When Evil Dead: The Game launched almost a year ago, it immediately resurrected one of the most beloved horror franchises in video game history. With an impressive roster of characters ranging from heroes and villains to demons and iconic locations from the Evil Dead movies and TV series, this multiplayer title captured the attention of both fans and critics alike. Unlike some other asymmetrical multiplayer games that have struggled to gain traction, Evil Dead proved to be a smashing success, delivering a thrilling and satisfying gameplay experience.
Perhaps it’s not shocking to hear that the horror is making a comeback in the form of a GotY edition. Even those who haven’t played it before will be enticed to try out this latest iteration as it contains all the previous downloadable content, in addition to the brand new “Who’s Your Daddy” pack. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect the new edition to include below:
- Ash, Amanda, and Pablo have some fresh threads to show off with their brand new outfits.
- The Schemer, a trap specialist, is inspired by the infamous demon boss Baal. He utilises illusions to confuse Survivors, and his Meat Puppets are capable of inflicting higher damage output depending on the fear levels of the Survivors.
- Introducing Brock Williams, the latest Survivor to join the fray. A direct descendant of Ash himself, Brock boasts an innate resistance to knockbacks, and he possesses a diverse range of auras that he can unleash to aid his comrades in battle. Interestingly, these auras are not static and shift dynamically, influenced by the number of other Williams family members present in the squad.
Prepare yourselves, horror fans! Evil Dead: The Game – Game of the Year Edition is coming to PlayStation and Xbox platforms, as well as both Steam and Epic for PC gamers, on April 26th so mark that date down in your calendar. If you already have the title, don’t fret. You can still join in on the exciting action-packed adventure of “Who’s Your Daddy” by purchasing the pack separately on your preferred platform. Here’s some background on the game itself if you want to go and check that out before the GotY edition arrives.
