Evil Dead is coming to mobile VR
Studio: Boomdash Digital
Platforms: iOS, Android
Release date: June 2018
Some franchises are perfect with one standalone film or series, while some franchises never seem to die (and nor do we want them to). Luckily, one such franchise that just keeps on going is Evil Dead, with an undead arm that reaches across so many different types of media – and we just can’t get enough. The latest thing to find itself in the rotting grip of Evil Dead is the upcoming iOS and Android VR title, Evil Dead: Virtual Nightmare.
Virtual Nightmare is being worked on by Boomdash Digital, the indie publisher who previously created Evil Dead: Endless Nightmare, a first-person endless runner on iOS and Android which saw the undead at the receiving end of your boomstick.
After a success foray into Evil Dead mobile gaming, the next step for the franchise is virtual reality. Though not much is yet known, a recent press release has shared that:
“Evil Dead: Virtual Nightmare will offer fans a truly unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves within the Evil Dead universe unlike ever before. With 360-degree sound and vision the players can roam freely around the Evil Dead world. Evil Dead: Virtual Nightmare will offer players a thrilling experience in first person mode inside the infamous cabin and engage them taking on Deadites in the surrounding forest.”
I’m always up for spending a little more time around Deadites, so I’m excited to see how Evil Dead transitions into a new playing field. We’ll find out in June 2018, when Evil Dead: Virtual Nightmare is released on iOS and Android.
