Evil Dead: The Game trailer gives a closer look at its gory gameplay

Saber Interactive showed off new gameplay from Evil Dead: The Game at the Summer Game Fest event on Thursday. Evil Dead: The Game will allow players to play as one of several characters from the franchise as they fend off waves of deadites and attempt to save the world. The game allows players to choose whether to be righteous or evil as they search for artifacts, pages of the Necronomicon, and other series tidbits.

Evil Dead: The Game - Gameplay Overview Trailer

Evil Dead: The Game was originally announced at The Game Awards in December 2020, accompanied by a cinematic trailer that showed little in the way of gameplay. The new trailer at Summer Game Fest detailed the game’s mechanics a little more, showing players how they’ll be able to interact with the movie’s iconic locations and items. The trailer was narrated by Bruce Campbell, who starred as Ash Williams in the series.

Evil Dead: The Game is a co-op and PvP multiplayer action game that allows players to set their own moral compass based on the character they play. Players will work in a team of four to save the world from the deadites by playing as one of the movie’s heroes. They can also play as the Kandarian Demon itself, which uses the power of possession to inhabit other demons and take out the good guys.

Along the way, players can find audio tapes and other items that provide background lore and help them on their quest. More than 25 different weapons, including guns, sledgehammers, shovels, and more, can be used to perform gruesome, over-the-top finishing moves.

Evil Dead: The Game will release in 2021 for PlayStation 4/PS5, PC, Xbox One/Series S/X, and Nintendo Switch.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is one of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 games of the year, as it promises that DC Comics fans will get to see their favorite antiheroes wreak havoc in the Batman Arkhamverse. The co-op action game features a storyline straight out of Marvel's What If...? with most members of the Justice League getting brainwashed by Brainiac. And it has the distinction of featuring Kevin Conroy's final voice performance as the Dark Knight. On paper, it has a lot going for it.

There's just one problem, though. You can only play it online, even when you're going solo.

Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania is as much of a slam dunk as it sounds
Death Attacks Dead Cells' hero in the Return to Castlevania DLC.

These days, I don’t go into many video games with expectations. I’ve been burned enough times by disaster launches to know that I should approach every game with a bit of reservation. It’s to the point where I’ve wiped the word “fan” out of my lexicon almost entirely, refusing to get too excited about any upcoming game even if it's part of a series I usually like. Sure, I love the original Resident Evil 4, but you won’t catch me hyping the remake when I have no idea what state it’ll launch in this month.
