivors, spawning Deadites and controlling items throughout the environment! You can even possess players and control their characters while they fight to save their souls!

Evil Dead: The Game‘s voice cast includes Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo from Ash vs. Evil Dead as their characters Pablo and Kelly, Marcus Gilbert as Lord Arthur from Army of Darkness, and Ellen Sandweiss and Richard DeManincor (a.k.a. Hal Delrich) as their characters Cheryl and Scott from the original The Evil Dead, with “special appearances” by The Evil Dead‘s Betsy Baker and Theresa Tilly (a.k.a. Sarah York).

Evil Dead II‘s Annie Knowby and Ed Getley are also playable characters, as is Ash vs. Evil Dead‘s Amanda Fisher.

The game will be available to play on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. The game is the result of a collaboration between Saber Interactive, Boss Team Games, Renaissance Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, MGM, and Lionsgate.
