Fortnite x Evil Dead: Ash Williams release date & more

Horror icon Ash Williams of the Evil Dead series is coming to Fortnite very soon. Here’s everything you need to know about the collaboration!

Fortnite and the Evil Dead franchise are set to collide during the annual Halloween-themed Fortnitemares 2022 event. Earlier this week, the Fortnitemares trailer marked the unexpected debut of Ash Williams–the protagonist from Evil Dead. Portrayed famously by Bruce Campbell in the Sam Raimi-created series, Ashley Joanna Williams has become a horror movie icon over the years. Now, the Deadite-slaying warrior will become the latest to join Fortnite Battle Royale.

When is Ash Williams coming to Fortnite?

According to Twitter user thebritenite, the Fortnite x Evil Dead collaboration will arrive on October 22. As a result, we can safely presume the Ash Williams bundle will be available in the Item Shop at 8 PM EST. However, you can see Ash Williams already in Fortnite Battle Royale. The horror icon exists in-game as an NPC, roaming a Fortnite version of the Knowby Cabin, as marked on the map below.

What comes with the Fortnite x Evil Dead bundle?

Fortnite leaker InTheShadeYT posted the entire Item Shop showcase for Ash Williams on Twitter. The bundle includes the base outfit, two back blings, a pickaxe, emote, and a loading screen. As for price, it is unclear how much the entire set will cost. These collaborations typically range from 2,000 to 3,000 V-Bucks. For reference, the recent Fortnite x Black Adam bundle goes for 2,000 V-Bucks. 

Here's a list of the Fortnite x Evil Dead cosmetics based on the tweet:

  • Ash Williams outfit
  • Necronomicon Ex-Mortis back bling
  • Boomstick back bling
  • Chainsaw Hand pickaxe
  • It's A Trick emote

We’ll soon find out the cost and much more as the collaboration comes to Fortnite tonight, October 22, according to multiple sources in the scene.
