Ash’s little sister is back for revenge…
Coming soon, Evil Dead: The Game will allow you and your friends to blast away Deadites as iconic characters from the franchise, and today we’ve learned that Ash’s sister Cheryl Williams (played by Ellen Sandweiss in Sam Raimi‘s original classic) will be a playable character!
Check out your first look at Cheryl in the game below, and look out for the very first gameplay footage from Evil Dead: The Game this Thursday during Summer Game Fest!
The game also features Bruce Campbell as the voice of Ash Williams, plus Marcus Gilbert‘s Arthur from Army of Darkness, and Richard DeManincor‘s Scotty from The Evil Dead, as well as Pablo Simon Bolivar and Kelly Maxwell from “Ash vs. Evil Dead”!
Boss Team Games and Saber Interactive (World War Z) are behind the title.
Boss Team describes the game, “For the first time ever, the Evil Dead universe comes together in one over-the-top experience starring boomstick-brandishing, chainsaw-wielding horror hero Ashley J. Williams. Boss Team Games has entered into an epic collaboration with Renaissance Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, leading entertainment company Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) to create this one-of-a-kind game that casts players against the forces of evil that have been unleashed from the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, with sights and sounds inspired by the films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn, and Army of Darkness, as well as the STARZ original “Ash vs Evil Dead” television series.”
“Work together as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, crafting, managing your fear, and finding key artifacts to seal the breach between worlds. Or take control of the powerful Kandarian Demon to hunt Ash and his friends while possessing Deadites, the environment, and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls.”
“Plenty of surprises await in this gore-filled battle against evil that captures the characters, horror, humor, and action from the franchise. Battle across memorable locations including the infamous cabin in the woods, 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 advance in a variety of skill trees to grow stronger and survive in this fun co-op and PvP experience.”
Evil Dead: The Game is an upcoming co-op and PvP multiplayer title in development for PC, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
