Evil Dead: The Game Evil Ash Can No Longer Cancel Infernal Invigoration's Stun Animation in Latest Update

Saber Interactive launched a relatively minor hotfix for Evil Dead: The Game recently. One of the biggest things in this update has something to do with Evil Ash.

Players who relied on Evil Ash’s Infernal Invigoration ability might not be happy with a recent change. When used, Evil Ash grabs and suffocates a victim, sapping them of their life force while simultaneously healing himself. Survivors can break free by attacking Evil Ash during the animation, which means that the undead knight should be vulnerable until it ends.

Before this patch went live, however, Evil Ash players were able to cancel the stun animation simply by dodging. This allowed Evil Ash to initiate a follow-up attack quickly and easily when done right.

Well, canceling the stun animation by dodging has been fixed in the latest patch, so Evil Ash players may have to initiate a different plan of attack if they want to succeed from here on out.

This update also includes some fixes to the newly added Splatter Royale game mode. For one, the long wait at the end of the lobby countdown is resolved. Furthermore, character physics in Splatter Royale’s Spectator Mode is fixed, which may imply that players are less likely to see wonky or funny animations while looking at others as a spectator.
