The asymmetrical horror video game genre is one that has been largely dominated by a single title, and that title is known as Dead By Daylight. It will be approximately a month from now when that game’s enormous player base across all of its platforms will also be celebrating the sixth anniversary of the game, although that game does have some competition. Prepare yourself for Evil Dead: The Game. A video game that has been selling at a rapid rate recently.
It’s funny to think about it, but Evil Dead, which is a renowned horror series in its own right, even contains some material that appears in Dead By Daylight (as Ash Williams is a playable character there, with outfits from the Starz TV show). In any case, the new Evil Dead video game was published just a week ago, and you can view the film that accompanied the game’s initial debut below.

The game gives you the option to play either the part of Ash Williams and his companions and try to stay alive, or you can take control of the Kandarian Demon and try to possess and destroy everyone. On the other hand, Evil Dead tasks you with actively battling Deadites rather than simply sitting around mending generators for a few minutes at a time while being pursued every so often (or the heroes).
On the day and date of the game’s initial release, it was also made accessible on GeForce NOW. Putting all of that to the side, how is the game going five days after it has been released? In a relatively short amount of time, it has achieved pretty impressive sales numbers, with approximately 500,000 copies being sold through various online marketplaces. There was a tweet about it that was released earlier this morning, originating from the Twitter account of EmbracerInvestor. The tweet discussed the sales of the company. That tweet is available for your perusal down below.

The most recent foray into gaming that Saber Interactive has taken seems destined for nothing but success; here’s hoping it can continue to stand on its own two feet. So far, it has a respectable number of player accounts. On the other hand, only time will tell whether or not that turns out to be the case. Evil Dead: The Game is now available to purchase for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, and Xbox One, as well as for PC through the Epic Games Store.
