Evil Dead: The Game is Going Free on the Epic Games Store (That Didn’t Take Long!!)

Evil Dead: The Game was released last May and it certainly came with what I think could be called mostly positive reviews. Albeit, with that being said, the majority of them were all along the similar lines of it being surprisingly decent for a franchise which has, typically speaking, only seemed to ever spawn mediocre titles (at best).

Despite only being released 6 months ago, however, Evil Dead: The Game is now officially confirmed as the latest big gaming title to officially be coming to the Epic Games Store’s free giveaway! – And my thoughts on this? Well, it mostly comes down to thinking that this didn’t take very long!

Evil Dead: The Game is Going Free on the Epic Games Store

Set to go live on November 17th (this Thursday) the newly updated Epic Game Store website has confirmed that Evil Dead: The Game will be free to own, claim, and keep forever until the 24th. – As above though, I can’t help but mostly be surprised that such a new gaming title should already be heading to the ‘freebies’ section on the EGS.

Then again, I’m not entirely certain that this (despite the decent reviews) has proven to be overly successful in terms of player counts. I mean, as I write this, only 85 people are currently watching Twitch streams of the game. A drop in the ocean compared to the 25,000 watching Dead by Daylight which this was clearly taking aim at! – I loved the game, but even I largely stopped playing it after the first 4 weeks.

Where Can I Learn More?

Given that this is typically available for £31.99, it’s hard to argue that with it shortly set to be available for free, Evil Dead: The Game is undoubtedly going to be worth at least checking out for those of you who haven’t played it yet. – If you would, however, like to learn more about it, you can check out our review of it here!

Alternatively, to have it bookmarked and ready for November 17th, you can visit its official website on the Epic Games Store via the link here!

What do you think though? Are you surprised that this is already going to be part of a free gaming promotion? – Let us know in the comments!
