Saber Interactive, Boss Team Games, and Metro Goldwyn Mayer have released the Army of Darkness update for Evil Dead: The Game.

This major content update introduces a new map featuring Castle Kandar, the setting of the classic MGM film Army of Darkness, as well as two new weapons, new premium cosmetics and a new single-player Exploration mode.

The new map, weapons and mode are free for all owners of Evil Dead: The Game. The update is available now for players on consoles and PC via the Epic Games Store.

Evil Dead: The Game is officially licensed by Boss Team Games from Renaissance Pictures, STUDIOCANAL, MGM, and Lionsgate.

The free weapons in the Army of Darkness expansion include the Mace, a slow but powerful close-range weapon and the ranged Explosive Crossbow.

Players can purchase two new Ash outfits from Army of Darkness: the Ash Williams S-Mart Employee Outfit and the Ash Williams Gallant Knight Outfit. The Medieval Bundle is also available, which features new outfits for Lord Arthur and Henry the Red, along with a golden outfit for Evil Ash and his minions.

Inspired by the horror, humor and action of the Evil Dead franchise, Evil Dead: The Game brings the series’ most popular characters together in a battle with the forces of darkness.
