Taking place right after the events depicted in the movie,Evil Dead 2, Ash is arrested for the murder of the Deadite bodies found at the cabin and convicted. Found psychopathic, Ash is sentenced to Sunny Meadows, an institute for the criminally insane. Though free from the madness that plagued him in the woods, Ash learns that the Necromonicon Ex Mortis, the Book of the Dead has fallen into the hands of Dr. Vladamir Reinhard, the person in charge of the asylum. In the basement, Dr. Reinhard experiments on unlocking the secrets of the Necromonicon. Using a helpless inmate named Sam as a test subject, the mad doctor frees the evil and once again Ash must live the nightmare as evil forces break free and inmates are turned into zombie deadites!

Evil Dead Regeneration is a third person action game like The Suffering. Players control Ash, who fights with a variety of collectable weapons, which include the trademark chainsaw-hand and shotgun, as well as a pistol, flamethrower, grenade launcher and a harpoon gun to pick up. For the most part, Ash will need to hack and shoot at various zombie creatures until their bodies become weak. At that point the player can press a button to have Ash unleash a finishing move using his weapons. Ash can also collect "evil essence" in order to turn himself into "Evil Ash", a more powerful version of himself.

Also along on the quest is Sam, turned into a half-Deadite by Dr. Reinhard, he acts as Ash's sidekick in a quest for revenge. Sam can be controlled after finding certain "possession" symbols in the game. Ash can also kick Sam in order to attack enemies and activate puzzles.

Ash is still voiced by Bruce Campbell while Sam is voiced by Ted Raimi.
