The previously announced, Evil Dead: The Game, was already set to feature the return of Bruce Campbell as Ash, plus characters from across the franchise. The official Twitter account for the game has now confirmed that the entire original cast from Sami Raimi’s film, The Evil Dead, will be appearing in the upcoming game.

Ellen Sandweiss (Cheryl), Hal Delrich (Scotty), and Bruce Campbell (Ash) will all appear in the game as playable Survivors. Meanwhile, Betsy Baker (Linda) and Theresa Tilly (Shelly) will have their own special appearances in the title. More characters and info will be revealed later next year.

Evil Dead: The Game will be a co-op and PvP multiplayer experience. It’s currently in development as a multi-platform release for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. Here’s an official description:

Inspired by the iconic horror, humor, and action of the “Evil Dead” universe, Evil Dead: The Game brings the biggest characters together from the franchise in an over-the-top, gore-filled experience against the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four survivors, including Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Scotty, Lord Arthur and more, to fight Deadites, banish the vile Kandarian Demon. Or become the mighty Demon yourself, using your powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls!

Battle across memorable sights from the franchise, including the infamous Knowby cabin, brought to life with tons of terrifying visuals and all-new dialogue from Bruce Campbell. Discover more than 25 weapons, including Ash’s Gauntlet, Boomstick, and chainsaw, and level up a variety of skill trees to grow even stronger and survive the night.
