Evil Dead: The Game, which would normally be released in the third quarter of 2021, has been postponed to February 2022. This is due to the fact that implementing a single player option will take more time for the development team. Evil Dead: The Game was initially marketed as a multiplayer experience. The extra time is also being used to polish Evil Dead: The Game’s multiplayer part.
The detailed description of the game is explained like this on the site:
“Step into the shoes of Ash Williams or his friends from the iconic Evil Dead franchise and work together in a game loaded with over-the-top co-op and PVP multiplayer action! Play as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, crafting, managing your fear and finding key items to seal the breach between worlds in a game inspired by all three original Evil Dead films as well as the Ash vs Evil Dead television series.
Play as characters from throughout the Evil Dead universe, including Ash, Scotty, Lord Arthur, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, and more, with voice acting by Bruce Campbell, Dana DeLorenzo, Ray Santiago and others from the franchise!
Fight for the forces of good or take control of the powerful Kandarian Demon to hunt Ash and other players while possessing Deadites, Demons, the environment, and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls!
Whether you’re tearing a Deadite in two with Ash’s famous chainsaw hand, flying through the map as the Kandarian Demon in spirit form, exploring the classic cabin, or taking a ride in the Delta, experience the look and feel of Evil Dead in all its glory. Realistic visuals and a physics-based gore system bring the horror to life like never before!
Brandish your short barrel shotgun, chainsaw, flamethrower, crossbow and much more to do some delightfully gruesome damage against the armies of darkness with over 25 weapons and artifacts scattered throughout the game world.”
Evil Dead: The Game, as the name suggests, will focus on the Evil Dead series. The game, which will be released for PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series, will also be released for Switch, although it is not certain.
