Evil Dead’s Ash coming to Dead by Daylight

Ash Williams, the wisecracking demon-killer played by Bruce Campbell in the Evil Dead series, is coming to horror game Dead by Daylight as a new survivor.

Campbell delivered the news himself in a new video, confirming that Dead by Daylight’s Ash will be based on the Ash vs. Evil Dead series that ran on Starz from 2015 to 2018. The announcement is spartan; we only see Ash in action for a few seconds. But Ash’s unique survivor perks — Flip-Flop, Buckle Up, and Mettle of Man — leaked earlier this month.

Ash Williams will be available in Dead by Daylight starting April 2. The asymmetrical multiplayer survival horror game is currently available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version is slated for release in fall 2019.

Dead by Daylight has a variety of licensed killers and survivors, including Michael Myers from Halloween, Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and David Tapp and The Pig from Saw.
