Rather than focus on releasing DLC as quickly as possible, Techland decided that they would work on fixing the bugs that plagued their game Dead Island. Because of this, the Bloodbath Arena DLC was delayed, however when they delayed it they did not provide an expected release date. Until now that is.
Dead Island revealed on their Facebook page that the window for release for this DLC will be sometime in the middle of November, planting it right in the biggest release window of the year. Now this DLC will be free to everyone who pre-ordered the game at GameStop, though it will be $10 for everyone else. When downloaded players can take on waves of enemies in a survival mode, make some new weapons and of course level up their characters.
