Tuesday, 15th January 2013 14:00 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

A Dead Island Zombie Bait edition of Dead Island Riptide has been announced for the UK.

Currently available for pre-order, the limited edition comes with a resin statue, showcasing Dead Island’s “grotesque take on an iconic Roman marble torso sculpture.”

Measuring 31cm high and 18.5cm wide, the sculptures are hand-painted and depict the grisly remains “of one of Palanai island’s zombie infected.”

Also included in the package is the special Steelbook edition of Dead Island Riptide, collectible artwork cards, and a weapons mod pack.

The Dead Island Riptide: Rigor Mortis Edition, which is the special pack for North America, is bow available for pre-order through Amazon.

Dead Island Riptide will be released on April 23 in North America and on April 26 in Europe and the UK for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    Easily the most offensive thing to arrive in videogames this century. Well done Deep Silver.

    WHAT THE FUCK?!

    ….

    ..

    .

    How many minutes after this is shipped before someone waves it at a camera on Sky News and blames gaming for the fall of man?

    How many seconds before someone puts a video of themselves masturbating onto the torso on Motherless?

    Was anyone else surprised at how much cash the bikini clad zombie chicks in Dead Island managed to have on them?

    1057 bucks? Where the fuck are they keeping it? And why am I, zombie plaque survivor, checking out the contents of dead girls bikinis?

    That’s actually something that irks me about modern game design, finding stuff in places it has no business to be.

    Does the statue have squishy boobs? If so, that might get me interested in the statue. Still not so interested in the game so much.
