Evil Dead: The Game is an asynchronous multiplayer game in the vein of Dead By Daylight and Friday the 13th: The Game. A team playing famous protagonists from the series face off against a lone player taking control of the Kandarian Demon. The goal for the team of players is to gather enough artifacts from the series to perform a spell and banish the Kandarian Demon while the solo player uses Deadites, environmental hazards, or other minor demons to stop them. A gameplay trailer was first shown at Summer Game Fest on July 10, 2021.
