Evil Dead: The Game dated, hitting consoles and PC in May

The wait for the latest video game to star the classic, blood-soaked Evil Dead movie series is almost over. Evil Dead: The Game arrives in May.

How do you stop it?!

It’s finally on the way. Evil Dead: The Game is coming up, and set to hit consoles and the PC on May 13th. And with it, will come a massive love-letter to the iconic horror/comedy series.

But not only that, there are also some pre-order bonuses, as well as a pretty-packed collector’s edition.

Evil Dead: The Game brings the biggest characters from the franchise together in an over-the-top, gore-filled action experience against the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four survivors, including Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Scotty, Lord Arthur and more, to kick Deadite butt and banish the vile Kandarian Demon. Or become the mighty Demon yourself, using your powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls! Discover fan-favorite sights from the franchise, battle with more than 25 hard-hitting weapons in multiplayer and the game’s bonus single-player missions, and level up a variety of skill trees to survive the night.

Boss Team Games press release

You saw them in the trailer above, but just to reiterate, both Ash Williams in his S-Mart Employee Outfit and his “Gallant Knight Outfit” are yours for pre-ordering Evil Dead: The Game. There are 2 different versions of that, with the standard clocking in at $39.99 USD, and the Deluxe Edition hitting $59.99 USD. The difference is that the Deluxe is packing season 1 of the post-launch DLC. That’s not been detailed as of yet, but you do get it at a discounted rate in the bundle.

Collecting Deadites

Then there are the Collector’s Editions. Both are pretty beefy, with the same inclusions, outside of one pretty big bonus. The Ultimate Collector’s Edition actually included a life-size Book of the Dead. Yes, a full-scale prop, as seen in the movies. Oh, and I say included because it’s sold out. Yep, that one went pretty fast.

The second version is still up for pre-purchase though, and as I said is the same (sans prop).

In addition to the standard edition of the game, Boss Team Games are producing two special physical Collector’s Editions that are also available for pre-order today. Evil Dead: The Game Collector’s Editions will only be available in limited quantities and feature rare, official collectibles. The Collector’s Edition includes: the Deluxe Edition of the game with Season Pass 1, an exclusive in-game skin for Ash designed by Tom Savini, exclusive steel case, collectible box, hardcover artbook, original vinyl soundtrack, exclusive T-shirt, and five art cards, all for $124.99. The Ultimate Collector’s Edition includes all of the above content, as well as a full-size replica Evil Dead II Book of the Dead Necronomicon Prop by Trick or Treat Studios and licensed by STUDIOCANAL, for $199.99. Pre-orders for both versions of the Collector’s Editions are available directly from the official Boss Team Games store at https://store.bossteamgames.com.
