It was unveiled at New York Toy Fair, as reported by comicbook.com.

It’s available for pre-order on Amazon now for $24.99 with a May
release date.

• Stranger things themed of Dungeons & Dragons: embark on an exciting
dungeon & Dragons adventure, hunt for the thessalhydra, "created" By
the character Mike from the Netflix original series, stranger things
• Great game for new dungeon & Dragons players: whether players are new
to D&D, or looking for a new adventure, this stranger things themed
roleplaying game includes everything a group needs to PLAY
• Detailed rules, adventure book and game dice: The exciting adventure
book and colorful rulebook contain tons of information on how to play
the game, strategy, and tips for players to advance a character beyond
the Fifth level, plus 6 Polyhedral dice so you're ready to play
• Stranger things character sheets: play as a favorite stranger things
character
• Includes 2 Demogorgon figures: the game includes 2 Demogorgon
figures, one that players can paint and customize.


UPDATE - over at Raging Owlbear, you can see a short Q&A with Stan! who
wrote the adventures and who notes that "ST [Stranger Things] is set in
1983/84 and the FR [Forgotten Realms] boxed set wasn't published until
1987". Does this mean that the adventure is set in a different setting,
such as Greyhawk?
