Dead Island: Riptide pre-order DLC packs revealed

Friday, 1st March 2013 12:23 GMT By Dave Cook

Dead Island: Riptide will receive a batch of pre-order DLC when the game launches April 23rd.

Everyone who pre-orders Dead Island: Riptide will receive ‘The Survivor Pack’ which includes the following:

  • A BBQ Blade: An exclusive weapon that combines a sharp blade with fuel tanks to make a flame-spewing sword.
  • An XP booster: This will essentially make your character level faster for a while.
  • A special shop: Players can access a discount shop that offers big savings on weapons and gear.

GAME UK stores have a second, exclusive pre-order DLC called ‘Fashion Victim’, which includes a set of new co-op skins for Logan, Purna, Sam B., Xian Mei, and new character John Morgan.

You can still pick up the DLC even if you don’t pre-order the game, but it’ll cost you.

The Survivor pack will be available for 400 Microsoft Points or £3.99 on PlayStation Network and Steam. The Fashion Victim pack will cost 160 Microsoft Points or £1.49 respectively.

Dead Island: Riptide got a nine-minute gameplay trailer last month, showing off plenty of combat, weapons and the game’s improved visuals. Check it out here.

    I still remember those days where cheat-codes would unlock extra weapons and mods… Good times!

    No thanks. I will buy the game when it comes into my local game store, as long as the reviews hold up. No more pre-orders, or store exclusives for me, i’m done with that shit for good.
