THQ has announced the release of Evil Dead: Hail to the King for the Sony PlayStation. The game is based on the cult movie trilogy and features the lead character, Ash, who was played in the films by Bruce Campbell. In this adventure, Ash goes back to the cabin in the woods in order to save his girlfriend, Jenny.
"Evil Dead: Hail To The King puts a new spin on the survival-horror genre by combining the successful formula of extreme action, cliff-hanging plotlines, and puzzle solving with Ash's signature humor," stated Scott Krager, executive producer for THQ. "As a huge fan of the movie trilogy, I was thrilled to be able to work with the Evil Dead creators in bringing the first games to the millions of fans anxiously waiting to play as the chainsaw-armed hero."
The game features environments from the movie and new locations that are set in the Evil Dead universe. Players can choose from several weapons, including an ax, a rifle, a shotgun, and a chainsaw.
