Evil Dead: The Game received one highly demanded feature today. The July 26 Update went live a few hours ago and it brings important changes, balancing tweaks, and bug fixes.

From now on, players no longer have to re-invite their friends after every match; their parties will be maintained between games. Queue times for some players will be reduced as those from the West and East coasts can now join matches together.

The patch also reduces the balance damage done by the Ash glove to 20 from the previous 40. The balance multiplier of heavy fist attacks is reduced from x3 to x2. You can read more of the changes below.
