Destroy All Humans Pre-Order Guide: 48-Hour Early Access, Special Editions, And More

Another remake of a cult-classic game is about to make its way to modern consoles. Based on the 2005 action-adventure game, Destroy All Humans will release July 28 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. The game is available to pre-order now with several editions and pre-order bonuses available, including an extremely pricey collector’s edition clearly aimed at longtime fans of the series.

Destroy All Humans is an open-world game set during the 1950s and parodies Cold War-era alien films. The game follows an alien named Crypto, who is part of a race known as the Furons who clone themselves to continue existing. The game opens with Crypto being sent to harvest human brain stems, which contain precious Furon DNA (due to a previous clash between Furon warriors and humans in ancient times) that’s crucial to preserving his species. Crypto is also searching for his predecessor, Sporidium 136, who crash-landed on Earth years prior; now, the humans have him as well as Furon technology. As Crypto, you’ll burn cities to the ground with your mighty Death Ray, use your Abducto Beam to toss around tanks, crush a farmer under his own cow using psychokinetic powers, and much more. Generally, you’re just causing chaos.

The original game earned a 7.5/10 in GameSpot’s Destroy All Humans review, which praised its embrace of cheesy sci-fi themes and awesome dialogue. “You take on the role of a comically murderous alien on a mission of domination and destruction against humanity. It isn’t all just blasters and explosions, however, as the game takes a decidedly tongue-in-cheek stance on the subject matter, modeling itself after the good-natured cheesiness of 1950s-era B-grade science fiction,” wrote Alex Navarro. “Flying saucers, death rays, mysterious G-men, government conspiracies, and lots of anal probing are the order of the day here. And while the gameplay doesn’t really do anything especially remarkable, and the adventure is unfortunately quite short, Destroy All Humans shows such enthusiasm for its thematic inspiration that you can’t help but at least appreciate what it tries to do.”

Whether you’re a fan of the original or looking for something new to play this summer, Destroy All Humans is sure to satisfy any fantasies about what it’d be like to crush human civilization using strange and powerful alien technology.

Destroy All Humans pre-order bonuses

Anyone who pre-orders the Destroy All Humans remake will get 48-hour early access before launch and receive a Crypto skin pack for free, letting you dress Crypto up as an evil clown, Elvis, and more.

Pre-order Destroy All Humans standard edition | $40

If you just want the base game, you can pre-order Destroy All Humans’ standard edition, which is $40 for consoles and $30 for PC, and get the above pre-order bonuses. While available in most physical and digital formats, Destroy All Humans isn’t up for pre-order on the PlayStation Store.

Pre-order Destroy All Humans DNA Collector’s edition | $150

Normally the collector’s edition of a game is its most expensive version, but the Destroy All Humans DNA Collector’s edition is far from your priciest option (that said, it’ll still cost you $150). The DNA Collector’s Edition includes:

  • Base game and Crypto skin pack
  • Crypto ‘N’ Cow figurine (approx. 9 inches)
  • Keychain
  • Six lithographs
  • Eye-popping anti-stress toy
  • Premium box

It’s unfortunately sold out at all major retailers at the moment, but it could come back in stock before launch.

Pre-order Destroy All Humans Crypto-137 edition | $400

The Destroy All Humans Crypto-137 Edition might be the most expensive version of a game we’ve seen in a long time. It’s a full $100 more than the SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom F.U.N. Edition that recently blew us away and far more expensive than the collector’s editions for AAA games like Ghost of Tsushima and Cyberpunk 2077.

The Crypto-137 Edition is listed at a whopping $400 and notably includes a Crypto figurine that stands at around 23 inches tall. You’ll also get a Crypto backpack that makes it look like the alien is clinging to your shoulders. Aside from that, you’ll get everything included with the Collector’s edition. Here’s a full list of everything:

Right now this version is only available at Amazon, though it’s likely we’ll see it pop back up at other retailers before launch.

  • Base game and Crypto skin pack
  • Crypto-137 figurine (approx. 23 inches)
  • Crypto backpack
  • Keychain
  • Six lithographs
  • Eye-popping anti-stress toy
  • Premium box
