Asymmetrical multiplayer horror action game Evil Dead: The Game is trying its hand at the popular battle royale mode in a free update available today across all platforms. Affectionately named “Splatter Royale”, this new mode lets up to 40 players choose Deadite versions of any Survivors or Demons from the game as they attempt to be the last person standing.
The Splatter Royale update also adds two new weapons: the long-range grenade launcher and the scythe melee weapon, as well as a new Immortal Power DLC pack.
The update arrives just in time, as Evil Dead heads to PlayStation Plus next week as one of February’s Essential tier free games on PS4 and PS5, but the game is also available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
Check out a new trailer for the battle royale mode below:
