Evil Dead: The Game — Spirit Points Explained
Evil Dead: The Game is a class-based multiplayer game that rewards players for specializing in specific characters. The oft-used phrase "play your class" is as relevant here as in purely competitive games like Overwatch. And Spirit Points are an important part of that.
Each class in Evil Dead: The Game has two to four characters (some of which are locked until you complete the single-player missions) that play each role. If you are planning on committing real time to the game, it is probably smart to pick one character to focus on from each of the four classes.
One of the best ways to level up a character is to use them in-game. However, there is another faster way to fill out your skill tree and build up your levels: Spirit Points.
How do Spirit Points work in Evil Dead: The Game?
Spirit Points are one of the important elements of Evil Dead: The Game that are easy to overlook in your first couple of sessions. However, do not forget to spend your Spirit Points. Gained after completing a session, these points are essentially bonus XP you can assign to characters however you please.
In Evil Dead: The Game, characters gain one skill point every time they level up. Spirit Points are an easy way to quickly level up your go-to characters and expand their skill trees without having to grind. This is especially useful since sessions often last 30 minutes or longer.
Winning a round will obviously earn you a greater number of Spirit Points than a defeat will.
How Do I Spend Spirit Points?
You can spend Spirit Points when viewing your survivors by selecting the Collection from the main menu. From here you can select any character, as well as any of the three Demon classes, to view. When viewing the skill tree, you will see the character's level and experience-until-next-level in the bottom right corner. You can spend Spirit Points by holding the Y (Triangle) button on this screen.
They drain pretty quickly, so make sure to keep an eye on your Spirit Point total in the upper right corner while you are doing this. It can be easy to accidentally spend Spirit Points, and while you can't get them back, Evil Dead: The Game will allow you to respec any character at any time if you want to re-arrange your assigned skill points.
That's pretty much all there is to this nifty mechanic. Spirit Points will flow pretty fast and steady if you just keep playing more matches, and the system is a great incentive for trying out different characters. It might even be a good idea to hold onto your Spirit Points until you've found the character in each class that you want to main. For more on Evil Dead: The Game, head over to our guides hub.
