Do you need PlayStation Plus?

Evil Dead: The Game is the biggest Evil Dead game to date, a multiplayer-centric third-person action game best played online with friends. If you’re on PS5 and PS4, do you need PlayStation Plus to be able to play with friends?

The short answer is yes, you need PlayStation Plus on PS5 and PS4 to play Evil Dead: The Game online with friends. Indeed, Evil Dead: The Game is a premium multiplayer game, and only free games are also free online on PlayStation. No, that doesn’t make much sense.

If you don’t want to spend the money on a PlayStation Plus subscription, you have the option of playing the single-player missions, which essentially resemble the game’s campaign. They’re basically short levels taken from famous moments in Evil’s canon. Dead in which you must relive famous scenes from the Evil Dead through the lens of Evil Dead: The Game. The gameplay is very stripped down, but it’s still an authentic and fun Evil Dead experience, if a bit difficult due to the lack of balance. Completing missions will also earn you unlockables, such as new characters.

There’s also a tutorial that doesn’t require you to play online, but that’s obviously very limited.

PlayStation Plus costs £6.99/$9.99 per month, or £49.99/$59.99 per year for the most basic tier of Plus which gives you access to Evil Dead: The Game online. Subscribers can also claim “free games” each month to add to their library that they’ll lose if their subscription expires, plus a bunch of other incentives like cloud saves. There is no free trial.
