Evil Dead: The Game is the latest symmetric horror title to come out, but it’s also arguably the best. You can get it with some PSN Cards from OffGamers here.
Just like the franchise that it is based on, the video game adaptation shoots for the moon and lands comfortably among the stars. Despite being imperfect with several flaws, the core gameplay is exhilarating and compelling, giving players on both ends a chance to have fun and enjoy.
Having said that, the best way to enjoy Evil Dead: The Game is as a Kandarian Demon.
The several downright evil and fiendish options that Evil Dead gives players to mess with the survivors are so downright diabolical that you won’t want to play for the other team anymore.
If you’d like to make the most out of your playing time as a demon, check out these tips:
Evil Dead: The Game – Demon Classes and Bosses
Evil Dead lets you pick from 3 different classes of demons. Each demon class in Evil Dead can spawn 1 boss as well as 2 different unit types.
The type of monsters you spawn in each match in Evil Dead depends on your class. Meanwhile, the boss is the unique boss monster that you will play as and summon. You can play as all three of the different demon characters (Boss, Elite, and Basic) in a single match depending on your circumstances, but your class choice will remain.
Demon Class: Warlord
- Deadite Elite
Tanky and straightforward, the Warlords are best recommended for beginners. They rely on heavy and short-range attacks with massive AoE damage to hunt down Survivors. They can even tear out their own limbs to use as weapons against nearby enemies. Although they have limited ranged attacks, Warlords can easily shrug off most incoming damage and are fast enough to get into the thick of things.
TLDR; if you like to get up close and personal, choose Warlord.
Here are some tips to help you play Warlord in Evil Dead: The Game more effectively:
- Do not flail blindly. Henriette’s attacks and bonus boosts are perfect for the melee range, but PvE players have adapted already. Learn to think before you strike so enemies can’t surround you in current matches.
- Play to win early. Focus on getting more health, lower cooldowns, and higher damage. This way, even the well-coordinated teams struggle to survive past the halfway point of the game.
- Don’t rely on Henrietta too much. Henrietta and Deadite Elites can distract Survivors from the real damage dealers – the Deadites. Late in the game, most will have a tendency to underestimate the basic Warlord units.
Demon Class: Puppeteer
- Demi Eligos
- Deadite Berserker
The Puppeteers are the ranged fighters of the Demon class in Evil Dead: The Game. They specialize in attacking Survivors from afar, pinning them down from a safe distance and preventing them from running away. They aren’t the easiest to play as each move requires careful consideration. But, they’ve been known to cause the most nuisance when in the right hands.
Use these strategies to get the most out of your experience as the Puppeteer in Evil Dead: The Game:
- Don’t fight into crowds. Puppeteer units are great at cornering Survivors so you can pick them off one by one.
- Speed is key. Eligos can turn invisible, has a fast attack speed, and can use warp attacks. Don’t be afraid to switch between units to wreak as much chaos as possible.
- The AI of the Demi-Eligos is a nightmare to fight against. Let the AI do the work for you and support it in any way you can.
- Focus on Infernal Energy, Portal: Elite, and Possession early on.
Demon Class: Necromancer
- Evil Ash (Army of Darkness)
- Skeleton Elite (Army of Darkness)
- Skeleton (Army of Darkness)
If the Puppeteer can be annoying, the Necromancer can be terrifying. Pulled straight out of the Army of Darkness movie, Evil Ash is the final boss of the single-player campaign for a reason – he’s the most powerful of them all if built right.
Necromancers use a mix of melee combat and summoning, requiring a collective team effort to win games early on.
These tips can help you give justice to Evil Ash in Evil Dead: The Game:
- Invest in Evil Ash and his Skeleton Resurrection ability. Your main strength is numbers. Even if you don’t win by overwhelming parties, you give them very little time to recover in between rounds.
- Don’t even bother taking out Survivors one by one. Your goal is to crowd them into a single area so you can use your numbers to take them all out in one round.
- Contrary to popular belief, Evil Ash isn’t difficult once you get the hang of it. The summon skill basically uses itself as it automatically summons skeletons that attack survivors for you. You can forget about it after using it.
More Demon Tips for Evil Dead: The Game
- Be fast and efficient. Don’t waste your time doing anything else other than finding the survivors.
- Keep an eye out for the map. Players with high fear levels will appear on the map and you can possess them once you have enough Infernal Energy. Avoid possessing lone players.
- As soon as you possess a player, waste all their ammo. Even if you can’t hurt other enemy Survivors, you’ll have used up a valuable resource that will help you survive better in the long run. Remember, you’re a demon – act like it.
- After finding the Survivors, plant as many traps as you can. You’ll earn XP fast by planting several traps so you can level up your Demon faster.
- Unless you know what you’re doing as a Necromancer, you’ll want to split up enemies. This way, their fear level will increase faster. Not to mention, it will be easier to pick off enemies on their own.
- Summoning demons cost a lot of Infernal Energy. Don’t abuse it. You’ll only lose if you start wasting your summons. Try to place your summons in key locations and keep enough points in your pocket to call in the boss unit when necessary.
What is the best Demon class in Evil Dead: The Game?
As we might have already mentioned, there’s a reason why Saber Interactive chose Evil Ash as the final boss of Evil Dead: The Game.
Evil Ash is an imposing figure that can summon potentially endless waves of skeletons with fairly good stats to boot. Not to mention, Evil Ash can dodge survivor attacks and break morale by reviving his minions. As long as you focus on supporting Evil Ash and building around its key strings, even groups of friends playing as a party will struggle.
