Deep Silver, developers of Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide, have revealed two new DLC packs for the upcoming Dead Island Riptide. The Survivor Pack and Fashion Victim Pack for Dead Island Riptide will be exclusively available to any players that pre-order the game.
The Survivor Pack DLC includes exclusive items like the BBQ Blade. A special weapon only available with the DLC consists of an extremely sharp blade that can be hooked up to a pair of fuel tanks at any workbench-modifying station. This “BBQ Blade” can wipe out a big group of zombies giving you the upper hand in certain situations throughout the game. The Survivor Pack will also include a coveted experience and stats booster to give players that pre-order the upper hand when leveling. Players pre- ordering the game will also receive a digital strategy map giving players locations to collectibles, quests and even flags to place on the map giving them the ability to share strategies with friends. The Survivor Pack will grant players access to a shop offering special discounts on weapons and items.
The Fashion Victim Pack DLC will also include exclusive outfits and looks for Dead Island Riptide. The players will have access to new outfits for the playable characters in Dead Island Riptide (Logan, Purna, Sam B., Xian Mei, and newcomer John Morgan) in co-op mode. Fashion Victim will be available instantly in North America to any players that pre-order the game.
Players that do not pre-order the game will be able to purchase The Survivor Pack individually on Xbox Live for 400 MS points and on PlayStation Network and Steam for $4.99. Fashion Victim will be available to purchase for 160 Microsoft Points and $1.99 on PlayStation Network and Steam.
Prepare for the zombie mayhem from Dead Island to continue with more enhanced features, weapons, locations, and a new character when Dead Island Riptide releases April 23, 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation3, and PC.
