The Evil Dead series is one of the best franchises of all time, and though the weird, wacky and gory adventures of Ash Williams are due to be made into a new game soon, it seems that one particular fan doesn’t want to wait.
Reddit user duncsmaps has made the cabin from Evil Dead in Far Cry 5 – and it is exceptional.
They added: “I especially love creating horror scenes because I get to add loads of over the top special effects! Here’s a speed building video showing how I put it all together!”
It took them around three hours to make, but I think you’ll agree that it was time well spent.
Recently, veteran Evil Dead actor, Bruce Campbell went ahead and confirmed that a brand-new Evil Dead game is in the works – and it’s going to be for console and PC.
Even more exciting is the confirmation that it’s not a VR title, which has got horror fans the world over breathing a sigh of relief. (I have nothing against VR, it’s just that far fewer people have the hardware and so VR games tend to reach a much smaller audience.)
Sharing the news on Twitter, Campbell wrote: “Hey, groovy gamers, this is a swell time to clarify some incorrect info that might be out there (including from me!): the upcoming Evil Dead video game is being developed for consoles and PC, not VR. Sorry for any confusion. Game on! #MyBoomstickIsTooBigForVR#EvilDeadTheGame“
Unfortunately, we don’t know when, where or how the new Evil Dead game will be making its way to our consoles and/or PCs, or what exactly we can expect.
After the original gruesome and hilarious films released back in the 1980s, the Evil Dead enjoyed an actually not-too-shabby reboot back in 2013.
There was also the wildly successful Ash vs. Evil Dead television series, which despite its popularity, ended up getting cancelled in October of 2018.
With a new game on the way it seems the Evil Dead franchise – much like the Evil Dead themselves – won’t be going anywhere anytime soon!
