Sorry, no Evil Dead: The Game screenshots yet.
"For the forseeable future"
In sad news for fans of horror games generally, and Evil Dead: The Game specifically, developer Boss Team Games and publisher Saber Interactive have announced that they will no longer "pursue the development of new content".

Evil Dead: The Game just got a free update on PS5 and PS4, which adds in the new Splatter Royale game mode, a gore-drenched take on the popular Battle Royale formula.

Releases in May
It's been a little while since we've seen anything of Evil Dead: The Game.

Featuring narration from Bruce Campbell, the above video focuses on the Kandarian Demon, which is the main...
Here's some bad news and some good news for you. Evil Dead: The Game, the adaptation of the Sam Raimi classic that looks surprisingly good, is no longer releasing this year. Initially pencilled in for 2021 when it was announced, it's now been revealed the title will be pushed back to February 2022. However, it sounds like the developers...
Hail to the king, baby
You can already play as Bruce Campbell’s Ash Williams in Dead by Daylight, but we suppose it was only a matter of time before Evil Dead got its own dedicated game. This is a co-op game coming to PlayStation 5 and PS4 later this year, with Saber Interactive leading on development duties. There’s an asymmetric element to the...
