It was announced at PAX East that Bruce Campbell will be bringing his popular character Ash Williams from the “Evil Dead” film and TV series to the popular cat-and-mouse horror game Dead by Daylight. Campbell teased that Ash was going to make it to video games in a past interview.
Dead by Daylight is an online multiplayer where a group of four players takes on the roles as the “Survivors” while one player takes on the role of a “Killer” that is sometimes a creature. The survivors must escape a realm (level) that is used specifically by one type of killer.
Since its release in 2016 the original three killers has grown to 15 and includes Freddy Kruger (“Nightmare on Elm Street”), Michael Myers (“Halloween”), Amanda Young (“Saw”), and Leather Face (“Texas Chainsaw Massacre”), each killer has their own perk and powers.
Ash will be joining the growing list of 16 survivors that include Laurie Strode (“Halloween”), Bill (Left 4 Dead), David Tapp (Saw), and Quentin Smith (A Nightmare on Elm Street remake). Like the killers, each survivor has their own perk that will help them escape from the killers and not be sacrificed to the entity that controls the killers.
Ash will be coming to Dead by Daylight April 2nd.
