PAX East Gets Gruesome

There are plenty of exhibits to see at PAX East this year. From AAA superstars to indie magic-makers, they’re all here. Whether you are into RPGs or 8-bit pixel art, there is something for everyone at PAX. Of course, some themes tend to overshadow others. In this case, it is the horror genre that is taking the convention by storm. From the live action Day’s End display as you enter the convention center to the various zombie-themed booths speckled throughout, it is not hard to imagine that some incredible announcements are going to be made concerning the genre. Well, as sure as the night, Dead By Daylight has a huge announcement. There is a brand new survivor in the multiplayer-horror killing fest, and he is a very familiar face.

The demon hunter par excellence, Ash Williams, from the acclaimed STARZ Original Series, Ash vs Evil Dead, is coming to Dead By Daylight as their newest survivor. Behaviour Interactive is partnering with Lionsgate Film in order to make this crossover happen. The model of the character will be taken from the newer renditions of the STARZ program showcasing actor Bruce Campbell’s aging one-handed stock boy aesthetic.
