A supernatural horror game based on the popular horror movie franchise Evil Dead was announced tonight at The Game Awards. The trailer features some series favorite characters such as Ash, who is played by Bruce Campbell, and his girlfriend, Linda. Much of the story featured is reminiscent of Army of Darkness, a movie that came out in 1992 which features Lord Arthur. The trailer showed Ash driving into the mountains to this cabin area which has The Book of the Dead. This book was left behind by an archeologist and it “awoke something dark in the woods.” Players can then expect to try to fight these zombies as they try to storm the cabin.
