Saber Interactive has released patch 1.05 for Evil Dead to fix issues and bugs plaguing their horror-based game. Here’s everything we know. 

Evil Dead: The Game has become rather popular with its community as the horror-based multiplayer game has given the Sam Raimi franchise fans their spin on Dead by Daylight. 

With abundant references to the iconic movies, Evil Dead: The Game has proved to be a true love story of the horrific. But with the fun and fan service, the game has its fair share of bugs. 

Saber Interactive has released its latest update, patch 1.05, to fix the horror-based multiplayer experience’s issues and bugs.

Evil Dead: The Game patch 1.05 fixes major bugs and nerfs Cheryl

Saber Interactive released the official list of patch notes on May 26, 2022, as the devs look to answer the cries of their fan base by fixing combat cheats that have almost made the game unplayable such as speed hacks and glitchy health regeneration. 

Patch 1.05 also fixes the long-standing issue of the game crashing after closing the pause menu, specifically on the “Find a way out of the pit” objective in Mission 5. 

One of the most significant changes from the latest update comes in Cheryl being nerfed as the character received a significant “balancing to her healing abilities.”
