Last seen on the Lionsgate-owned STARZ' series Ash vs. Evil Dead, Dead by Daylight, developed by Behaviour Interactive and published by Starbreeze Studios in 2016, will include Ash alongside other downloadable characters (DLC) from other horror franchises like Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Saw. Demos for the DLC are available at the game's booth in PAX East.

The survival horror game will feature Campbell's likeness and voice. The developers describe the in-game character as the "blowhard heroic monster fighter," which is good news for the primitive screwheads on Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and likely also available come the Nintendo Switch version Fall 2019.

Behaviour Interactive also announced a partnership with Amazon to incorporate their GameOn Tournament Organizer service to the game. The Twitch extension allows streamers to invite their community to join them in casual competitions from within the game. The integration is currently in beta.

Following Starz' cancellation of Ash vs. Evil Dead in 2018, Campbell announced his "retirement" from the role on social media. Guess this change of heart offers a sliver of hope for dystopian Ash to show up to ride again on screen.
