Get ready for a fist full of bonuses, baby. From Boss Team Games, comes a truly groovy special edition for their upcoming Evil Dead: The Game release! The game features awesome voice work from the stars of the recent Ash vs. The Evil Dead series and feels like a fresh take on the Dead By Daylight formula. Four players take the role of various series survivors, while another player takes on the role of a powerful demon, unleashing deadites. Play as Ash, Pablo, and Kelly from the series. Additionally, you can play iconic characters from the movies like Lord Arthur and Duke Henry The Red.
Originally announced in 2020, during the Game Awards, the game’s seen some delays. Considering world events, that’s to be expected. However, we’ve got a fresh trailer drop with the announcement of the preorders going live!
With the new announcement, we have a final release date: May 13th, 2022. The collector’s edition that’s still available runs $124.99 and has all the following goodies:
- The game itself (PS4, PS5, or Xbox One/X, PC)
- In-game skins for Ash
- A groovy art book, in hardcover!
- A blood-red vinyl soundtrack record
- Steelbook case for the game
- T-shirt in a choice of sizes
- Art card set
- Special collectible box
For my part, the soundtrack alone is almost worth the extra cost. You can find the collector’s edition while it lasts here, and keep your peepers peeled for more news as we get ever closer to the very dangerous night!
