In what is surely the grooviest news of the day, Dead by Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive has officially confirmed that the Evil Dead franchise’s Ash Williams will be the next survivor added to the asymmetrical multiplayer horror game. This news has come straight out of PAX East, where the new character will be playable at the game’s booth all weekend long.
The best part? Bruce Campbell was on board for the voice acting! This is certainly a very welcome appearance of the character, all things considered. The actor did say he would be reprising his iconic role in video game form, despite his previously-announced retirement from playing the part on screen. We will never get tired of his work as Ash, so his addition to Dead by Daylight is quite the treat.
As we learned from hints found by fans last week, this survivor release will be accompanied by exclusive character perks, containing a number of quotes and references to the franchise. We have included screenshots of a few of them below in case you need a refresher.
Ash Williams be released as a new DLC character early next week on April 2nd, at which time you can pick up the new survivor and begin collecting his various perks to power him up. The update will, of course, be purchasable on all platforms, so whether you play on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or the upcoming Nintendo Switch version, you won’t miss out on any of the fun.
The Dead by Daylight community is still going strong with no signs of stopping any time soon. We look forward to seeing what the future will bring for this game and will continue to provide updates moving forward. As always, we'll see you on the killing fields.
