Everything in the game is based on the works and characters created by Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, but for some reason there doesn't seem to be any references to the 2013 film they produced. Perhaps done so just to keep things simple for longtime fans. You'll be working as a group in this massive co-op experience, which will remind a lot of you familiar with Saber's work of World War Z. Evil Dead: The Game is due out sometime in 2021, but int he meantime, enjoy the trailer and the info from the devs below. Along with a word from Campbell himself.

You'll be able to step into my shoes and kick some Deadite ass!
