FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.May 13, 2022 – Come get some! Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games have released the long-awaited new co-op PvP|PvE multiplayer action title Evil Dead: The Game on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store. Evil Dead: The Game Deluxe Edition, also available today, comes with Season Pass 1, which includes The Classics Bundle, full of outfits that take the team back to their roots, as well as three upcoming DLC packs, which will feature new characters and cosmetics.
 

Evil Dead: The Game’s launch trailer showcases the spooky and massive game world and the intense survivor vs Kandarian Demon gameplay experience. The trailer is filled with homages and nods to fan-favorite Evil Dead lore and scenes and features the original new song “Come Get Some,” a groovy homage to the Evil Dead franchise created by legendary recording artist and hardcore Evil Dead fan Method Man and hip-hop producer Statik Selektah.
 

Inspired by the iconic horror, humor and action of the Evil Dead franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the series’ biggest characters together in a pulse-pounding battle with the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four survivors to kick Deadite butt and banish the vile Kandarian Demon. Or become the Demon yourself, using its powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls!
 

Evil Dead: The Game delivers the ultimate Evil Dead action experience. Choose your squad with fan-favorite characters from every era of the franchise, including Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Annie Knowby, Scotty and Lord Arthur. Battle with more than 25 hard-hitting weapons, like the good ol’ chainsaw and boomstick, and level up a variety of character classes with their own unique abilities to survive the night in multiplayer and bonus single-player missions.
 

The title is officially licensed by Boss Team Games from Renaissance Pictures, leading European production and distribution company STUDIOCANAL, leading entertainment company Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), and global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) to develop the first multi-platform console and PC game based on "The Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn,” and “Army of Darkness” films and the STARZ “Ash vs Evil Dead” television series. The game is developed and published by Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games.
 

Players with NVIDIA graphics cards can experience Evil Dead: The Game with AI-accelerated NVIDIA DLSS for maximum performance and image quality. The game can also be played via GeForce NOW, NVIDIA's cloud gaming service
