Have you pre-ordered Dead Island Riptide or maybe are waiting until you find out about what bonuses the pre-orders will actually be coming with? Either way today’s the lucky day as Deep Silver has announced the pre-order DLCs for those looking to ensure they have their copy reserved.
The first pre-order DLC is a little lackluster and only for those pre-ordering in the North American region. The Fashion Victim DLC is a simple skin pack to give all the playable characters, even the new fifth character, a few changes of clothes.
The second pre-order DLC and clearly superior is The Survivor Pack, which comes with th exclusive “BBQ Blade” weapon, XP/stats booster, digital strategy map, and a special shop. The BBQ Blade is a weapon that combines the dismemberment of a blade and the warmth of burning fuel. The XP/stats booster and digital strategy map are pretty straight forward, but should prove invaluable for those that utilize them. The shop allows players get in-game discounts on weapons and items. The Survivor Pack DLC is for all those that pre-order before release in any region that includes the pack.
Even though they serve as pre-order DLC, those that are still interested in purchasing these two DLCs will be able to do so day one with Fashion Victim available for 160 MS Points for Xbox 360 or $1.99 for either PS3 or Steam and The Survivor Pack for 400 MS Points for Xbox 360 or $4.99 for either PS3 or Steam.
Dead Island Riptide will be released in North America April 23rd, 2013 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
