Summer Game Fest happened yesterday and its showing of the Evil Dead The Game confirmed more playable characters which has fans wondering about single-player.

Bruce Campbell introduced the game at the Summer Game Fest yesterday with narration to explain the action on screen. Of course, you will be able to play as Ashy Slashy himself as both a young man as well as the veteran deadite killer from the TV series.

The title looks incredible for fans of games such as Friday the 13th and Dead by Daylight, and The Evil Dead aesthetic makes it all the more horrific and groovy.
