Deep Silver provides details on the two DLC packs they are offering as preorder bonuses for Dead Island Riptide
, the next installment in Techland's zombie franchise. Preorders "in regions where it is available" will receive the Survivor Pack, and North American preorders will receive the Fashion Victim pack, each of which will also be sold separately upon the game's release. Here's word:
Pre-order DLC #1: The Survivor Pack
- A BBQ Blade! This special pre-order pack contains an exclusive weapon only available in the Survivor Pack. How better to dispose of the wretched zombies than with a sharp blade? Add in some workbench-modifying and hook it up to a few fuel tanks to bring some heat to a zombie’s heart. The so-called “BBQ Blade” lets you wade through zombie hordes with ease.
- The coveted XP/stats booster: Want that extra edge to level up faster than your peers? Here’s your chance to get ahead of the pack.
- Never get lost - A seamless digital strategy map allows you to track collectibles, keep tabs on your quest progress and flag custom strategies to share with your friends.
- A special shop! The Survivor Pack will grant you access to a shop offering a special discount on weapons and items. Happy shopping!
The Survivor Pack DLC will be made available to everyone who pre-orders the game before its release in regions where it is available.
Pre-order DLC #2: Fashion Victim
Tired of seeing your character go around wearing the same clothes all the time? The “Fashion Victim” pre-order DLC includes a set of new skins for all the player characters (Logan, Purna, Sam B., Xian Mei, and “the new guy” John Morgan) in co-op mode.
In North America the Fashion Victim DLC will be made available to everyone who pre-orders the game before its release.
